SEPTEMBER 13, 2007 — La Compagnie de Telephone Warwick and its subsidiary IVIC Telecom (Warwick, Québec, Canada) selected Calix's C7 multi-service access platform (MSAP) and Calix management system (CMS) to implement a range of new phone, DSL, Internet, and video services.

SEPTEMBER 13, 2007 — La Compagnie de Telephone Warwick and its subsidiary IVIC Telecom (Warwick, Québec, Canada) selected Calix's C7 multi-service access platform (MSAP) and Calix management system (CMS) to implement a range of new phone, DSL, Internet, and video services.

Telephone Warwick will use the FTTx network for local telephone services, DSL, high-speed Internet, and private and business line services. IVIC Telecom will use the C7 platform for POTS, voice over IP (VoIP), and other phone services, along with high-speed data services to residential and business customers. Video offerings are planned for the future.

The companies' networks are linked across a high-speed fiber backbone network from Calix C7 platforms. Both are able to extend fiber to the customer premises (fiber to the home/business — FTTH/B) using Calix's standards-based 2.5-Gbit/sec. passive optical network (GPON) line cards.

The infrastructure upgrade was developed in late 2006 at Telephone Warwick, which chose Calix platforms to improve stability and reliability, and implement better services and support. Subsidiary IVIC required a new network for high-bandwidth IP-based sevices, says Luc Couture, GM, Telephone Warwick. The provider cited flexibility with Calix equipment, hosting a spectrum of fiber- and copper-based IP services, as well as the five-year warrantee program.
