Baldwin Telecom selects Calix E7 for GPON broadband stimulus project

DECEMBER 20, 2010 -- Baldwin Telecom, Inc. (BTI) has selected the Calix E7 Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP) from Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) for a project that will leverage gigabit passive optical network (GPON) technology to bring advanced fiber services -- including voice, video, and high speed data services -- to more than 1,500 unserved or underserved households, small businesses, and institutions in Troy, WI.

The project will use funds from the broadband stimulus program. Baldwin Telecom received more $9 million in funds, including $4.5 million in loans and another $4.5 million in grants through the Broadband Initiative Program (BIP) and the Rural Utilities Service (RUS), and an additional $121 thousand in private investment.

“For years, the town of Troy had been looking for ways to bring advanced broadband services to their community, and we are excited to now be bringing world class broadband services to its citizens,” said Larry Knegendorf, manager at Baldwin Telecom. ”As the first telco in the State of Wisconsin to deploy fiber access technology to its residential customers in 2002, we know what it takes to successfully roll out an advanced broadband infrastructure, and we also know the tremendous benefits it can bring to a community. In Calix, we have chosen a partner with more fiber access deployments than any other vendor into North America, and a portfolio of fiber access technologies that will give the citizens of Troy one of the most advanced broadband infrastructures in the nation.”

In addition to using the Calix E7, Baldwin Telecom will deploy Calix 725 ONTs, capable of delivering advanced interactive video services through integrated radio frequency over glass (RFOG) technology, voice services, as well as advanced data services to subscribers.
