3 Rivers Leverages Calix Professional Services

  • Calix

SAN JOSE, CA — 3 Rivers Communications has engaged Calix Deployment Enablement Services, accelerating their network build outs and improving resource efficiencies by 50 percent. Previously, the Montana-based communications service provider (CSP) estimated it had lost several hundred technician hours. By leveraging the automation tools, best practices, and quality reviews of the services, 3 Rivers has started to dramatically reduce the inefficiencies tied to access systems deployments. These improvements in deployment productivity have accelerated their aggressive fiber-to-the-home build out projects.

Originally founded as a rural telephone cooperative, Fairfield, Montana-based 3 Rivers Communications is dedicated to improving the quality of life in rural communities with fast, reliable broadband services. 3 Rivers is now increasing its efficiency, saving on labor and installation costs and enabling existing implementation resources to take on more projects. Part of this effort is evaluating an expansion of its existing Active Ethernet network with AXOS and the new Gigabit Ethernet line card for the E7-2 Intelligent Modular System. AXOS provides a common operational, management, and provisioning model that enables CSPs to abstract services while still benefiting from the point-to-point connections of Active Ethernet.

Deployment Enablement Services are comprised of Project Playbooks; the MobilePRO app, which provides step-by-step guidance and automated, electronic documentation sharing; and quality assurance assistance for rapid, remote reviews of project quality. Together, they help CSPs reduce overall deployment intervals, enabling them to complete more network transformation projects while ensuring buildout consistency and quality.
