PETALUMA, Calif. -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced that Broadband Stimulus awardee Vermont Telephone Company (VTel) will deploy the Calix 700GE family of optical network terminals (ONTs) to deliver advanced broadband services to more than 15,000 customers throughout its service area in southern Vermont. Last year, VTel was awarded federal American Reinvestment and Recovery Act funding for its Wireless Open World (WOW) netw ork to extend fiber to every home and business in the VTel service area and roll out 4G/LTE high speed, wireless broadband services throughout Vermont.

The VTel WOW fiber-to-the-home network will leverage point-to-point gigabit Ethernet technologies to deliver voice over IP (VOIP) and ultra-high-speed residential and business data services. Powered by the 700GE family of ONTs, VTel will provide broadband services capable of up to one gigabit per second (Gbps) to each customer premise, making VTEL's network among the most advanced in the world.

"Calix is a leading company enabling broadband access, and we are excited to have them helping us deliver broadband, voice, and television services to rural Vermonters with technology that is far superior to that available in most urban environments," said Justin Robinson, president of VTel.
