Company Profile and Business Description for Calix

Calix, Inc. (Calix), incorporated on August 17, 1999, is a provider of broadband communications access systems and software for fiber- and copper-based network architectures that enable communications service providers (CSPs), to transform their networks and connect to their residential and business subscribers. The Company enables CSPs to provide a range of services, from basic voice and data to advanced broadband services, over legacy and next-generation access networks. The Company develops and sells carrier-class hardware and cloud products that are designed to enhance and transform CSP access networks. The Calix portfolio consists of three core systems and/or nodes: E-Series access systems and nodes (E-Series systems and nodes), B6 access nodes (B-Series nodes), and the C7 multiservice, multiprotocol access system (C-Series system). These systems and nodes are complemented by the P-Series optical network terminals (ONTs) and residential gateways, the GigaFamily of GigaCenters, GigaHubs, and GigaPoints, the Calix Management System (CMS), OpenLink Cable software and Compass Cloud family of software-as-a-service (SaaS) products.

The Calix portfolio allows CSPs to evolve their networks and service delivery capabilities at a pace that balances their financial, competitive and technological needs. As of December 31, 2016, over 23 million ports of the Calix portfolio have been deployed across the world. The Calix portfolio allows for a range of subscriber services to be provisioned and delivered over a single unified network. These systems can deliver basic voice and data, advanced broadband services, including high-speed Internet, Internet protocol television (IPTV), mobile broadband, high-definition video and online gaming, as well as integrated transport within its portfolio, all of which can be monitored and managed by Compass Cloud. The Calix portfolio is designed to facilitate the evolution of CSP access networks to fiber- and Ethernet-based network architectures. The Calix portfolio enables CSPs to utilize legacy access network infrastructure during their migration towards fiber- and Ethernet-based access networks.

The Calix portfolio enables CSPs to better manage the evolution of their access networks by transitioning the delivery of basic voice and data services to broadband services. Its Access eXtensible Operating System (AXOS) platform is an architecture built to leverage the best of data center software design and network virtualization in the challenging environment and variability of the access network. It develops, sells and supports carrier-class hardware and cloud software products. It offers a portfolio of access systems and cloud software that is deployed in the portion of the network that extends from the data center, central office, or similar facilities to a subscriber's premises. Its network-based products include its E-Series systems and nodes, which provide service delivery of Internet protocol (IP)-based services, as well as its B-Series nodes, which provides multiservice over Ethernet through distributed nodes, and its C-Series system, which is its multiservice, multiprotocol access system. Its premises-based offerings consist of its P-Series ONTs and residential gateways as well as its GigaFamily of premises service delivery centers, hubs, and points which are deployed in combination with its E-Series, B-Series, and C-Series systems and nodes to enable its customers to connect to their subscribers across a set of form factors, protocols and functionality requirements.

The Company develops its products and an extensive offering of service interfaces to ensure CSPs can connect to their subscribers to enable the delivery of basic voice and data or broadband services over fiber- and copper-based network architectures regardless of protocol. Its C-Series system also enables CSPs to integrate IP and legacy protocols, as well as fiber- and copper-based connectivity, in a single chassis. Its access systems are interoperable and are designed to be deployed and managed together as a single, unified access network. Its CMS is server-based network management software capable of overseeing and managing multiple E-Series, B-Series and C-Series networks. Compass Cloud products are offered using a SaaS model based on a low monthly service fee and no upfront hardware or licensing fees. The products are hosted in a cloud-based data center, alleviating CSPs' need to deploy, operate, or maintain physical hardware for Compass services, and are accessed through its Command Center subscriber interface. Access Analyze is a Compass software product that enables CSPs to point their CMS server at the cloud and correlate their access data across Compass Cloud products.

The Company's CMS server-based network management software system and Activate cloud-based element management for AXOS systems enable CSPs to remotely manage their access networks and scale bandwidth capacity to support advanced broadband services and video. It offers CSPs a graphical user interface-based management system for provisioning and troubleshooting service, and the capacity for bulk provisioning and reporting for thousands of elements simultaneously. E-Series access systems and access nodes consist of chassis-based systems, as well as fixed form factor nodes that are designed to support an array of advanced IP-based services offered by CSPs. Its AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System is a non-blocking, high-density NG-PON2 services modular chassis that enables service providers to move to a converged services network. Its other E-Series nodes include the fixed form factor E5-48, E5-48C, E5-16F, E5-300, and E5-500 node families, as well as the E3-12C, E3-48, E3-48C, and E3-16F sealed access nodes.

The Company's P-Series ONTs and residential gateways can auto-detect the bandwidth of the network and enable CSPs to change line rates and features without truck rolls or hardware replacements. Its portfolio of ONTs, residential gateways, and GigaFamily centers, hubs, and points is designed to support advanced broadband services, such as IPTV, radio frequency (RF) video, business services and mobile backhaul. Its B-Series access nodes consist of chassis-based nodes that are designed to support an array of advanced IP-based services offered by CSPs. Its B-Series nodes are designed to be carrier-class and enable CSPs to implement advanced Ethernet transport and aggregation, as well as voice, data and video services over both fiber- and copper-based network architectures. Its C7 multiservice access system is designed to support an array of basic voice and data services offered by CSPs while also supporting packet-based services.
