WORLDWIDE COMPUTER PRODUCTS NEWS-September 16, 2014-Calix's solutions bring Gigabit services to Russellville, Kentucky


Calix Inc (NYSE:CALX), a provider of a Unified Access portfolio of broadband communications access software, systems and services, announced on Monday that EPB SmartNet, a municipally owned fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) network in Russellville, Kentucky, has deployed the Calix E7-2 Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP) and 700GE family of optical network terminals (ONTs) for its new residential and business gigabit fibre network.

Financial details of this deployment were not available.

With the launch of this one gigabit per second (Gb/s) service on 1 September 2014, Russellville has reportedly become Kentucky's first Gigabit city. Leveraging gigabit passive optical network (GPON) technology, the gigabit service is now available to all of EPB SmartNet's residential and business broadband customers throughout the community.

EPB SmartNet, which serves over 4000 utility customers and over 1300 broadband customers, offers voice, video, and advanced high speed data services to the community of Russellville. Since its initial FTTP deployment in 2010, EPB SmartNet has relied on the Calix Unified Access portfolio to deliver all of its advanced broadband services, Calix said.

The company said EPB SmartNet was able to leverage existing Calix infrastructure to upgrade customers to gigabit speeds without having to replace any of its broadband access equipment.

According to Calix, with the addition of Kentucky, it is now supporting 43 gigabit networks in 24 different states.
