Nortel and Calix Extend Marketing Alliance

Nortel and Calix announced a joint marketing agreement (JMA) that extends a strategic alliance put in place by the two companies three years ago. Under the agreement, the companies will continue working closely to help service providers deploy advanced packet-based broadband access infrastructure supporting Nortel's IP-based information, communication, and entertainment services.

Over the past three years, the strategic alliance has generated 26 customers and resulted in the deployment of over 2,300 Calix C7 multiservice access platforms (MSAPs) and over 400,000 physical interfaces.

The companies will continue to collaborate on a variety of marketing and sales activities. In addition to working together to promote emerging IP-based services, the companies will also leverage Calix Compatible, a solutions assurance program designed to ensure interoperability across multiple suppliers.
