SMITHSON VALLEY, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced that GVTC Communications has deployed the Calix E7-20 Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP) and 700GE family of optical network terminals (ONTs) for the GVTC GigaRegion fiber network in cities of Boerne, Bulverde, and Gonzales, Texas. Based on gigabit passive optical network (GPON) technology, this expansive fiber network will bring high-bandwidth data speeds of one gigabit per second (Gbps) via 2200 miles of fiber to 39,000 homes, business, and anchor institutions just north of San Antonio. GVTC will offer voice, video, and security monitoring, along with high-speed data services throughout the GVTC GigaRegion beginning in September of 2014.
GVTC is a communications leader in south Texas, bringing fiber to the region ten years ago. Once again innovating with the GVTC GigaRegion, GVTC has embarked on a unique public/private partnership with the municipalities of Boerne, Bulverde, and Gonzales, which are some of the fastest growing communities in the state. In this partnership, GVTC and the three towns will work together on a two-year comprehensive marketing plan to promote the business and lifestyle benefits of GVTC's GigaRegion.
"Calix technology is the foundation for being able to create the GVTC GigaRegion, which our municipal partners will use to fulfill their vision for managed growth," GVTC President and CEO, Ritchie Sorrells, said. "With the untapped possibilities of a gigabit Internet connection, made possible through the Calix platform, the GVTC GigaRegion will be a center of ingenuity and entrepreneurialism."
With the announcement of the GVTC GigaRegion, Calix has now enabled 30 gigabit services deployments around the world. As a leader in gigabit networks, Calix has developed a resource center for service providers, utilities, and municipalities to assist with the delivery of these advanced services and provide examples of best practices from around the globe.
