The Calix C7 meets the needs of any FTTP network deployment. The Calix C7—and the complete line of P-Series optical network terminals (ONTs)—are fully FSAN and ITU G.984 compliant. All Calix devices, including the OLT, are hardened to perform in harsh outside plant environments. Calix has an industry leading OLT port density that allows a single shelf to support up to 5,120 subscribers using a 64:1 split ratio.
Service providers deploying the Calix C7 FTTP solution can provide subscribers with up to a GE of data bandwidth, along with digital video delivered over either RF or IPTV. For voice services, the Calix C7 provides the option to provision SIP, H.248, GR303, or a mix of all three technologies. As with all Calix C7 advanced services, GPON can be provisioned in the same shelf as other service interfaces.

Extended Reach GPON Expands Serving Areas Four Times
Calix provides a standards-based Extended Reach GPON solution that expands the serving radius of GPON from 20 km to 40 km — a fourfold increase in serving area. Calix Extended Reach GPON makes use of a compact, pluggable Extended Reach optical interface module (OIM) inserted into any one of the four available ports on existing Calix C7 GPON optical line terminal (OLT) cards. There's no need to install and power up additional remote cabinets and equipment to reach farther into the network, saving tens of thousands of dollars in potential turn-up costs just to reach remote users beyond the traditional 20 km limit. Offering a clear deployment advantage for all service providers, Calix Extended Reach GPON is especially useful for service providers that operate in rural, low-density areas.
