By Mandira Srivastava
Calix (News - Alert) is pleased to announce that it has recently signed its 100th client. The company announced that it has attained the 100 Iowa customer milestone with the selection of the Calix Unified Access portfolio by Danville Mutual Telephone Company.
Calix is serving the needs of communications service providers throughout the state and enabling the delivery of advanced broadband services to its residents and businesses. The company offers communications services and advanced broadband services to its residents and businesses. The company has been a critical partner for its Iowa-based customers over the past decade as they have transformed their networks from primarily ATM and copper-based networks built to deliver voice and basic data services.
Starting with the deployment of the Calix C7 Multiservice Access Platform in 2001, the company has traced the tremendous success with the deployment of thousands of platforms spanning the entire Calix Unified Access portfolio.
Calix has remained committed to its strong Independent Operating Company (IOC) customer base in Iowa, as well as it’s 1100 customers globally.
Jerry Melick, president and GM of Liberty Communications in West Liberty, Iowa said in a statement, “Liberty Communications selected the Calix C7 back in 2001, as we began to roll out fiber in our network. With that selection, we became the second Calix customer in the company's history and it's first in Iowa. As our network has transformed into a primarily fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) architecture, we have also added Calix E-Series solutions to our product mix. Throughout this 11-year partnership with Calix, their team has always had a vision for both their success as a company, as well as for our success as a service provider, looking beyond their hardware to support our business and help us reach our goals.”
The Calix Unified Access portfolio has evolved to support a wide array of new technologies and services while still providing personal service and support through the company's intimate customer engagement model.
