Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) says it has closed its previously announced acquisition of Ericsson's (NASDAQ: ERIC) fiber access assets. The global reseller agreement between the two companies that is part of the deal is now in place as well.

Calix announced last August that it would buy Ericsson’s FTTHGPON products, and that Ericsson would then sell the full Calix line to its customers. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"We would like to welcome our new fiber access customers from around the globe to the Calix family," said Carl Russo, Calix president and CEO. "The EDA1500 GPON solution expands what we believe to be the industry's most advanced fiber access solutions portfolio, and we look forward to working closely with our new customers and through our preferred partnership with Ericsson to bring Calix broadband access innovation to communications service providers worldwide."
