PETALUMA, Calif. -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced that Grande Communications (Grande), a Texas-based broadband communications company and one of the nation's top 20 largest cable operators, has deployed the Calix E7-2 Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP), 700GE family of optical network terminals (ONTs), and its recently introduced Compass Open Link Cable software to deliver broadband speeds of one gigabit per second (Gbps) in West Austin, TX. Grande has led the cable industry in the delivery of gigabit services, introducing its "Power 1000" service in this highly competitive market in February of 2014.

"Demand for gigabit services is taking the nation by storm and our subscribers are demanding nothing less than a world-class broadband experience," said Matt Murphy, Grande Communications president. "To meet this demand, we were looking for a fast and efficient path to bring gigabit speeds to our subscribers while leveraging our existing DOCSIS provisioning systems. Calix has delivered for us by providing a powerful fiber access platform over GPON that has allowed us to become Austin's first gigabit services provider. And now, with Open Link Cable, Grande will have the ability to provision these advanced fiber services with our back office systems untouched."

The Calix E7-2 ESAP and 700GE family of ONTs deliver the flexibility and scalability necessary for Grande to efficiently deliver some of the nation's top broadband speeds, while Open Link Cable allows them to leverage their existing DOCSIS operational model. The Open Link Cable solution is based on concepts introduced by the CableLabs DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON (DPoE) specification and is designed to align with future DOCSIS Provisioning of GPON (DPoG) standards that are currently in development. While Open Link Cable integrates with most cable back office systems, Calix professional services can also perform custom integration for those cable operators with unique back office requirements.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
