MoCA WELCOMES CALIX AS NEWEST MEMBER
San Ramon, Calif., February 24, 2009 -Calix, the largest telecom equipment supplier focused solely on access solutions for broadband service delivery, has joined MoCA � as an Associate member. The company's Unified Access Infrastructure provides service providers with a wide range of innovative access platforms that enable the delivery of any service over any media at the lowest cost.
Calix is the leading provider of fiber to the premises (FTTP) solutions to North American service providers. The company is also the worldwide leader in gigabit passive optical network (GPON) optical network terminal (ONT) revenue, according to a recent report by the Dell'Oro Group.
"Service providers deploying FTTP have found that a major cost, as well as opportunity, for service differentiation lies in how they choose to address home network wiring," said Geoff Burke, Calix marketing director. "By joining forces with MoCA, Calix can provide its customers with a standards-based, comprehensive, and reliable whole home solution using pre- existing coaxial cabling."
“Calix' stellar reputation among service providers reinforces MoCA's long held position as interoperable with all forms of network access including fiber, copper or coax, DSL, Ethernet or GPON," said Charles Cerino, president of MoCA. "Their advanced video solutions fit hand in glove with MoCA as we are essentially IP over coax.”
