Vector Fibre partners with Calix

AUCKLAND, NZ, 9 March 2021 – Vector Fibre has announced a strategic partnership with Calix, a global provider of cloud and software platforms, systems and services that enable broadband service providers of all types and sizes to innovate and transform. The partnership will bring guaranteed bandwidth, symmetrical gigabit speeds and innovative services to the New Zealand market, expected to drive industry growth. The new services will be made available to Vector Fibre customers later this year.

The communication needs of service providers and businesses are evolving, as are the requirements for network growth and performance. As interest in innovative access services and IoT technology continues to grow, Retail Service Providers that are focused on expanding their service offerings will want to keep an eye on this partnership.

Mike Shirley, General Manager of Vector Fibre, says: “We anticipated the need from businesses for premium and reliable next generation fibre network services at cost-effective price points. We chose Calix because their focus on new network innovations, including an API first approach to their software and network, and their technology leadership, gives an edge over the competition. This will enable us to provide our customers with opportunities for new revenue streams as they meet the demands of their customers”

Vector Fibre is the first in New Zealand to roll out the Calix AXOS® E9-2 Intelligent Edge System across their network. The combination of the modular AXOS platform and an expandable chassis, deliver unmatched deployment flexibility by enabling both XGS-PON and NGPON2 services via a single card.

Michel Langlois, Chief Development Officer, Intelligent Access EDGE Products for Calix, says: “Calix partners with the most forward-thinking and innovative broadband service providers in the world, delivering bleeding edge 10G network technologies like XGS-PON and NG-PON2. We are pleased to be working with an innovative partner like Vector Fibre to deliver the next generation of fibre networks that will enable service providers to deliver the higher speeds and the advanced services subscribers demand.”
