GigabitNow, Calix deliver Gbps-capable broadband network for northern California's Sea Ranch Connect project

GigabitNow, a solutions provider for building last mile fiber networks, has chosen Calix's gear to power a community network at The Sea Ranch in northern California. Located along a 10-mile stretch of the Sonoma County coast, The Sea Ranch is a popular vacation destination encompasses of 2200 homes. Earlier this year, GigabitNow began construction on its community- owned fiber to the home build in Sonoma County, giving the underserved residents of the Sea Ranch community 1 Gbps connections.

To support the FTTH build, GigabitNow is leveraging Calix's solution set, which includes Compass software, 844GE GigaCenters, and the E7-20 Fiber Access System. A key element of the work with Calix is to have remote support for Wi-Fi, a service traditionally only offered in large city environments.

Steve Milton, CEO of GigabitNow, said that the Compass software and GigaCenter solution "will allow us to remotely monitor and troubleshoot subscriber's home Wi-Fi networks from one centralized location, even as we scale to serve new communities throughout the Pacific Northwest and northern California."
