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.”
