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.

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.
