Calix 3Q revenue tops $112M as company preps for shift to SDN and NFV

Unified access provider Calix saw its revenues rise in the third quarter to $112.3 million, up 6.2 percent from the same quarter in 2014. In addition, the company said it was preparing for its customers to shift to software-defined networking and network function virtualization by launching a new AXOS Linux-based network operating system and software application platform.

The company said that its AXOS platform was built from the ground up and is made up of modular, reusable software components that can run on a lot of different hardware without modification. The company also said this flexible platform eliminates service disruptions and automatically recovers from faults to prevent problems.

Earlier this week the company demonstrated AXOS running on its platforms. Calix said that AXOS is supported on the Calix E5-520, E5-308, and E5-306 MEF CE 2.0-certified systems. In addition, AXOS support will extend to other E-Series systems in the future.

In other third quarter metrics, Calix executives said that the company's net income for the third quarter was $8.3 million compared to a net income of $4.6 million in third quarter 2014.

Company CFO William Atkins said Calix repurchased $7.7 million in common stock in the third quarter via the company's previously announced $40 million stock buyback authorization.
