In a statement, Calix said Comvergence was using its AXOS E5-16F G.fast Node inside multi-tenant unit (MTU) buildings and 801F GigaPoints at each premises to deliver symmetrical broadband speeds over copper at up to 300Mbps.
Calix said the capability to deliver a gigabit experience to each subscriber if required, existed. Comvergence was also using the Calix E7-2 Modular Access System for gigabit Ethernet backhaul over fibre.
The technology is being supplied to Comvergence by Calix's local elite partner, Optical Solutions Australia.
Installation for new customers was also much faster by leveraging SDN-optimised AXOS Activate software for end-to-end service turn-up.
"Calix AXOS G.fast solutions gave us a powerful one-two punch in Australia’s two largest cities – the ability to stand out as the company capable of deploying not only the fastest and most reliable business services over copper in the market, but to do so in the shortest time from order to service delivery,” said Brian Michael, director at Comvergence.
"Once live, Calix solutions have continued to allow us to distinguish our service with extraordinary always-on reliability and the ability to easily step-up to the increasing speeds demanded by our business customers.
"Given our success in Sydney and Melbourne, our next step is to pursue opportunities to extend the powerful Calix solutions in other opportunities nationally."
Joseph Haddad, vice-president of international sales at Calix, said: "Service providers are constantly looking for innovative new ways to provide differentiated, cost-effective, fastest-to-market, and reliable services to their business customers.
“Historically, businesses residing in copper-fed MTUs were experiencing a digital divide – left behind as their competitors made the leap to higher speed services and performance.
"No more, as Calix AXOS G.fast innovations have allowed service providers like Comvergence to revolutionise their markets by leveraging existing copper infrastructure and stand apart from their competitors in agility, speed, and service quality.”
