PETALUMA, Calif. -- Calix, the largest telecom solution supplier focused solely on access, today announced a substantial broadening of its presence in Canada with its selection by Telephone Guevremont, a Quebec-based ILEC, and by Maskatel and Telephone Drummond, CLEC affiliates of Telephone Guevremont. The project will utilize Calix C7 multiservice access platforms (MSAPs) to extend new fiber transport facilities to Drummondville, Quebec, overbuilding the current operator. From there, the Calix C7 will deliver voice, high-speed internet access, and eventually IPTV services over short 1.5 Km loops using ADSL2+ and VDSL2 technology. Greenfield locations will be built out using 2.4 Gbps gigabit passive optical network (GPON) fiber to the premises (FTTP) facilities.

According to Maskatel president Donald Dupuis, "Calix offers us tremendous flexibility in the upgrade of our access network--we are able to employ the same solutions for fiber and copper, for inside and outside plant, and for the full variety of business and residential services we offer now and plan for in the future."

Claude Beauregard, president of Telephone Drummond, added, "It is vitally important that our new access infrastructure redefine broadband, operating at speeds tens of megabits per second higher than conventional, first-generation broadband. With ADSL2+, VDSL2, GPON, and Gigabit Ethernet, Calix gives us the bandwidth headroom we need to support demanding IP-based services such as IPTV and very high speed internet access."
