The widely-deployed AXOS E7-2 Modular Access System demonstrates rapid new service turn-up; Points to a future of faster time-to-revenue over a converged infrastructure with dramatically reduced costs MARSEILLE, France, Feb. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE:CALX), the world leader in Subscriber Driven Intelligent Access, today announced that NG-PON2 has made the leap from promising technology to business transforming reality with the world’s first NG-PON2 demonstration in a live network. New Zealand’s Northpower Fibre leveraged the same E7-2 Modular Access System that it is deploying throughout its network to deliver 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) speeds over multiple wavelengths to 812NG GigaHubs located in a business premises and residential home in Whangarei. This landmark achievement ushers in a new era for service providers, as they begin to fully leverage the true potential of fiber for both an unmatched subscriber experience as well as for business transformation. As Northpower Fibre begins in the future to deploy more widely NG-PON2 enabled systems armed with Calix AXOS, the world’s only true Software Defined Access (SDA) architecture, the company can begin to dramatically drive down its OPEX and CAPEX profile by further converging disparate business, residential, and backhaul services onto one simple-to-operate network. In time, NG-PON2 will enable Northpower Fibre to continue to truly differentiate itself in a growing Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) marketplace stimulated by the New Zealand government’s second phase of its UFB programme. A new video, showcasing this world first, can be viewed here. “New Zealand is undergoing a major broadband vitalization effort, and we see the emergence of NG-PON2 technology as a major enabler going forward,” said Darren Mason, CEO of Northpower Fibre. “As attention in the second phase of UFB shifts from the cities to bring fiber broadband to more rural areas, Northpower Fibre will be leading the way having committed to connect 12 new towns to fiber within the next four years. With Calix as our partner and the AXOS E7-2 supporting the deployment, we have been amazed by how quickly we had jaw-dropping speeds and services up and running. We’ve shown the world that NG-PON2 is real, and we are excited for all of the new efficiencies and opportunities NG-PON2 will bring to our future business.” NG-PON2 provides Northpower Fibre with new business efficiencies in their open access model. Multiple wavelengths on a single fiber can be divided up for use by different service providers, instead of each service provider requiring a separate PON. NG-PON2 enables the isolation of services between the providers, allowing one to make service updates and changes, with no impact on the other providers. In addition, with the AXOS “always on” capability, Northpower Fibre can make its own live upgrades without service disruption or impact to the multiple service providers utilizing their fiber infrastructure. “Calix has been the leader in PON technology from the beginning, starting more than a decade ago with the first GPON deployments, and now ushering in the new era of NG-PON2,” said Shane Eleniak, Calix vice president of product line leadership. “This is more than just a world first with a groundbreaking technology – it’s a demonstration of the power of AXOS, which allowed Calix to integrate advancements in NG-PON2 technology into our solutions well before anyone else. Northpower Fibre has the vision and desire to set the bar for the rest of the industry, paving the way for AXOS and SDA to bring true 10 gigabits per second multi-wavelength services over NG-PON2 to service providers around the world.” Visit Calix in Booth G20 at the FTTH Conference 2017 this week in Marseille, France to learn more about AXOS and see the full portfolio of industry-leading NG-PON2 solutions on display.

ASOCS Ltd., a pioneer in RAN virtualization, today unveiled its in-building virtual Radio Access Networks (vRAN) solution. The solution delivers on the promise of the Network Function Virtualization (NFV) initiative carried out by carriers around the globe aiming to virtualize network services currently being carried out by proprietary, dedicated hardware. Virtualizing baseband processing in the Radio Access Network (RAN) is one of the hardest elements to virtualize due to its real-time nature. ASOCS’ virtual base station (vBS) runs software performing real-time baseband processing on Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) servers using a cloud-architecture. This fully virtualized solution allows for dynamic and automated allocation of baseband resources based on actual data traffic, eliminating the need to over provision base stations to meet peak demand. The vBS is designed for networks at any scale, from nationwide outdoor networks to campus and in-building networks. Wireless users are consuming more data than ever before, which is straining the carrier networks. With over 80% of mobile usage happening indoors, more and more carriers are adding capacity inside buildings- at the edge of their network. Using base stations connected to Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), carriers are delivering enhanced services to their users where most data is being consumed. To address this need, ASOCS has integrated its vBS with DAS solutions creating an and end-to-end vRAN solution. “The value of bringing capacity into the enterprise in the form of a virtual Base Station is two-fold. First, being a cloud based on standard IT-servers, the solution looks and feels like any other IT cloud, and is simple to implement and manage. Second, it creates an open mobile edge cloud (OMEC) for carriers or enterprises to offer applications that either consume a lot of bandwidth, require low-latency performance, or can terminate locally without traveling back to the core network,” said Eran Bello, Chief Marketing Officer, ASOCS. “The pre-integrated ASOCS’s vRAN solution and cellular processing capabilities with HPE’s OpenNFV platform and IT telecommunications expertise enables communications service providers (CSPs) a fast transition to a multi-vendor NFV solution at their network edge, where a great deal of capacity is consumed,” said Werner Schaefer, vice president & general manager, NFV, HPE. ASOCS is demonstrating its vRAN solution at MWC2017 at stand 2E60, Hall 2 in the IMA Pavilion and at the HPE OpenNFV Partner Showcase at stand 3E11, Hall 3. ASOCS is a pioneer in virtual Radio Access Networks (vRAN) and a provider of fully virtualized, NFV-compatible virtual Base Station (vBS) solutions. Transitioning LTE baseband processing from proprietary, bundled hardware, to a software-rich application that runs on Commercial Off -The-Shelf (COTS) servers significantly improves spectrum efficiency, and enables Open Mobile Edge Clouds (OMEC) at any scale, from in-building and campus deployments to outdoor Macro networks.

