CityFibre’s John Franklin, Operations Director and Clayton Nash, Head of Products discuss the new strategic partnership with Calix, leveraging AXOS and the E9-2 to deliver the UK’s first software defined access (SDA) network.

The implementation of Calix’s AXOS platform sees CityFibre emerge as the UK’s only advanced-intelligence, wholesale infrastructure company, capable of delivering parallel 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) connections to every home and business, with further potential for speeds of 100 Gbps and beyond.

The new platform will allow CityFibre to leverage breakthrough technologies like NG-PON2, enable automation of manual functions across the network and offer unprecedented levels of programability, network intelligence and automation to its partners.
