The Philippines’ SKY Cable Selects Calix AXOS Platform
Calix, Inc. has announced that SKY Cable Corporation, the largest cable operator in the Philippines, will leverage end-to-end solutions from Calix to drive an expansive network transformation to fiber. With plans to serve the greater metropolitan areas of Manila and Rizal, as well as the regions of Cavite and Laguna, SKY Cable has selected the AXOS E3-2 Intelligent PON Node to transition from its traditional cable plant to an agile, always on, software defined network. Through the assistance of Calix Channel Partner Twoway Communications (ACI Communications), SKY Cable will also deploy AXOS DPx, the industry’s first virtualised DOCSIS connector, and Calix Wi-Fi enabled GigaHubs at subscribers’ homes and businesses.
“Starting as the first operator to bring cable television to the Philippines in 1990 and with many additional service introductions since then, our mission at SKY Cable has always centered on utilising cutting-edge technology to deliver the best services to our subscribers,” said Solito G. Mapolon, vice president of network engineering for SKY Cable. “As we partner with Calix to move to an FTTH infrastructure and lay the foundation for the virtualised networks of the future, that tradition continues. With Calix AXOS solutions at the heart of our network, we will be able to roll out new services faster than ever before and deliver our subscribers a quality of experience like no other.”
Purpose-built for the unique needs of cable operators, Calix AXOS software defined PON leaps beyond a simple fiber deep architecture to a full, agile FTTH solution. AXOS E3-2 Intelligent PON Nodes provide SKY Cable with extraordinary deployment flexibility, including the ability to be mounted virtually anywhere to deliver services to subscribers in accelerated timeframes. Additionally, SKY Cable’s fiber network will be built end-to-end on Calix AXOS, the world’s only SDA, to deliver always-on capabilities, eliminate the need for maintenance windows and provide a simple, fast, and cost-effective way to pivot to a software defined network tomorrow with no impact to workflows and operations.