Home > Press > 'Lossless' metamaterial could boost efficiency of lasers and other light-based devices Abstract: Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a material that could reduce signal losses in photonic devices. The advance has the potential to boost the efficiency of various light-based technologies including fiber optic communication systems, lasers and photovoltaics. The discovery addresses one of the biggest challenges in the field of photonics: minimizing loss of optical (light-based) signals in devices known as plasmonic metamaterials. Plasmonic metamaterials are materials engineered at the nanoscale to control light in unusual ways. They can be used to develop exotic devices ranging from invisibility cloaks to quantum computers. But a problem with metamaterials is that they typically contain metals that absorb energy from light and convert it into heat. As a result, part of the optical signal gets wasted, lowering the efficiency. In a recent study published in Nature Communications, a team of photonics researchers led by electrical engineering professor Shaya Fainman at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering demonstrated a way to make up for these losses by incorporating into the metamaterial something that emits light -- a semiconductor. "We're offsetting the loss introduced by the metal with gain from the semiconductor. This combination theoretically could result in zero net absorption of the signal -- a 'lossless' metamaterial," said Joseph Smalley, an electrical engineering postdoctoral scholar in Fainman's group and the first author of the study. In their experiments, the researchers shined light from an infrared laser onto the metamaterial. They found that depending on which way the light is polarized -- which plane or direction (up and down, side to side) all the light waves are set to vibrate -- the metamaterial either reflects or emits light. "This is the first material that behaves simultaneously as a metal and a semiconductor. If light is polarized one way, the metamaterial reflects light like a metal, and when light is polarized the other way, the metamaterial absorbs and emits light of a different 'color' like a semiconductor," Smalley said. Researchers created the new metamaterial by first growing a crystal of the semiconductor material, called indium gallium arsenide phosphide, on a substrate. They then used high-energy ions from plasma to etch narrow trenches into the semiconductor, creating 40-nanometer-wide rows of semiconductor spaced 40 nanometers apart. Finally, they filled the trenches with silver to create a pattern of alternating nano-sized stripes of semiconductor and silver. "This is a unique way to fabricate this kind of metamaterial," Smalley said. Nanostructures with different layers are often made by depositing each layer separately one on top of another, "like a stack of papers on a desk," Smalley explained. But the semiconductor material used in this study (indium gallium arsenide phosphide) can't just be grown on top of any substrate (like silver), otherwise it will have defects. "Rather than creating a stack of alternating layers, we figured out a way to arrange the materials side by side, like folders in a filing cabinet, keeping the semiconductor material defect-free." As a next step, the team plans to investigate how much this metamaterial and other versions of it could improve photonic applications that currently suffer from signal losses.

"A number of initiatives has been taken to reduce latency in the internet, and there are several causes of delays. What we have looked at specifically is something called "Bufferbloat" and how this creates latency, primarily in home networks. It is often in home networks that latency occurs, because the last-mile capacity to the home is lower than in the rest of the internet. This means there is a risk that the link becomes congested, which leads to queues being formed." The internet consists of a number of networks linked by routers, where data pass through to different parts of the Internet. A router can be compared to a road junction where data packets, like cars at a crossroads, form queues and are waved on according to predefined rules. It is perfectly natural that temporary queues are formed due to short-term variations in the traffic. What creates problems is when the queues fill up and stay that way for a longer time. Then traffic comes to a halt and the result is delays, so-called Bufferbloat. "The rules regulating how data is let through vary in different types of routers. You could say that there are different types of queueing systems, and we have studied how the flow of data across networks is influenced by these different systems." The "first come first served" principle (also called "first in – first out") is the simplest principle to use to regulate a queue, and is the most common one today. This principle means that the router lets through data packets in the order they arrive. But more advanced principles can give better performance, for example, the so-called fairness principle. This involves a queueing system that gives priority on the basis of a number of factors, and which mixes data flows from distinct sources, allowing the flows to proceed concurrently through the network instead of having to wait for each other. "What we have seen is that the traditional "first in – first out" principle is one of the factors causing latency, and that the fairness principle reduces latency considerably. With this "fairness queueing", the capacity between different users and applications is shared. We have developed an algorithm based on this principle that works well in WiFi networks, and which contains an automatic prioritisation of the small data packets that are important for a quick response, such as DNS lookups and game traffic." Together with researchers in the USA and Poland, Toke Høiland-Jørgensen has developed software that anyone can install in their home routers to reduce latency. "We have worked deliberately to make our research results available for all to use. Our algorithm, for instance, is included in software for home routers that anyone can install in their router to reduce latency in their home network."

