LAS VEGAS – October 29, 2018 – Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today, from the main stage at ConneXions 2018, launched the Calix GigaSpire™ smart home system powered by EXOS™, the Experience Operating System.

By seizing the initiative in the smart home, CSPs can elevate their revenues by capturing subscriber spend while delivering an unmatched subscriber experience.

With the launch of the GigaSpire, CSPs now have a smart home system that will give them the upper hand in the battle for the smart home and the means to deliver an unmatched subscriber experience.
“The Calix GigaSpire smart home systems include all of the advanced features and functionality service providers need to respond to changing subscriber demands,” said Shane Eleniak, SVP of Platforms for Calix. “The unprecedented combination of Wi-Fi 6 and universal IoT connectivity with voice services built-in—all powered by EXOS—allows service providers to elevate both their brand and the subscriber experience. The ability to add new subscriber services without complex deployments, make this far and away the best smart home solution on the market. The fact that it’s only available to service providers will allow them to elevate their position in the subscribers’ lives and deliver a solution that is future-proof. Instead of a capital expense, their smart home systems will become a strategic weapon and a platform for growth.”
