Calix Addresses the New Normal by Fully Virtualizing Regional Summits

April 22, 2020

Virtual customer events to feature best practices and insights that made previous summits must-attend events for service providers pushing industry innovation

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced its immensely successful Regional Summit series will take place virtually in response to the COVID-19 global health crisis. These new virtual events will feature the same elements that built Calix Regional Summits into a must-attend series for communications service providers (CSPs) throughout the US and Canada. The series will bring CSPs, industry experts, and thought leaders together to exchange ideas and discuss the topics and trends shaping the industry as it adjusts to the “new normal.” This virtual series will begin with four regional summits, followed by smaller, more geographically targeted events. The first two regional events will take place on April 29. Click here for the full schedule.

“Calix is again demonstrating its forward thinking as the partner of choice for the most innovative service providers in the industry —this time in response to an unprecedented global situation,” said Lonnie Pedersen, chief operating officer for Minnesota-based Hanson Communications. “Broadband connectivity has been a massive part of industry and regulatory dialog in North America in the last decade, and with people confined to home for the last month, it has become even more important. Service providers each face unique situations based upon our geographies, customer bases, and networks, but we are all facing the same basic challenge of ensuring our customers remain connected. The Calix Regional Summits are extremely valuable, as they bring together numerous viewpoints and generate rich discussions that feature something of value for all attendees.”

Each regional event will include keynotes and panels from Calix executives and service providers discussing the unique challenges CSPs are facing in their areas. Specific topics will include insights from subscribers, employees, and communities as they navigate through unprecedented times, as well as analyses of the impact COVID-19 will have on funding and performance testing. Each session will conclude with real time Q&A and live polling.

“Today’s global challenge presents service providers with an immense opportunity to lead their communities and cement relationships with subscribers along the way,” said Skip Hirvela, VP of sales for Calix. “We have designed our Regional Summits to generate discussions among peers and encourage the sharing of best practices and lessons learned. Every one of those lessons holds added meaning right now, so it was vital that we continue to hold this forum for regional service providers. We have always prided ourselves on helping CSPs deliver best in class services, which is paramount now in the face of unprecedented subscriber and business challenges.”
