Petit Jean Fiber grows its value by building a world-class fiber-to-the-home network that will deliver unrivaled managed Wi-Fi 6 experiences to rural communities and schools with Calix Intelligent Access EDGE and Revenue EDGE

SAN JOSE, CA – June 24, 2021 – Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced that Petit Jean Electric Cooperative (Petit Jean) has selected the complete suite of Calix solutions and cloud-based services to cost-effectively build and deploy a world-class fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network. After securing the third-highest amount of Rural Development Opportunity Fund (RDOF) dollars in Arkansas, Petit Jean will deliver the latest managed Wi-Fi 6 services to underserved members and students across its rural service territory through its newly formed, wholly owned fiber subsidiary, Petit Jean Fiber. As a newcomer to the broadband space, Petit Jean will leverage the Network Innovation Platform (AXOS®) and the Intelligent Access EDGE to build an XGS-PON FTTH network, simplifying operations and enabling the cooperative to turn up symmetrical gigabit broadband services quickly and cost-effectively. As sections of the fiber network are completed, Petit Jean will use the Revenue EDGE to excite students and members alike with best-in-class experiences at superior speeds, with the full support of Calix Services to accelerate deployment and adoption. Petit Jean is growing its value and differentiating itself from established service providers with the goal of bringing accessible, affordable, and reliable high-speed internet to all 14,000 members by 2027.

Last year, with the overwhelming support of more than 90 percent of its members, Petit Jean decided to participate in the RDOF auction to secure funds for its FTTH initiative. The new network and services will bring life-changing connectivity to its communities and open the door to seamless online learning, telemedicine, remote work, and other opportunities. Currently, only 11 percent of Arkansans have access to fiber broadband connectivity, according to BroadbandNow. This disparity is felt keenly within Petit Jean’s rural, nine-county service area which includes Searcy County, whose school districts were severely hampered last year by an internet connectivity gap that worsened the plight of already-struggling students.

“Some of the seniors in our school districts were unable to graduate this year due to the lack of reliable high-speed internet services in their areas,” said Michael Kirkland, general manager of Petit Jean. “When it became clear that RDOF could make this financially feasible for us, we knew we had to jump in with both feet and from the very first meeting, Calix understood exactly what we needed—a future-proof fiber broadband network that was simple and cost-effective to operate, and capable of delivering exciting services at blazing fast speeds to our members. Calix is considered the gold standard in this industry, and we are confident our investment will pay dividends for Petit Jean, helping us grow our value by providing much-needed services to rural Arkansans.”

Once fully deployed, Petit Jean will benefit from:

  • Lowered operating costs. The new, 2,500-mile FTTH buildout will be powered by the Network Innovation Platform (AXOS) to deliver Always On broadband connectivity. The versatility of the platform enables Petit Jean to embrace an everyPON strategy—in this case, GPON, and then ultimately XGS-PON using the E7-2 Intelligent Modular System for easy and efficient scalability. Calix customers have reduced their operating costs by as much as 50 percent as a result of the platform’s modular architecture.
  • Efficient customer support. Petit Jean will tap the subscriber insights of Calix Support Cloud that are seamlessly integrated with its own branded version of the CommandIQ® mobile app, enabling member-led, self-service capabilities, unprecedented in-home network visibility, and operational efficiency. These have resulted in industry-leading benchmarks such as 60 percent truck-roll reductions for other customers.  
  • Elevated member experiences. Petit Jean will build a world-class marketing engine, first by using the data in Calix Marketing Cloud to identify and reach each member with targeted service offerings. Then, the CommandIQ mobile app will give the broadband service provider (BSP) the ability to establish a dedicated communications channel with members, and easily deliver EDGE Suites, which feature the fully managed security and parental control capabilities that delight subscribers, with additional exciting services to come.

Petit Jean will rely on the expertise of Calix Services to help accelerate network and service planning, deployment, and optimization—specifically Professional ServicesPremier Customer Success Services, and Premier Support Services. Field technicians and the customer support team will also undergo training via EDGE Enablement. Collectively, these will help Petit Jean accelerate its ability to simplify its operations, excite members, and grow its value.

