Florida's FDN Communications Chooses Calix

FDN Communications, a 250,000-line CLEC based in Florida, has selected the Calix C7 multiservice access platform (MSAP) to help transform its network in the face of a changing regulatory environment and accelerating consumer expectations. FDN Communications will initially deploy the Calix C7 in its 170 central office collocations.

Founded in 1998, FDN Communications currently provides a full suite of voice and data services to over 70,000 business and residential customers and has more than 250,000 access lines. In addition, FDN provides web hosting, collocation, and application services throughout its operating footprint in the Southeast US.

Calix said that with UNE-P (unbundled network element--platform) availability and pricing being changed in line with FCC regulatory modifications, CLECs everywhere are looking for multiservice access platforms that maximize the range of services that can be delivered and provide greater network flexibility.