PETALUMA, Calif., Feb. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE:CALX) today announced unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016. Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $131.8 million, an increase of 25.5% compared to $105.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2015. “We ended 2016 with record revenues for the fourth quarter as well as the full year 2016 which marks our fourth consecutive year of growth. We expect this growth to continue as service providers increasingly deploy transformative solutions from our software defined access portfolio,” said Carl Russo, Calix, Inc. President and CEO. “However, as we invested in our services offerings we experienced higher than expected costs in our turnkey network improvement projects, particularly as activity accelerated to meet project schedules, resulting in earnings coming in below our expectations,” added Russo. The GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $11.5 million, or $(0.23) per basic and fully diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $9.5 million, or $(0.19) per basic and fully diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2015. “We can see a finite period through the first half of 2017 during which these higher costs will continue to impact a part of our services business,” said William Atkins, Calix, Inc. Executive Vice President and CFO. “We also see strong revenue momentum and an array of opportunities with both existing and prospective customers heading into 2017. We will continue to focus resources on our growth initiatives including the software defined access portfolio while optimizing our cost structure, as planned, in the traditional systems and services segment,” added Atkins. The company’s non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $6.8 million, or $(0.14) per fully diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $1.7 million, or $(0.03) per fully diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2015. A reconciliation of our fourth quarter 2016 operating results from GAAP to non-GAAP is provided in this release. Calix is providing forward-looking estimates for Q1 2017 and full year 2017 results as follows: The company is projecting revenue growth of 10% or more relative to 2016 and projecting to achieve a lower net loss on a non-GAAP basis for the full year compared to 2016. The company estimates that GAAP EPS will be approximately $0.10 lower for Q1 2017 and approximately $0.34 lower for full year 2017 due to the inclusion of stock-based compensation and amortization of intangibles. A reconciliation of the GAAP to non-GAAP outlook is provided in this release. In conjunction with this announcement, Calix will host a conference call at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time (4:30 p.m. Eastern Time) today to discuss its fourth quarter 2016 financial results.

BARCELONA, 1. März 2017 /PRNewswire/ --  ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), ein bedeutender internationaler Anbieter von Telekommunikations-, Unternehmens- und Verbraucher-Technologielösungen für das mobile Internet, hat heute auf dem Mobile World Congress in Barcelona das branchenweit erste IP+Optical 5G Flexhaul vorgestellt, eine integrierte Fronthaul- und Backhaul-Lösung auf Grundlage der Internet Protocol (IP)+Optical-Technologie. Die Lösung macht sich die neue IP+Optical-Architektur zunutze und bietet vereinheitlichten Transport von 5G Fronthaul- und Backhaul-Diensten auf einem Gerät sowie supergroße Bandbreite, extrem niedrige Latenzzeiten und Software Defined Networking (SDN)-basiertes Traffic-Engineering. Mit ZTEs 5G Flexhaul-Lösung lassen sich die Gesamtbetriebskosten (TCO) um geschätzte 30 Prozent gegenüber herkömmlichen Lösungen reduzieren. 