Take a hold of the growing Wi-Fi 6E market

Wi-Fi 6E is designed to provide subscribers with uninterrupted connectivity and reduced latency, thanks to the addition of the 6 GHz frequency.


The disruptive impact of ​ Wi-Fi 6E​

This podcast, hosted by Mark Vena from SmartTech Research, discusses the challenges, benefits, and opportunities that Wi-Fi 6E represents for both subscribers and service providers.​


Ken Johnson, CEO of WWest, on the importance of Wi-Fi 6E​

“We want to offer the best possible service to our customers and 6E is the key to our future. With more available channels, less contention, and the ability to serve even the latest consumer and business devices, anything else is half measures.”​

Wi-Fi expands into the 6 GHz spectrum

The introduction of additional, unlicensed spectrum (using the 6 GHz band) means faster, more reliable connections for the next generation of connected devices.This whitepaper provides more details on this development.

Key Wi-Fi 6E stats​

Wi-Fi 6E is the only way to get access to the dedicated bandwidth, less interference, and better performance that your subscribers need to power their cutting-edge devices and bandwidth-intensive applications.


The power of the platform

Reduce integration times

All GigaSpire BLAST systems are powered by the Calix Innovation Experience Platform. This container-based platform allows you to quickly change and adapt your services to embrace new technologies.​


“We have heard horror stories from other service providers taking months and—in some cases—years to provision and deploy new systems. However, the end-to-end Revenue EDGE solution has allowed us to move faster. Since deploying the original GigaSpire systems, we have seen our churn and service calls decrease considerably, and now with the new BLAST u6, we are getting to market in a matter of hours.”

—Josh Wehe, director of network operations for Jade Communications
