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.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
