New software platform supports open control and management architecture for access virtualization LAS VEGAS – October 27, 2015 – Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX), the world leader in gigabit fiber deployments, today announced AXOS, or Access eXtensible Operating System, a Linux-based network operating system and software platform built for the specific needs of the access network. Completely hardware independent, AXOS allows for “software defined access,” where all software functions in the access network can be developed and run without relying on the underlying hardware and associated silicon chipsets. With an always-on architecture and consistent provisioning services, AXOS accelerates time-to-revenue, eliminates service disruptions, and reduces operational complexity for service providers. Three core principles define the AXOS platform: Fast – Modular, reusable software components with the ability to run on technologically diverse hardware without modification, reducing software qualification time, increasing new service velocity, and mitigating upgrade risks. Always On – In-service upgrade capabilities and built-in logic that eliminate service disruptions, constrain and automatically recover from faults, and prevent side effects caused by new software functions or human error. Simple – Open, standards-based, fully programmable management and control APIs that reduce operational complexity, enable automated workflows, and provide compatibility with SDN-aligned operational support systems for maximum interoperability. “The same SDN and NFV concepts that are enabling improved economics, scale, velocity and agility in the data center apply to the access network.

Telagility Enables UCaaS Integrators as a Modern Regulated Communications Services Provider

Unified Communications-as-a-Service, better known as UCaaS, is permeating the market rapidly as many companies choose to turn to the cloud based delivery of communications services including voice, messaging, video conferencing and more in an effort to reduce costs and develop a secure and reliable communications platform. In fact, according to Transparency Market Research, we can expect the UCaaS market worth to grow from $15.12 Billion today to a staggering $37.85 Billion by 2022. Recognizing the incredible potential of this market, Value Added Resellers (VARs) are seizing this opportunity to integrate cutting-edge communications technology into their service offerings, bringing to customers highly advanced communication tools designed with the end user in mind. It is no longer the manufacturer who drives the market, and customers are demanding solutions that are simplified, reliable, secure and affordable to enhance their overall business structure. However, unfortunately, providing a full site of communications solutions and UCaaS services as a fast and turnkey package is no simple task. The vast sea of communications services through innovative and cutting-edge providers is riddled with hidden taxes and compliance laws as companies attempt to bring these solutions to market. Discerning which technologies can best meet corporate communicative needs in and of itself becomes increasingly complex as new services and solutions are regularly generated. VARs looking to integrate UCaaS into their service offerings are forced to think outside of the...
