Southwest Minnesota Broadband Services selects Calix E7 for regional Broadband Stimulus project
Broadband Stimulus award winner Southwest Minnesota Broadband Services (SMBS) has chosen the EXA Powered Calix E7 Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP) and 700GE family of optical network terminals (ONTs) from Calix Inc. to bring advanced broadband services to eight rural communities across southwest Minnesota.Modeled after the fiber to the premises (FTTP) network serving the adjacent community of Windom, Minn., the initiative will leverage components of the Windomnet network infrastructure to enable ultra-high-speed Internet services of up to a full gigabit per second (Gbps), as well as voice and advanced cable television services. The upgraded network will touch more than 3,300 residences and nearly 350 businesses and anchor institutions. The $12.7 million Stimulus award consists of a $6.35 million grant and a $6.35 million loan, which includes plant engineering, materials, labor, and other costs, such as access equipment.“The cities of SMBS have a long history of proactive infrastructure investment to keep pace with their more urban counterparts, and we all recognize that broadband access will the key infrastructure that keeps us globally competitive in the twenty-first century,” says Keith Stubbe, SMBS chairman and mayor of member community Round Lake. “With the advice and expertise of Dan Olsen at Windomnet, John Schultz at U-reka Broadband, and the expertise of Calix, we believe we have the right resources in place to bring the deserving residents and businesses of our eight communities the network they deserve, and by implementing one of the most advanced networks in the nation, position southwest Minnesota to be globally competitive.”SMBS is a consortium of cities and will own and operate the fiber access infrastructure and broadband network serving the eight rural Minnesota communities of Jackson, Lakefield, Round Lake, Bingham Lake, Brewster, Wilder, Heron Lake, and Okabena. The network will consist of a 125-mile fiber ring that will connect these communities and serve more than 7300 residents.SMBS will be leveraging gigabit passive optical network (GPON), Active Ethernet (AE), and 10 gigabit Ethernet (10GE) technologies delivered via the Calix E7 ESAP and the 700GE family of ONTs."The eight rural communities that constitute the SMBS service area personify the spirit of self-reliance that Minnesota is known for," explains John Colvin, vice president of field operations at Calix. "They are taking control of their own futures and stimulating their own economic development. We congratulate the citizens of southwestern Minnesota for winning an award that has the potential to transform the region into one of the most connected in the nation, and we look forward to helping the communities served by SMBS reap the full benefits of a world-class fiber access network infrastructure."
Zhone: FTTX deployments up more than 4X since March 2010
Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZHNE) says that deployments of its MXK multi-service access node (MSAN) have grown from approximately 320 system deployments in 25 countries in March 2010 to more than 1,350 deployments in over 40 countries currently. The traction the MXK has attained since its unveiling slightly less than two years ago has significantly increased Zhone’s penetration of the GPON and Active Ethernet FTTX market, the company asserts.Zhone says it sees momentum in the fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) market in the Middle East, Central and Latin America (CALA), Europe, and North America. Recent Q4 2010 and Q1 2011 MXK deployments include:Telecom TZ: First GPON win for Zhone in Russia, which the company hopes will drive further regional expansion.Hardy Telecom: Recipient of $34 million broadband stimulus award.Rochester Telephone Co.: FTTX deployment in Indiana that further expanded Zhone’s U.S., and specifically, Midwest broadband footprint.Quebec-based Colba.Net Telecom: Triple-play services delivered via ADSL2+ and Ethernet.Florida-based Myakka Communications: Advanced fiber access offered to subscribers in rural areas of Sarasota and Manatee Counties for the first time via $7.8 million broadband stimulus project.Guyana-based Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company: Nationwide deployment of MXK in Latin American country“With our burgeoning IP Zhone brand and the newly launched Zhone FiberHome and Zhone FiberCell product suites, operators will not only be able to sustain the ROI of their fiber investments long-term, but they’ll be able to maximize their existing infrastructure – such as the MXK, the Zhone Management System (ZMS) and Zhone EZ Touch Provisioning system, to expand the reach of their network and services in response to current needs,” explained Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer at Zhone. “For example, they can now leverage the MXKs they’ve deployed for their FTTX and triple-play services in support of their 3G and 4G mobile backhaul needs as well.”“The GPON FTTX market is seen as the future of broadband networks and shipments more than doubled in 2010. Zhone Technologies outstripped the overall market and recorded the highest rate of growth of any of the major GPON vendors,” according to James Heath, director of research at Dittberner Associates. “This is a validation of Zhone’s overall customer strategy, which is based on its MXK MSAN platform.”
BTOP recipient NFBA opts for Calix B6
Calix, Inc. (NYSE:CALX) says that North Florida Broadband Authority (NFBA) will use part of the $39.3 million in broadband stimulus funds, including a $30.1 million grant and in-kind matches of $9.2 million, it received from the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) to buy Calix B6 Ethernet Service Access Nodes (ESANs) for a network that will serve 14 rural Florida counties and several cities in the region.The open 10-Gigabit Ethernet network, implemented and managed by network integrator and systems engineer Rapid Systems, will aggregate wireless traffic from approximately 102 wireless sites and interconnect more than 300 community anchor institutions in the region. An estimated 150,000 households and 28,400 businesses and public institutions will have access to the network.“We are extremely excited about this initiative, which will bring a powerful broadband network infrastructure to the citizens, businesses, and anchor institutions of northern Florida,” said Dustin Jurman, CEO of Rapid Systems. “This build-out has the potential to be the cornerstone of the region’s future, driving both economic development and the quality of life of local residents.” “The NFBA is a public agency building a carrier class network that will be the foundation for the future of our region,” said Chris Thurow, chairman of the NFBA Operations Committee and Bradford County director of information technology. “We needed partners that we could count on to deliver the price, reliability, and performance that would be key to successful implementation. Rapid Systems and Calix have delivered, providing us with the advanced technology and expertise we need bring this ambitious project to reality.” The Calix B6 ESANs that will be deployed throughout this network are the most recent additions to the Calix Unified Access portfolio. The B6 ESANs will be used to aggregate wireless traffic generated using microwave ring technology. Each B6 node will offer wireline network reliability enabled through self-healing Ethernet rings with sub-50-msec recovery.
