Cox Business, currently the fourth largest provider of business Ethernet services in the United States, is deploying the Calix E7 Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP) and a variety of Calix 700GX optical network terminals (ONTs) to deliver advanced business services to small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Currently deployed in several of the Cox markets across the country, the E7 and 700GX ONTs, along with a Calix cabinet package called the Fiber Access Node, provide Cox Business with the flexibility to deliver commercial-grade, fiber-based Ethernet services over both point-to-point Ethernet and passive optical network (PON) technologies.

The Calix E7 is an all-Ethernet, environmentally hardened, high-capacity fiber access platform condensed into a highly flexible, small form factor. One rack unit (RU) high, the E7 can be deployed with or without an erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) in a Calix ODC-100 cabinet to create a “Fiber Access Node,” supporting up to 256 subscribers over PON and point-to-point Ethernet to business locations like office parks and high density commercial areas. Accessing 200 Gbps of available bandwidth capacity, each E7 line card supports a variety of technologies – point-to-point Ethernet, PON  and 10 gigabit Ethernet (10GE) transport rings – and is well-suited to a wide range of business needs.??

The Calix E7 and the 700GX family of ONTs – as well as a Calix Fiber Access Node based on the ODC-100 cabinet – are on display at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in New Orleans.