“Petit Jean is a shining example of a true greenfield provider that has invested wisely in building the first, and the last, network it will ever need,” said Michael Weening, president and chief operating officer of Calix. “With the Intelligent Access EDGE, Petit Jean can rapidly deploy new services on a network that is always on, with premium managed Wi-Fi 6 experiences delivered via the Revenue EDGE that will excite members. The ease of service provisioning and delivery with our cloud-based offerings will smooth the transition into this new broadband business, helping Petit Jean simplify operations and differentiate itself from the incumbents while growing its value as it writes the next chapter of its impressive 80-year history.”

Rural service provider in Nova Scotia dramatically increases revenue while exciting subscribers and supporting unprecedented population growth in rural municipality by rapidly delivering unmatched premium fiber and Wi-Fi 6 experiences enabled by Calix Intelligent Access EDGE and Revenue EDGE

SAN JOSE, CA – June 17, 2021 – Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced that Canadian broadband service provider (BSP) Mainland Telecom has experienced a 66 percent surge in net-new subscribers in just three months since expanding the availability of its unrivaled managed Wi-Fi services to residents in the rural municipality of Clare, Nova Scotia, with Revenue EDGE. These premium services, which are delivered with lightning speed via the Wi-Fi 6 certified GigaSpire® BLAST u6 systems and the optional, intelligent mesh extensions of the GigaSpire BLAST u4m, are helping increase the appeal of the community in the midst of a booming real estate market as a viable option to live and work from remotely. Mainland Telecom’s branded CommandIQ® mobile app, HomeHub, coupled with unprecedented in-home network visibility enabled by the seamless integration with Calix Support Cloud, excites subscribers with the ability to create, manage, and enhance their Wi-Fi 6 experience over a brand-new fiber broadband network powered by Intelligent Access EDGE. Residents of the remote community in western Nova Scotia—whose choices previously ranged from outdated technologies such as DSL and substandard options like wireless and satellite—can now connect reliably to expand their employment, education, entertainment, and economic opportunities.

Mainland Telecom began offering residents in Clare two tiers of premium Wi-Fi 6 services earlier this year following a successful pilot to roll out the services over its new, 172-mile Calix-based fiber broadband network. Subscribers also have the option to add, via the HomeHub mobile app, EDGE Suites applications ExperienceIQ and ProtectIQ™ to elevate their experience further. With ExperienceIQ, subscribers can control their family’s online experience and optimize their home network, devices, and applications as well as prioritizing applications for Wi-Fi bandwidth via My Priorities. Mainland-branded ProtectIQ offers advanced security protection from threats such as malware, ransomware, and other types of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks. Home network security is particularly important for the community’s elderly population, who are among those at most risk from online threats. As Mainland Telecom expands its fiber footprint, it expects increased adoption of these applications as more permanent work-from-home opportunities continue to attract people from other parts of the country to relocate to rural Nova Scotia.

“Over the last year, I have fielded many calls from Canadians who are eager to live in rural Nova Scotia to either care for aging parents or who simply wish to make a lifestyle change as their work-from-home arrangements became more permanent, but their moves have been contingent on the availability of reliable, high-speed internet access,” said Nick MacArthur, operations officer for Mainland Telecom. “Working with Calix to address this urgent broadband gap enables us to deliver world-class Wi-Fi services on par with those offered in the big cities over a simplified and future-proof network with the capacity to scale rapidly as demand grows. Residents of Clare have eagerly adopted our managed Wi-Fi offerings and we anticipate that other municipalities will welcome our much-needed services as we continue to expand. With Calix, we now have the infrastructure and services to excite new and existing subscribers and drive growth in our rural communities.”

Mainland Telecom selected Calix last year following its successful qualification as a technology partner for the Internet Nova Scotia initiative spearheaded by Develop Nova Scotia, an organization responsible for providing high-speed Internet to more than 95 percent of Nova Scotia homes and businesses. The Canadian BSP chose the Intelligent Access EDGE to simplify the operation of its new fiber broadband network, harnessing the power of the Network Innovation Platform (AXOS®) to deliver Always On broadband connectivity. Coupled with the Services Management Connector (SMx), Mainland Telecom was able to quickly integrate with back-office systems and rapidly provision GPON fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) gigabit broadband services to residents of Clare—joining other Calix customers who have completed integrations up to 83 percent faster than industry averages and turned services up for new subscribers in seconds. The BSP is also streamlining customer care with Support Cloud, gaining unprecedented visibility and intelligence into subscribers’ experiences to further enhance their satisfaction and grow loyalty.

