SAN JOSE, California .– (BUSINESS LINE) –Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today rolled out updates to its Intelligent Access EDGE platform that make the entire direct subscriber network more secure than ever. Broadband service providers (BSPs) must ensure that their networks protect subscribers from current and emerging threats. A secure broadband access network is the foundation for enabling value-added security services to protect subscribers and keep their data safe. Advanced routing module (ARm) software in Intelligent Access EDGE now identifies, isolates, and blocks unauthorized traffic through residential gateways so BSPs of any size can secure networks their access.
By combining Intelligent Access EDGE with the managed home network security services available through the Revenue EDGE platform, such as ProtectINTELLIGENCE QUOTIENT™, Calix guarantees a single end-to-end solution for BSPs that address the entire subscriber-side network. Innovative BSPs can now increase their value for subscribers by:
- Secure the network against increasing attacks. Broadband service providers using Intelligent Access EDGE can easily secure their networks by isolating Layer 2 interfaces, thanks to updated ARm software. Upgraded capabilities prevent unauthorized network traffic from flowing between interfaces in a subscriber-facing network and potentially attacking the network.
- Eliminate network congestion to free up more bandwidth for subscriber services. The new ARm software eliminates the possibility of the network being overwhelmed by multicast or persistent broadcast traffic. Suppressing this “broadcast storm” of data packets eliminates network congestion, so there’s more bandwidth to deliver subscriber services quickly.
- Accelerate security deployments by leveraging Calix Network Consulting Services. Broadband service providers using Network Advisory Services have found that they can plan and deploy networks up to 75 percent faster than traditional deployments. Calix network consultants work closely with engineering teams to quickly and securely deploy ARm software across the network without compromising existing network security.