5G-Netze bieten, wie allgemein bekannt, eine beispiellose Nutzerfahrung in Bezug auf Bandbreite, Latenz und Anzahl der Verbindungen. Anders als 4G, wo nur ein Einzelszenario unterstützt wird, unterstützt 5G diverse Szenarien einschließlich enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC) und ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communications (uRLLC), und die Schlüsselindikatoren der verschiedenen Szenarien variieren erheblich. Traditionelle Netzwerke benötigen hier strukturelle Rekonfigurationen, Geräte-Upgrades und Performance-Verbesserungen. Der Aufbau eines effizienten und kostengünstigen Trägernetzes, das die Leistungsanforderungen von supergroßer Bandbreite, extrem niedrigen Übertragungsverzögerungen und Cloudification von zentralen Netzwerken und Radio Access Networks (RANs) im 5G-Zeitalter erfüllen kann, gestaltet sich für die globalen Betreiber zu einer enormen Herausforderung. ZTEs 5G Flexhaul-Lösung kombiniert Flex Ethernet mit der IP+Optical-Architektur und liefert damit einen supergroßen flexiblen Pipeline-Transport für 5G Fronthaul- und Backhaul-Dienste. 5G Flexhaul setzt IP+Optical-Synergien als End-to-End (E2E)-Anwendung um und bietet über SDN-Controller einheitliche Planung, Terminierung, Verwaltung und Wartung. Die IP+Optical integrierten Geräte kommen im Mass Access Layer zum Einsatz, um die Netzwerk-Erstellungskosten zu senken und Equipment-Platz zu sparen. Der Transport von supergroßen Bandbreiten wird durch Multiwellen-Anbindung zwischen benachbarten Knoten bewerkstelligt. Mit dem FlexE-Feature lassen sich darüber hinaus die Unterkanäle verschiedener Dienste flexibel isolieren, dies unterstützt eine optimale Weiterleitungsebene für 5G-Träger Network Slicing. Das ebenfalls auf dem MWC vorgestellte ZXCTN 6180H ist 5G-Transport-Equipment  für den vorkommerziellen Einsatz, hat eine Höhe von nur 3RU und kann bis zu 1T der Netzwerkkapazität eines Zugriffsrings unterstützen. 5G Flexhaul verfügt neben der supergroßen Pipeline-Transportkapazität über die Fähigkeit zum flexiblen Latenztransport. Das dem Fronthaul-Netzwerk über 5G Cloud Radio-Access Network (C-RAN) zugeordnete Latenzbudget liegt bei unter 100us. Die 5G Flexhaul-Lösung unterstützt auf der Weiterleitungsebene die Modi schnelle Weiterleitung und normale Weiterleitung, die entsprechend nach Service-Typ ausgewählt werden können. Der schnelle Forwarding-Modus wird für zeitabhängige Dienste verwendet, die Time Sensitive Network (TSN)-Technologie wird eingesetzt, um die Latenzvermittlungszeiten bei der Umschaltung zwischen den oberen und unteren Service-Knoten von 30 Mikrosekunden auf wenige Mikrosekunden zu reduzieren. Der Zwischenknoten nutzt die Optical Bypass-Technologie, um eine Latenzzeit von unter einer 1 Mikrosekunde zu erreichen. Dies erfüllt effektiv die 5G-Leistungsanforderungen hinsichtlich geringer Übertragungsverzögerungen und stellt eine leistungsfähige Garantie für neue Dienste und Netzwerkarchitekturen dar. Das zu 5G gehörende Cloudification Feature wird flexible, flächendeckende Verbindungen bringen. Die 5G Flexhaul-Lösung gründet sich auf SDN-basiertes Traffic-Engineering, und kann von daher effizient ubiquitäre Verbindungen aufbauen und den Traffic im Netzwerk über die vom Traffic-Monitor gesammelten Informationen dynamisch optimieren, um die Ressourcennutzung dem Gezeiteneffekt im Netzwerk entsprechend deutlich zu erhöhen. „ZTE setzt die kontinuierliche Innovation fort, um wettbewerbsfähige Lösungen und Produkte für globale Betreiber zu bieten. Die 5G-Technologie bringt eine Netzwerkrevolution mit sich, und ZTE agiert deshalb proaktiv und unterstützt die Anwendung und den Testbetrieb von 5G-Transporttechnologien. Wir haben Frühphasenforschung betrieben und Diskussionen mit einer Reihe von Betreibern hinsichtlich Kooperationen in der 5G Fronthaul- und Backhaul-Technologie geführt. 5G Flexhaul wird den globalen Betreibern sehr beim Aufbau von zukunftssicheren, flexiblen, kostengünstigen und integrierten 5G-Transportnetzwerken helfen", erklärte Herr Zhao Fuchuan, Chief Engineer bei ZTE 5G Transport Solution. ZTE ist Anbieter von fortschrittlichen Telekommunikationssystemen, mobilen Endgeräten und Technologielösungen der Enterprise-Klasse für Verbraucher, Carrier, Unternehmen und Kunden des öffentlichen Sektors. Die Bereiche Telekommunikations- und Informationstechnologie gehen zusehends ineinander über, und ZTE setzt sich im Rahmen seiner M-ICT-Strategie dafür ein, seinen Kunden hervorragende, integrierte und durchgängige Innovationen zu liefern, die Werthaltigkeit bieten. Die Produkte und Services von ZTE finden bei mehr als 500 Betreibern in über 160 Ländern rund um den Globus Absatz, seine Aktien werden an den Börsen von Hongkong und Shenzhen gehandelt (H Share Stock Code: 0763.HK / A Share Stock Code: 000063.SZ).
