Calix raises the bar for network security with new capabilities in its intelligent access edge platform that eliminates unauthorized traffic throughout the access network

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(COMMERCIAL WIRE)–Calix, Inc. (NYSE:CALX) today released updates to the EDGE smart access platform that makes the entire subscriber-facing 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 cornerstone for enabling value-added security services that 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 your access network.

By combining Intelligent Access EDGE with the managed home network security services available through income edge platform, like ProtectIQ, Calix ensures the only end-to-end solution for BSPs that addresses the entire subscriber-facing network. Innovative BSPs can now increase their value to subscribers by:

  • Secure the network against escalating attacks. Broadband service providers using Intelligent Access EDGE can easily protect their networks by isolating Layer 2 interfaces, thanks to updated ARM software. Enhanced capabilities prevent unauthorized network traffic from flowing between subscriber-facing network interfaces and potentially attacking the network.
  • Eliminate network congestion to free up more bandwidth for subscriber services. The new ARm software eliminates the possibility of a network system being overwhelmed by continuous multicast or broadcast traffic. Preventing this “broadcast storm” of data packets eliminates network congestion, so more bandwidth is available for fast delivery of subscriber services.
  • Accelerating security implementation by leveraging Calix network consulting services. Broadband service providers using Network consulting services have found they can plan and deploy networks up to 75 percent faster than traditional deployment. Calix network consultants work closely with engineering teams to quickly and securely deploy ARm software throughout the network without compromising the security of the existing network.

“As a small fiber ISP, we are always looking for ways to be competitive and provide a unique product for our customers,” said Robbie Wright, CEO of Hyak in Florence, Oregon. “Calix Intelligent EDGE Access enables Hyak to securely deploy our network all the way to the subscriber premises. And when combined with ProtectIQ And experienceIQwe can offer a complete security suite, for ourselves and our customers, which gives us an edge over the competition.”

To ensure engineering teams are up to date with the latest innovations from Calix, including Intelligent Access EDGE, Calix Solutions Academy offers solutions training that speeds time to knowledge and proficiency in Calix on-premises, cloud, and access solutions. Selected learning plans include professional certification options to promote proficiency on Calix platforms.

“Security starts on the network, but it doesn’t end there,” said Michel Langlois, chief technology officer at Calix. “Cybercrime is now a major business risk across all industries, especially for companies managing critical infrastructure such as broadband access networks. Calix offers the world’s only comprehensive security solution against network attacks. New ARm capabilities in Intelligent Access EDGE strengthen network security against current and emerging threats. Broadband service providers can confidently offer powerful managed home protection services like ProtectIQ to level up the protection of your subscribers. As guardians against malware, ransomware and more, BSPs with Secure Intelligent Access EDGE provide undeniable value to their communities.”
