Real software instances of all Calix AXOS systems expedite back office integration to enable faster innovation and new service introduction
Service providers face a multitude of operational challenges and additional expenses when introducing new technologies into their networks today. These challenges are magnified when service providers have multiple labs spread across various geographies, forcing them to manage hundreds of technicians installing, testing, and managing thousands of systems. In addition, due to the substantial amount of hardware required, testing and validating the scalability of management, orchestration, and control functions within a lab environment would be prohibitive. Data centers and central offices also bring additional costs for rack space, powering, and cooling of the equipment. These challenges and costs are eliminated with AXOS Sandbox, which decouples IT/OSS integration from hardware availability and gives technicians access to countless virtual instances of AXOS systems allowing them to test scalability faster without the need for travel, scheduling, or physical maintenance.
“It’s a matter of survival,” said Shane Eleniak, Calix vice president of product line leadership. “Service providers must find disruptive ways to bring new services to market faster and at much lower costs than ever before or they will be run over by their competition. AXOS Sandbox is a breakthrough tool built to meet that challenge, with the first-ever virtual instances of access systems enabling a DevOps environment to work in parallel across multiple locations. AXOS Sandbox makes SDA tangible and validates AXOS as the world’s first and only true SDA. For any service provider looking to understand the difference, Calix invites you to drop AXOS Sandbox into your lab and let the race to new service introduction begin immediately, across multiple locations and groups.”
