Calix raises the bar for network security with new features in its Intelligent Access Platform that eliminates unauthorized traffic across the entire access network

At a time when the need to protect networks and subscribers from cyberattacks has never been greater, the latest advancements in the Calix Intelligent Access EDGE platform add significant security enhancements to the only broadband solution that covers the entire subscriber network.

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 19, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today launched updates to the Intelligent Access EDGE platform that make the entire subscriber network more secure than ever. Broadband service providers (BSPs) need to ensure their networks protect subscribers against current and emerging threats. A secure broadband access network is the cornerstone of value-added security services that protect subscribers and keep their data secure. Intelligent Access EDGE’s Advanced Routing Module (ARm) software now identifies, isolates and blocks unauthorized traffic on residential gateways so that BSPs of any size can secure their access network.

By combining Intelligent Access EDGE with managed home network security services available through the Revenue EDGE platform, such as ProtectIQ™, Calix secures the only end-to-end solution for BSPs that addresses the entire subscriber network. Innovative BSPs can now increase their value to subscribers by:

  • Securing the network against growing attacks. Broadband service providers using Intelligent Access EDGE can easily secure their networks by isolating Layer 2 interfaces, thanks to updated ARm software. The upgraded 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 removes network congestion, so more bandwidth is available for fast delivery of subscriber services.

  • Accelerate security deployment by leveraging Calix Network consulting services. Broadband service providers using network consulting services have found they can plan and deploy networks up to 75% faster than traditional deployment. Calix network consultants work closely with engineering teams to deploy ARm software quickly and securely across the network without compromising existing network security.

“As a small fiber ISP, we are always looking for ways to be competitive and provide a unique product to our customers,” said Robbie Wright, CEO of Hyak in Florence, Oregon. “Calix’s Intelligent Access EDGE allows Hyak to deploy our network securely to the subscriber premises. And when combined with ProtectIQ and experienceIQwe are able to offer a comprehensive security suite, for ourselves and our customers, giving us a leg up on the competition.”

To ensure engineering teams are up to date with the latest Calix innovations, including Intelligent Access EDGE, Calix Solutions Academy provides solution training that accelerates time to learn and master premises, cloud and access solutions from Calix. Organized learning plans include professional certification options to promote mastery of Calix platforms.

“Security starts at the network level, but it doesn’t stop there,” said Michel Langlois, CTO of 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 end-to-end security solution against network attacks. New ARm features in Intelligent Access EDGE enhance security on the network against current and emerging threats. Broadband service providers can confidently deliver powerful managed home protection services such asIQ improve the protection of their subscribers.
