PETALUMA, Calif. -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced the Ethernet eXtensible Architecture (EXA) Powered Calix C7 Multiservice Access Platform (MSAP) now supports migration to native IPv6 with the platform's latest software release. North America's most widely deployed multiservice access platform and a key component of the Calix Unified Access portfolio, the C7 continues to raise the industry bar with a market-leading solution that prepares the access network for this transition with dual stack support for both IPv4 addresses and IPv6 addresses. As service providers begin this migration, a simple software upgrade will enable support for IPv6 without requiring additional capital expenditures or costly forklift upgrades.

"Since the birth of the MSAP category in 2005 through present day, the Calix C7 has been the market leader across North America and the Caribbean, with tens of thousands of platforms deployed representing over $1 billion in service provider investment," said Kevin Pope, senior vice president of product development at Calix. "With our latest C7 software release, every one of these platforms can be updated to support IPv6 addresses, as well as existing IPv4 addresses. From the newest C7 deployments with 10GE transport, line rate GPON, and VDSL2 to the very first C7s with SONET and ADSL, every C7 can be upgraded to a dual stack IPv4/IPv6 access network."
