Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) says it has released a new version of Flow Analyzer, the first application in its Compass suite of network and service management and analysis software applications. The cloud-based Flow Analyzer 2.0 is designed to offer communications service providers a subscriber-focused view into the data usage on their networks through a standards-based interface that seamlessly interoperates with common service provider billing systems.

Flow Analyzer 2.0 enables service providers to see subscriber network use at an application level, without looking into packets or specific content, Calix says. This visibility enables service providers to gain insights into subscriber usage patterns and create new revenue-generating services based on those patterns.

"Here in rural North Dakota, we have provided all of our customers with a state-of-the-art, fiber-to-the- premises (FTTP) network," said Jeff T. Wilson, general manager at Dickey Rural Networks in Ellendale, ND. "Now that we have completed our fiber network build, it is crucial for our business to leverage the power of fiber to deliver unique services to our customers. With the Calix Flow Analyzer and the visibility it provides into our network, we will be able to tailor our service packages to provide the right services to the right customers -- improving their service experience while maintaining their privacy and potentially innovating and expanding our service offerings."

"Service provider business models are undergoing a significant transformation as these companies look to provide more differentiated services for their subscribers and gain new revenues," added Miguel Alonso, Calix vice president of software products. "With the cloud-based model of Flow Analyzer 2.0, service providers can take advantage of this subscriber-focused data with minimal investment. Since launching Compass one year ago, we have already worked with over 60 customers in North America and the Caribbean to utilize this powerful tool to provide a better subscriber experience and accelerate their business model transformation."
