Calix announced that Samsung’s SmartThings, the global leader in smart home automation, will join the Revenue EDGE ecosystem.

This new partnership represents a tremendous new opportunity for communications service providers (CSPs) to create phenomenal connected experiences in their subscribers’ homes. Through this partnership, Calix will deliver new applications on the Revenue EDGE, offering CSPs the ability to manage connectivity to more than 1500 certified devices from more than 120 partners around the world.

This unique, groundbreaking service leverages the world’s ultimate carrier-class Wi-Fi and IoT system, the GigaSpire, to deliver an unparalleled experience that is supported through an integrated mobile app and fully managed by the CSP with Calix Support Cloud.

With the addition of SmartThings to the Revenue EDGE ecosystem, CSPs will be in the ideal position to manage the experience and delight their subscribers while monetizing the added value, says Calix.
