Calix AXOS G.fast solution gives extreme gigabit-ready makeover to Platteville, Wisconsin MDUs
The Calix solution in Platteville consists of a full array of Calix software, systems, and services. The Calix 801F GigaPoint acts as the access demarcation point at the subscriber premises, terminating G.fast delivered over twisted copper pair or coaxial cable, and managed via the cloud through Calix Consumer Connect Plus software. Each GigaPoint is fed via a variety of Calix access nodes optimized for their location and role in the network – either sealed access nodes (E3-16F DPUs) that sit outside each building or E5-16F access nodes inside each building. E7-2 modular access systems in the central office leverage GPON technology to deliver services over fiber to each access node. End-to-end turn-up and provisioning is handled via the cloud through SDN-optimized Calix Activate software, which is integrated with CenturyLink orchestration software. This gigabit-capable end-to-end solution, which scaled from conception to commercial scale in a matter of months, also delivers CenturyLink Prism TV to subscribers in MDUs throughout the community.
“The CenturyLink G.fast deployment in Platteville demonstrates to the world how the promise of G.fast can be transformed into reality,” said Michel Langlois, senior vice president, systems products at Calix. “We are proud to have not only helped CenturyLink prove-in this powerful technology over both existing copper pair and coaxial infrastructure, but to have also provided the platform allowing it to scale into North America’s largest G.fast deployment in record time. MDUs are an underserved market globally, and CenturyLink is proving that service providers can leverage Calix to deliver a gigabit experience and capture the opportunity.”