“In just three months, Mainland Telecom has achieved the perfect trifecta of results by simplifying operations, exciting subscribers, and growing their value to the community,” said Alan Lieff, vice president of sales for Calix. “Fiber is the most viable long-term option for offering the premium services subscribers want and need, and by partnering with Calix, Mainland has positioned itself to deliver today and well into the future as it expands into other service territories. The Intelligent Access EDGE and the simplified operations of the Network Innovation Platform enable it to build a uniquely future-proof fiber network and embrace an everyPON strategy. Combined with an unbeatable subscriber experience delivered via the Revenue EDGE, Mainland Telecom is poised to deliver the ultimate Wi-Fi experience to even more residents and businesses in rural Nova Scotia.”

Rugged, transfer-molded modules simplify compact motor drive design

APEC 2021 – PHOENIX, Ariz. – June 14, 2021 – ON Semiconductor® (Nasdaq:ON), driving energy efficient innovations, announces new, integrated, converter-inverter-power factor correction (PFC) modules for use in industrial motor drives , servo drives and HVAC where they are used to drive motors for applications including fans and pumps.

The new NXH50M65L4C2SG and NXH50M65L4C2ESG are transfer−molded power integrated modules (TMPIM) based upon standard aluminum oxide (AI2O3) substrate and enhanced low thermal resistance substrate respectively. Ideally suited to rugged industrial applications with high output power, the modules contain a converter−inverter−PFC circuit consisting of single-phase converter with four 75 A, 1600 V rectifiers. The 3-phase inverter uses six 50 A, 600 V IGBTs with inverse diodes and the dual−channel interleaved PFC comprises two 75 A, 650 V PFC IGBTs with inverse diodes and two 50 A, 650 V PFC diodes. An NTC thermistor is embedded to allow for monitoring of device temperature during operation.

As the module is pre-assembled in an optimized layout and configuration, parasitic elements are very small when compared with discrete PCB-based designs, thereby allowing a wide PFC switching frequency range between 18 kHz and 65 kHz. The highly efficient NXH50M65L4C2SG and NXH50M65L4C2ESG are rated at 50 A permitting use in applications up to 8 kW, and are the latest devices in the ON Semiconductor TMPIM family. Other devices are available with current ratings of 20 A and 30 A.

The compact transfer-molded DIP-26 package measures just 73 mm x 47 mm x 8 mm – a 20 percent area savings over current solutions that enables higher levels of power density. The sealed and robust package includes an integrated heatsink (with 6 mm clearance to pins) and offers high levels of corrosion resistance.

A silicon carbide (SiC) option is also available for further increased switching frequency and efficiency.

The new NXH50M65L4C2SG and NXH50M65L4C2ESG work alongside the FAN9672 PFC controller and gate driver solutions including devices in the new NCD5700x family. The recently introduced NCD57252 dual channel isolated IGBT/MOSFET gate driver offers 5 kV of galvanic isolation and can be configured for dual low-side, dual high-side or half-bridge operation. The NCD57252 is housed in a small SOIC-16 wide body package and accepts logic level inputs (3.3 V, 5 V & 15 V). The high current device (source 4.0 A / sink 6.0 A at Miller plateau voltage) is suitable for high-speed operation as typical propagation delays are 60 ns.

Driving motors in the most efficient way is key to simplifying installation, lowering heat build-up, enhancing reliability as well as reducing system costs. The ON Semiconductor TM-PIM devices standardize the pinout with minimized parasitic to give designers a high performance ‘plug and play’ solution. Coupling the NXH50M65L4C2SG and NXH50M65L4C2ESG with FAN9672 and NCD57252 provides a rapid design path to a sophisticated and efficient motor control solutions.

