  • Calix

SAN JOSE, CA –  Calix announced newly enhanced Broadband Performance Testing Service, which is already helping WesTel Systems establish and maintain its CAF performance testing framework. This managed service from Calix provides WesTel with access to experts who can help them understand reporting requirements and address any compliance gaps as they prepare for the January 2020 FCC deadline. The Calix Managed Services team provides reports and guidance that help WesTel proactively manage broadband performance across their entire network. The Calix team also works to ensure that WesTel stays up to date with the latest FCC requirements moving forward.

The testing framework is critical for rural communications service providers (CSPs) who receive CAF funding, as the penalty for non-compliance can be as high as 25 percent of monthly support payments. WesTel’s partnership with Calix provides them access to the tools, processes, and insights necessary to establish its framework and ensure its ongoing testing practices meet the required standards. More importantly, they can now establish and maintain compliance without dedicating their own resources.

Components of the service include: ​​

  • Testing framework set-up using Calix Support Cloud​ testing to a GigaSpire
  • Regular testing framework pre-tests, reporting, and proactive performance analysis​
  • Ongoing support for regulatory compliance​ reporting

WesTel has provided communications services to rural communities in western Iowa and eastern Nebraska for more than a century. As a family owned, regional CSP, WesTel provides triple play services to residential and business subscribers. The WesTel team is proud of the services they deliver to their community. Thanks to the managed service from Calix, WesTel can be confident that they are delivering the performance they promise to each of their subscribers.
