OVERBURY, U.K. -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE:CALX) today announced the residential and farming villages of Overbury and Conderton on the Overbury Estate in the picturesque Cotswolds region are now receiving some of the best broadband speeds available in the United Kingdom, thanks to an innovative community fibre access project enabled by the Calix E7-2 Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP). Capable of delivering ultra-fast broadband speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second (1 Gbps), the Overbury Estate network provides residents and businesses with access to a variety of advanced broadband services, from high-definition video content to bandwidth-intensive data and voice applications. Situated in the heart of rural England, between Bristol and Birmingham near Cheltenham, the Overbury Estate is primarily a farming community with a vibrant mix of residential and business locations and a busy community life. Although broadband had been available in the community for over 10 years via a number of solutions, the emerging need for more advanced broadband applications encouraged the estate to install a fibre broadband solution that would meet the needs of the community both today and well into the future. The new fibre infrastructure, operating over the Calix E7-2, provides ultra-fast advanced broadband services via fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) technology delivered to the residences and businesses of Overbury and Conderton, including farming and professional businesses and a wide range of local trades, crafts, and services established on the Estate. Community facilities are also set to benefit as the fibre network is rolled out to other local organizations, such as the village hall, church and school. Calix Networks Inc.

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.
