SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced a stellar lineup of forward thinking innovators for the general session at ConneXions 2019. Clayton Nash, head of products for CityFibre; Stacy Evans, chief broadband officer for BrightRidge; and Charles Austin, head of network and operations for FTC will take the stage on Tuesday, October 29. Each will discuss the best practices and business benefits from their rollouts of autonomous networks—the last they will ever need—featuring the modular, hardware-independent AXOS® platform.

  • Clayton Nash serves as the head of products at CityFibre, the UK’s leading alternative provider of wholesale full fiber infrastructure. He is responsible for aligning products with evolving network and market opportunities. CityFibre is delivering a new generation of Gigabit-capable full fiber infrastructure to five million homes and businesses. They offer an open-access, software defined network to carriers, mobile operators, and ISP customers.
  • Stacy Evans is the chief broadband officer for BrightRidge, a local not-for-profit public utility based in Johnson City, Tennessee. He leads the utility’s broadband practice, which is rolling out fiber broadband for the first time to better serve its nearly 80,000 subscribers and transform its business.
  • Charles Austin heads network and operations for Farmers Telecommunications Cooperative in Rainsville, Alabama. He has directed the transformation of FTC’s network monitoring process, optimized its workflows, and decreased service desk support calls by 40 percent.

“All three of these unique innovators are actively deploying the last network they will ever need with Calix and the AXOS platform,” said Matt Collins, chief marketing officer for Calix. “ConneXions is the ideal destination for our customers and partners to share the insights and best practices they need to outmaneuver competition and lead broadband communications markets.
