Calix selected by TUA for next generation fiber
Calix announced that municipal utility broadband pioneer Tullahoma Utilities Authority, or TUA, is moving its fiber future forward with Calix. Since introducing LightTUBe fiber services in 2008, TUA has evolved its voice, video, and data offerings over the last eight years to include TV Everywhere service, numerous broadband speed upgrades, and most recently a gigabit services offering. TUA found itself in a position where it needed to rapidly adapt its network to be ready for the next leap in its transformation and was looking for the right partner. After significant testing and trials, TUA chose to partner with the "muni" broadband leader Calix, the company with unrivalled expertise in this space stemming from more than 55 municipal service provider customers across North America. Leveraging the Calix E7-2 Modular Access Systems, GigaCenters, and 700GE optical network terminals at each premises, and Compass cloud for subscriber experience management, TUA will take the broadband experience of its subscribers to new heights as it prepares its network for a graceful transition to 10 gigabit PON technology.
