PETALUMA, Calif. -- Calix today announced that its fiber to the premises (FTTP) solutions, including the Calix 700 family of GPON Optical Network Terminals (ONTs), are deployed across the state of Texas allowing service providers to deliver advanced information, communication, and entertainment services to residential and business customers alike. From the suburban landscape outside of San Antonio, to the rural prairies of the Texas Panhandle, Texas service providers are finding success with innovative Calix FTTP solutions. Both GVTC Communications, based in the San Antonio metropolitan area, and XIT Rural Telephone Cooperative Inc., in the Northwest Texas Panhandle, have deployed the Calix gigabit passive optical network (GPON) solutions in their service areas.

According to industry research firm Dell’Oro Group, Calix optical line terminals (OLTs) and ONTs are the world’s most widely deployed GPON solutions. The company has commercially deployed hundreds of thousands of OLT subscriber terminations and ONTs. Calix FTTP solutions combine field-proven reliability with unrivalled flexibility for service providers making the investment in FTTP networks. According to the March issue of Broadband Properties Magazine, Calix ONTs are deployed in 15 of the 22 FTTP deployments in Texas. These deployments are in both rural to suburban settings and deliver a variety of services such as IPTV, RF video, gigabit Ethernet data, and business services.

“As our customer base continues to grow and service-provider FTTP rollouts expand, we are seeing customers push the envelope in deploying GPON in a variety of unique applications and settings,” said Dave Russell, solutions marketing director at Calix. “Both GVTC and XIT are prime examples of how easily the Calix fiber solutions can adapt to drastically different service provider needs across Texas.”
