Hawaiian Telcom Chooses Calix for FTTx Deployment

  • VDSL2
PETALUMA, CAHawaiian Telcom, the incumbent provider in Hawaii, is deploying fiber deeper into its network and using VDSL2 technology to deliver high-speed data, voice and IPTV video services.

For this broadband transformation initiative, Hawaiian Telcom plans to use the Calix E3-12C Serviceable Below Grade (SBG) sealed Ethernet Service Access Node (ESAN) and E7-2 Ethernet Service Access Platform (ESAP), which leverage VDSL2, gigabit Ethernet and 10GE technologies. As a sealed unit, the E3-12C can be fully immersed in salt water for extended periods of time - an important consideration in an area subject to tidal and rainwater flooding. These units support 12 VDSL2/POTS combo ports with ADSL fallback and are capable of bonding.

“The flexibility and capacity of Calix E-Series systems are a great match for our emerging network requirements,” says Kurt Hoffman, chief operating officer at Hawaiian Telcom. “As we continue to introduce new and advanced broadband services like IPTV and hosted VoIP, it is critical that we balance the needs of the future with bringing these exciting services to our customers quickly and efficiently. Calix brings deep experience in advanced services deployment and a portfolio of industry-leading solutions to our broadband initiatives, positioning us well to aggressively implement our service delivery plans.”
