Calix Complements E7 Platforms With New Family of Indoor ONTs 
T-Series Integration With E7 ESAPs Brings New Options to Industry's
Broadest Fibre Access Portfolio 
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwired) -- 10/17/13 --  Calix,
Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced the integration of the Calix
T-Series family of GPON optical network terminals (ONTs) with its E7
Ethernet Service Access Platforms (ESAPs), bringing a variety of new
indoor options to the industry's broadest fibre access portfolio.
Already widely deployed at major service providers throughout the
world as a complement to the BLM 1500 GPON Access Terminal (GAT), the
T-Series ONT family dramatically expands the Home Gateway Unit (HGU)
solutions available for global ETSI E7 deployments. This integration
also allows service providers to seamlessly complement their existing
BLM 1500 GAT deployments with flexible E7 ESAP solutions, including
the modular E7-2 and multi-terabit E7-20, while maintaining their
current operational models built around T-Series ONTs.  
"As we consider expanding our fibre deployment beyond the more urban
areas of Whangarei, we are in need of a complementary platform to our
BLM," says Steve Macmillan, Public Affairs Manager of Northpower New
Zealand. "The modularity and small form factor of the E7-2 is a
perfect fit for our need, especially as we have already
operationalized around the T-Series ONT family. With the ability of
the T-Series to interoperate with both BLM and E7-2 platform, we have
the optimal portfolio of options at our disposal as we expand our
services across the Northland region of New Zealand." 
The T-Series family of ONTs offers a wide range of GPON-enabled
services for residential environments, from basic high-speed data
services to advanced VOIP and IPTV. The combination of the T-Series
with the P-Series premises portfolio gives service providers the
flexibility to match form with function in virtually any residential,
business, or mixed-use deployment scenario -- optimizing CAPEX and
OPEX efficiency while introducing new potential revenue streams --
and deliver those services over one Unified Access network.  
The T-Series HGU ONTs combine single family unit (SFU) functionality
with advanced residential gateway features, delivering a high
performance home network experience. The T-Series ONTs are equipped
with a number of valuable features, including: 


 
--  A range of models from a single Gigabit ONT to HGU models with
    multiple gigabit Ethernet (GE) ports and POTS ports supporting VOIP
--  Support for both IPTV and RF video deployments
--  T073G and T077G models provide a standards-based, single-band Wi-Fi
    interface, operating in the "b," "g," or "n" mode
--  GE port configuration options such as VLAN per port or for bridged
    port functionality, which delivers a proven solution for retail fibre
    providers as well as open access providers
--  Industry standards adherence, with the solution set designed to meet
    Broadband Forum TR-247 for GPON ONT interoperability

  
Andy Lockhart, senior vice president of international sales and
marketing at Calix, said: "This is an important advance in our
portfolio for the international market. Calix is developing
customer-centric solutions that provide the widest range of options
for the varied deployment scenarios we find in different parts of the
world. Our aim is to help our customers to drive revenue generation
and cut their CAPEX and OPEX costs wherever possible. The T-Series
family integration with our highly successful E7 platforms is a key
contribution to this strategy."  
Calix will be exhibiting and showcasing its new E7 at Broadband World
Forum in Booth B14.
