Vattenfall Eurofiber to deploy 10G PON with Calix in Berlin, Germany

May 9, 2022
Calix value added retailer ANEDIS GmbH AR will work with Vattenfall to facilitate local service integration on the deployment, which is expected to run through 2026.

Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) says it will aid Vattenfall Eurofiber GmbH in the deployment of a 10G PON based open access network in Berlin. The fiber broadband technology provider will supply elements of its Intelligent Access EDGE and Network Innovation Platform (AXOS) portfolios for the rollout, which targets more than 500,000 households and businesses in the city.

Vattenfall will deploy the Calix E7-2 Intelligent Modular System, powered by the Calix Network Innovation Platform, as the main hardware engine for the open access network. Calix estimates that use of its Intelligent Access EDGE and Network Innovation Platform will save Vattenfall up to 80% in opex and capex versus a more conventional approach. Calix value added retailer ANEDIS GmbH AR will work with Vattenfall to facilitate local service integration on the deployment, which is expected to run through 2026.

“Efficiency and simplicity matter a great deal to us,” said Arian de Korte, COO of Vattenfall. “They translate into substantially reduced opex and capex year-over-year. That is absolutely critical for the design, roll out, and management of open-access networks. These advantages are the main reasons why we chose the Calix Intelligent Access EDGE. We’re deeply committed to building a future-proof fiber network that will provide fast and reliable connectivity to half a million residences and businesses throughout Berlin. We look forward to working with Calix as we expand our presence in Germany with this landmark 10G fiber network.”