During APEC 2021, ON Semiconductor will showcase SiC solutions for industrial applications. To register as a visitor to APEC 2021, please visit http://apec-conf.org/conference/registration/.

Delta Electric Power Association subsidiary invests in some of the nation’s most underserved areas to deliver world-class broadband connectivity and cutting-edge services with Calix Intelligent Access EDGE and Revenue EDGE

SAN JOSE, CA – June 10, 2021 – Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced that DE Lightspeed, a subsidiary of rural electric cooperative Delta Electric Power Association (Delta Electric) in Mississippi, is leveling the broadband playing field for residents of some of the country’s most underserved and economically challenged areas by delivering world-class, managed Wi-Fi services with Revenue EDGE. Powered by the industry-leading performance and speed of the Wi-Fi 6 certified GigaSpire® BLAST systems, the company’s branded CommandIQ® mobile app—DELightSpeed—and value-added EDGE Suites, the broadband service provider (BSP) has exceeded anticipated adoption rates by 20 percent in just eight months. Excited subscribers in previously underserved areas can now connect—some for the first time—to fast, reliable, and affordable fiber internet services delivered quickly and cost-effectively over a simplified network powered by the Intelligent Access EDGE.

 

According to an April 2021 report by Broadband Now, Mississippi ranks in the bottom 20 percent for U.S. states with broadband access. In 2019, Mississippi granted authority to electric cooperatives to enter the broadband market and deliver services via a subsidiary to help bridge the digital divide. As a result, Delta Electric established DE Lightspeed and received funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act for a pilot project to deploy fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure to select rural areas of the state in desperate need of reliable, high-speed connectivity. The BSP began construction of a 416-mile fiber broadband network in late August of last year and, when completed just three months later, connected its first member nearly instantaneously thanks to the Calix Network Innovation Platform (AXOS®), the foundation for Intelligent Access EDGE that enables BSPs of all types and sizes to deliver Always On broadband connectivity as well as turn up and provision services quickly and easily.

 

Following the successful pilot project, DE Lightspeed received additional funding from the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) to continue building its FTTH infrastructure to cover the rest of its 13-county, 4,500 square mile coverage area over the next decade. As it expands, the BSP is reaching even more members with its exceptional managed Wi-Fi service offerings, enabled by the Revenue EDGE portfolio. Of the members who are using the DELightspeed mobile app alongside their GigaSpire BLAST systems to manage their connected home experience, 55 percent are tapping the value-added services of EDGE Suites applications ExperienceIQ and ProtectIQ, resulting in added visibility, security, and parental control across all connected devices in the home.

 

DE Lightspeed is bringing parity to a region that previously lacked consistent broadband coverage let alone a cutting-edge fiber broadband network and services. The new infrastructure and first-rate managed Wi-Fi offerings—which rival and even exceed those available in some of the country’s major metropolitan areas—will enable members to access critical job search and skill development resources, work- and learn-from-home opportunities, and advanced healthcare services that will reduce existing inequities and spur economic development.

 

“The areas we are servicing truly represent ground zero for many of our neediest populations, who now have an opportunity to improve their quality of life simply by having access to essential services that so many others take for granted,” said David O’Bryan, general manager of Delta Electric Power Association. “Calix enables us to deliver a blazing-fast network and managed Wi-Fi offerings that are game-changing for our membership and will go a long way towards bridging the broadband gap. We have been thrilled with the results so far—from the ability to quickly and efficiently turn up services for new members, to having a reliable, high-performing fiber network that enables us to deliver world-class services that excite our members, simplify our business, and grow our value—as well as the value of the communities we serve.”

 

DE Lightspeed’s fully managed, leading Wi-Fi services will be a key differentiator for the company as it aims to reach 11,000 new locations over the next five years—encroaching on traditional cable providers’ territory. Calix Marketing Cloud, another Revenue EDGE solution, will enable the BSP to compete more effectively with the incumbents by leveraging contextual, behavioral data to create relevant and targeted campaigns that excite subscribers and increase acquisition rates. Coupled with the industry expertise of the EDGE Enablement success teams, DE Lightspeed is well positioned to grow its value for years to come.

