WISPs see opportunity from rooftops to mountain tops

Nothing stands in the way of determined, progressive WISPs that strive to deliver broadband to stranded subscribers. Not even stubborn geography. When no one else can, WISPs step up to deliver for their communities, their neighbors. Whether you're building a fiber network or enhancing your existing fixed wireless subscribers' experience, your subscribers trust you. Calix helps you keep your subscribers and their devices connected. You can trust us.

Fixed Wireless Access

Fiber Access

Managed Wi-Fi

Why it's never been more important

Managed Wi-Fi lets you provide subscribers with everything they need to enjoy the best possible experience. And it reduces support costs for service providers, while generating additional revenue. ​​It’s a win-win.​


What is Managed Wi-Fi?​

Managed Wi-Fi is a premium service offered by a growing number of leading WISPs.​

While every WISP offers basic internet connectivity, managed Wi-Fi takes things to the next level. As its name suggests, managed Wi-Fi means that you actively manage all aspects of your subscriber’s Wi-Fi experience, ensuring they enjoy the fastest speeds, the best performance, and Wi-Fi coverage that extends throughout their homes. While most WISPs are charging a monthly fee for their managed Wi-Fi, others are offering it for free and yet still getting a financial benefit by reducing support costs.


What are the benefits for WISPs?

  • Go beyond being a connectivity provider and offer your subscribers real value in the form of a better online experience.
  • As the smart home continues to evolve, position yourself at the center of it.
  • Be instrumental in providing users with an outstanding online experience.
  • Address your subscribers’ technical challenges as the smart home becomes more complex.
  • Generate new revenue streams with monthly managed Wi-Fi packages.
  • Rein in support costs, which are being driven higher by subscriber Wi-Fi issues.
  • Reduce subscriber churn.
