SAN JOSE, CA—December 7, 2022—Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced that it was named 2022 “Company of the Year (Public)” by Light Reading, a foremost resource for the global communications, networking, and services industry. The 2022 Leading Lights “Company of the Year (Public)” Award honors publicly listed companies that stand out from competitors, constantly innovate, make investors proud, and create employee happiness. This award caps a landmark year for Calix as it furthers its mission to enable even the most remote broadband service providers (BSPs) to bring value to their communities for years to come.

Innovative technology companies must have a strong company culture, an understanding of what their customers need, and a clear view of the opportunities and challenges ahead.