 

“DE Lightspeed has brought the future to rural Mississippi with a world-class Calix fiber broadband network and Revenue Edge Wi-Fi 6 based services that will open a world of opportunity for their members,” said Michael Weening, president and chief operating officer of Calix. “The deep insights and capabilities of the Revenue EDGE solution provide countless ways to excite members with the industry’s best Wi-Fi, flawlessly delivered experiences via the tight integration of CommandIQ and Support Cloud, and behavioral data from Marketing Cloud to generate targeted and relevant offerings as it expands its footprint. DE Lightspeed now has the digital foundation in place to leverage cloud-based offerings that provide ground-breaking, cost-efficient services within its service territory and beyond, exciting members and acquiring new members that will grow its value for many decades.”

Comprehensive portfolio of wide bandgap devices for high-performance charging solutions

APEC 2021 – PHOENIX, Ariz. – June 7, 2021 – ON Semiconductor® (Nasdaq:ON), driving energy efficient innovations, has announced a pair of 1200 V full silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFET 2-PACK modules further enhancing their range of products suitable for the challenging electric vehicle (EV) market.

As sales of EV continue to grow, infrastructure must be rolled-out to meet the needs of drivers, providing a network of rapid charging stations that will allow them to complete their journeys quickly and without ‘range anxiety’. Requirements in this sector are rapidly evolving, requiring power levels in excess of 350 kW and efficiencies of 95% becoming the ‘norm’. Given the diverse environments and locations in which these chargers are deployed, compactness, robustness and enhanced reliability are all challenges that designers face.

The new 1200 V M1 full SiC MOSFET 2 pack modules, based upon planar technology and suited to a drive voltage in the range of 18-20 V, are simple to drive with negative gate voltages. The larger die reduces thermal resistance compared to trench MOSFETs, thereby reducing die temperature at the same operating temperature.

Configured as a 2-PACK half bridge, the NXH010P120MNF1 is a 10 mohm device housed in an F1 package while the NXH006P120MNF2 is a 6 mohm device in an F2 package. The packages feature press-fit pins making them ideal for industrial applications and an embedded negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistor facilitates temperature monitoring.

As part of the ON Semiconductor EV charging ecosystem, the new SiC MOSFET modules have been designed to work alongside driver solutions such as the NCD5700x devices . The recently introduced NCD57252 dual channel isolated IGBT/MOSFET gate driver offers 5 kV of galvanic isolation and can be configured for dual low-side, dual high-side or half-bridge operation.

The NCD57252 is housed in a small SOIC-16 wide body package and accepts logic level inputs (3.3 V, 5 V & 15 V). The high current device (source 4.0 A / sink 6.0 A at Miller plateau voltage) is suitable for high-speed operation as typical propagation delays are 60ns.

Complementing the new modules and gate driver are the ON Semiconductor SiC MOSFETs that provide superior switching performance and enhanced thermals when compared to similar silicon devices. This results in improved efficiency, greater power density, improved electromagnetic interference (EMI) and reduced system size and weight.

The recently-announced 650 V SiC MOSFETs employ a novel active cell design combined with advanced thin wafer technology enabling a best-in-class figure of merit (FoM) for (RDS(on)*area). Devices in the series such as the NVBG015N065SC1NTBG015N065SC1NVH4L015N065SC1 and NTH4L015N065SC offer the lowest RDS(on) in the market for D2PAK7L / TO247 packaged MOSFETs.

The 1200 V and 900 V N-channel SiC MOSFETs feature a small chip size that reduces device capacitance and gate charge (Qg – as low as 220 nC), reducing switching losses when operating at the high frequencies demanded by EV chargers.

During APEC 2021, ON Semiconductor will showcase SiC solution for industrial applications as well as presenting exhibitor seminars about the company’s solutions for off-board EV-charging. To register as a visitor to APEC 2021, please visit http://apec-conf.org/conference/registration/ .

