ATLANTA -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced the introduction of the 725GE optical network terminal (ONT), an enhancement to North America's most widely deployed family of RFOG-capable ONTs. The 725GE is built on the latest version of the RF over glass (RFOG) Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) standard, and includes a second Gigabit Ethernet (GE) port, which is ideal for smart grid applications. This ONT is the latest addition to the industry's most extensive ONT portfolio, and adds a fifth ONT to the Calix family of RF return ONTs. In addition to the 725GE, Calix offers the 725GX single family unit, two versions of the 763GX multiple dwelling unit (MDU) ONT and the 767GX for business services. Calix RFOG ONTs are now deployed in over 100 communications service provider networks across North America.

"As our television offerings continued to grow and became more interactive, it was clear that we needed an ONT that could support RF return," said William S. Helmly, president and COO of Home Telephone. "With the Calix RF return ONTs, we have been able to deliver the very latest in television services with interactive features, video on demand and DVR services. Now, with the addition of the 725GE ONT, we have a much more flexible option to provide video solutions that support both RF and IPTV, allow more flexible home networking and are ready for 10G PON overlay in the future."
