SAN JOSE, CA – October 20, 2021 – Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced that Chariton Valley is the recipient of the 2021 Innovations in Network Operations award. Calix presented the honor at Calix ConneXions 2021 in Las Vegas. This award recognizes a broadband service provider (BSP) that is achieving breakthrough simplification of network operations to reduce operations and customer support costs and grow profitability.

To build on these impressive results, Chariton Valley is embracing the newest cloud offering, Calix Operations Cloud (Operations Cloud) which integrates network data into Calix Cloud so BSPs can gain unprecedented visibility into subscriber behavior and automate service provisioning.
A Calix customer since 2011, the Missouri-based Chariton Valley has had a long-term focus on simplifying network operations. They’re using the following Calix offerings to achieve their goals.
- Reduce overall alarms by 98.81 percent and slash truck rolls nearly 40 percent. Using GigaSpire® BLAST systems, Calix Support Cloud (Support Cloud), and new Operations Cloud, the cooperative is leveraging data from the access network to the subscriber edge to evaluate and improve network performance.
- Reduce subscriber turnup time 80 percent. To accelerate turnups, Chariton Valley deployed the AXOS E7-2 Intelligent Modular System and GP1100X GigaPoint.®