Subsidiary of the country’s second-largest electric cooperative realizes impressive jump in Net Promoter Score and grows its value by adding thousands of new subscribers after launching its premium Wi-Fi 6 service on GigaSpire BLAST systems and the branded CommandIQ mobile app

SAN JOSE, CA – June 3, 2021 – Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced that United Communications, a subsidiary of Middle Tennessee Electric, the second-largest electric cooperative in the United States, has boosted its Net Promoter Score (NPS) to an incredible +72 just one year after deploying Calix Revenue EDGE as the foundation for its premium managed Wi-Fi offering. This far exceeds the average NPS of zero for the industry, which has long struggled with a reputation for poor customer experience. United Communications’ service is powered by the full Revenue EDGE portfolio, including GigaSpire® BLAST systems and UControl—the company’s branded CommandIQ® mobile app—and leverages the insights from the tight integration between CommandIQ and Calix Support Cloud, giving the broadband service providers (BSP) unprecedented visibility into subscribers’ home networks. This has simplified the troubleshooting process significantly, yielding fewer truck rolls, improvements in first-call resolution, and increased operational efficiency and subscriber satisfaction—the exact metric that directly tracks to higher NPS.

 

Collectively, these successes have helped United Communications:

  • Surpass their goal of achieving a +65 NPS in 2020—a score that, according to Consumer Guru, goes well beyond the Net Promoter Scores of direct-to-consumer companies worth trillions, such as Google (NPS 11) and Amazon (NPS 7).
  • Achieve a 77 percent adoption rate of the UControl mobile app, which now offers a premium tier called Ultimate UControl that includes ExperienceIQ and ProtectIQEDGE Suites applications that give subscribers everything they need to manage and protect their connected homes, at their fingertips.
  • Accelerate the rollout of new, fully managed service offerings that excite its growing subscriber base, which is increasing by thousands.

United Communications joins other Calix customers that have secured market-leading NPS rankings by leveraging Revenue EDGE. To help maximize the benefits of Support Cloud—which provides the visibility and automated diagnostics needed to create highly efficient customer support—United Communications also invested in EDGE Enablement and Calix Education Services.  Support teams and field technicians are now armed with the knowledge and resources they need to fully optimize their use of Revenue EDGE and operate at a world-class level. The company plans to grow its value further by adopting Calix Marketing Cloud, which uses contextual, behavioral data to help marketers create relevant, targeted, and event-driven marketing campaigns for customized, cutting-edge services that will excite subscribers and build brand loyalty.

 

“The success of the communities we serve is at the heart of every decision we make, and the recent NPS feedback has more than proven that our decision to go with Calix was the right one for our customers and our business,” said Josh Lynch, chief customer officer of United Communications. “The Revenue EDGE helps us deliver a world-class, premium managed Wi-Fi experience to rural and previously underserved Tennesseans that rivals that of their urban counterparts, exciting our subscribers. Our branded mobile app not only helps them control their in-home experience, but also simplifies and lowers the cost of our operations by giving us added visibility into subscriber behavior through Support Cloud. We were already thrilled with the analytics and automation Support Cloud provides; with the most recent updates Calix has made, we now have the added layer of visibility that helps us proactively identify, understand, and resolve issues in real time. These capabilities, together with the dedicated, local support we’ve built our business on, will continue to be key differentiators for us as we grow our value by expanding into new, competitive markets.”

 

Founded in 1947, United Communications was acquired by Middle Tennessee Electric in 2018. Since then, it has worked diligently to bridge the digital divide by bringing high-speed broadband service to residents and businesses across seven counties. As its fiber footprint grows, the company will face competition in new markets. With the portfolio of Revenue EDGE solutions and services—and its fierce focus on customer service and satisfaction—United Communications is well-positioned to compete successfully.

 

“In less than a year, United Communications has managed to realize a Net Promoter Score that far outranks those of direct-to-consumer competitors, while signing up thousands of new subscribers,” said Michael Weening, president and chief operating officer of Calix. “These business metrics are market leading and clearly speak to their unwavering commitment to subscribers, who are benefiting from United Communications’ investment in the mature Wi-Fi 6 platform from Calix, a stunning mobile app that delivers value-added applications while highlighting their brand, world-class support, and the training and resources to deliver a superior in-home experience. We believe United Communications will continue to dominate their market as more subscribers eagerly embrace these exciting offerings, and the Calix team is proud to support United Communications on the next leg of their expansion journey.”
