Next generation solutions being trialed in a Tier 1 network today dramatically transform Gfast deployment economics in MDUs by tripling subscriber density and doubling broadband speeds
With more people living in MDUs relative to other housing environments, MDUs represent a significant opportunity for service providers, as well as a significant challenge. There is a wide variety of variables when bringing broadband service to MDUs from wiring to building size to environmental differences, but Calix AXOS Gfast solutions provide a way for service providers to standardize on one technology for every scenario. Through AXOS, service providers can take advantage of an unparalleled time-to-market advantage through accelerated system installation and Always On capabilities that simplify operations and eliminate maintenance windows. By dramatically reducing the length of the prolonged and costly deployment cycle needed for fiber, today’s AXOS Gfast installations can be done in a matter of days, sometimes even hours.
“Calix has been the leader in coming to market with Gfast breakthroughs, enabled by our AXOS platform, from the first Gfast-bonded solution through the groundbreaking cDTA functionality which was demonstrated at last year’s Broadband World Forum, and now the industry’s first 48-port solution with Amendment 3 capabilities,” said Shane Eleniak, Calix vice president of systems products. “Each of these advancements has been focused on enabling service providers to deliver an unmatched broadband experience to all subscribers, even those living in older buildings fed by copper. With the E3-48F and E5-48F, we are taking a big step forward in allowing our customers to have a competitive advantage in every deployment scenario. We are proud that global service providers recognized Calix Gfast solutions as the best in the world and the world’s only software defined access platform, AXOS, will ensure that we remain at the top.”
