2010 FTTH Conference & Expo, PETALUMA, USA: Calix Inc. has announced the availability of three major expansions to its fiber access solutions, which bring industry-leading port density, increased flexibility, and new residential and business solutions to the Calix Unified Access portfolio:
Higher Density: The new GE-24 line card for the E7 Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP) brings industry-leading 24-port gigabit Ethernet (GE) port density and increased deployment flexibility to this widely adopted, modular platform.
Expanded Ethernet Services Support: The expansion of residential Active Ethernet (AE) and business point-to-point gigabit Ethernet (GE) support across all 700GE and 760GX optical network terminals (ONTs) augments existing gigabit passive optical network (GPON) support on all ONTs and adds pseudowire emulation edge-to-edge 3 (PWE3) T1/E1 circuit emulation.
New Indoor ONT: The 716GE-I ONT, the first indoor ONT designed by Calix, supports all of our valued features, including the ability to auto-detect GPON and Active Ethernet, full line rate GE support, voice activated remote ONT activation (RONTA), and a wide temperature range for enhanced deployment flexibility.
With more density, expanded AE and point-to-point GE services support, and more options added to the industry’s broadest ONT portfolio, Calix continues to enhance the fiber access portfolio deployed by more US communications service providers than any other vendor, and provide its customers with the tools to move “Fiber Forward” in their networks.
