LAS VEGAS -- Calix Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced major expansions to its Unified Access portfolio that bring industry-leading VDSL2 density and deployment flexibility to communications service providers, allowing them to greatly increase their competitiveness and extend the life of their copper networks. Today’s announcements include:

  • Two new Ethernet eXtensible Architecture (EXA) Powered VDSL2 lines cards for the E7-2 Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP), featuring industry-leading density and flexibility – up to 96 VDSL2 combo ports or 48 overlay ports and support for bonding and vectoring, two 10 gigabit Ethernet (10GE) ports, and two ports capable of GE or 2.5 gigabits per second (Gbps) service delivery – in a two card slot, one rack unit (1RU), modular chassis-based form factor. To see a demonstration of the E7-2’s vectoring capabilities, visit the Calix website.

  • A new VDSL2 combo card for the Calix B-Series Ethernet Service Access Nodes (ESANs), featuring 48 VDSL combo ports with bonding support and ADSL2+ fallback, as well as four 10 GE ports for optimal uplink capacity in a 1RU card.

With this addition, the Calix Unified Access portfolio now supports what we believe to be the widest array of advanced DSL solutions in the market – from small fixed form factor solutions to large high density chassis, and a variety of modular cabinet retrofits and sealed nodal solutions in between. With a comprehensive portfolio of systems well suited for virtually any deployment scenario, bonding and ADSL fallback standard across all VDSL2 solutions on the B-, C-, and E-Series platforms and nodes, and a price point that clearly justifies its deployment instead of existing ADSL options, Calix VDSL2 solutions have become a “universal” DSL alternative for service providers, offering a superior mix of performance, flexibility, and value.

“Our latest VDSL2 innovations, with extraordinarily high density and support for vectoring and bonding, offer what we believe to be the pinnacle of widely deployable DSL advancements,” said Kevin Pope, senior vice president of product development at Calix. “The Calix Unified Access portfolio now provides a wide variety of VDSL2 options that can deliver speeds in excess of 100 Mbps over existing copper plant. By leveraging VDSL2 solutions across the B6, C7, or E7 today, service providers can greatly enhance their broadband service offerings quickly and cost-effectively, and leverage these same platforms if required in the future to deliver advanced fiber access services.”
