TDS Telecom Deploys Calix C7

TDS Telecom, the seventh largest independent U.S. telco, has deployed the Calix C7 multiservice access platform (MSAP) to deliver FTTP and high-speed copper services to business and residential subscribers. Already widely deployed within TDS Metrocom, the Calix C7 will now allow TDS Telecom to support the full range of emerging access media -- FTTP, ADSL2+, and Gigabit Ethernet -- while continuing to support legacy telco services such as POTS, specials, DS1, and DS3.

TDS has deployed the Calix C7 in CLEC applications to provide Fast Ethernet, DS1, and DS3 services to businesses and communications-intensive residential customers in five states.

The Calix C7 offers 200 Gbps of backplane capacity, 480 fiber or copper interfaces, and full support for IP-based voice, data, and video services into an extremely compact, fully redundant, rear-access configuration. http://www.calix.com
