Calix Supplies FTTP/ADSL2+ for Quebec CLEC

Calix's network access equipment has been selected by Téléphone Guèvremont, a Quebec-based ILEC, and by Maskatel and Téléphone Drummond, CLEC affiliates of Téléphone Guèvremont. The project will utilize Calix C7 multiservice access platforms (MSAPs) to extend new fiber transport facilities to Drummondville, Quebec, overbuilding the current operator. From there, the Calix C7 will deliver voice, Internet access, and eventually IPTV services over short 1.5 Km loops using ADSL2+ and VDSL2 technology. Greenfield locations will be built out using 2.4 Gbps GPON fiber to the premises (FTTP) facilities. Financial terms were not disclosed.
