PETALUMA, Calif. -- Calix today announced that it has shipped platform capacity supporting over one million ultra-broadband subscriber terminations to more than 120 US Incumbent Local Exchange Carriers (ILECs). Each of the twenty universal service slots in the compact, packet-based Calix C7 ultra-broadband loop carrier (UBLC) supports up to 24 FTTP or DSL subscriber terminations. With over 2,500 Calix C7 platforms and 400,000 active ports in service, this deployment footprint represents capacity for over one million subscriber terminations.

    Typical of forward-looking service providers that have deployed the Calix C7 in scale is Louisiana-based EATEL with over 100,000 business and residential customers. "The Calix C7 platform fits easily into our network infrastructure and speeds the rate at which we can turn up broadband subscribers and advanced, packet-based services," said Peter Rodriguez, manager of outside plant and transmission engineering at EATEL. "It also affords us the flexibility to respond to uncertain customer demand when and where it occurs."

    "The rate of deployment of the Calix C7 platform is impressive," stated Yankee Group Broadband Access Director Matt Davis. "It definitely speaks to the importance of the access sector in general, and to the need for flexible, broadband solutions that can scale to deliver high bandwidth applications."
