Michael Ashby - Chief Financial Officer
Dave Allen - Director of Investor Relations
So, welcome to the Calix presentation. Calix is a leading provider of broadband Access equipment into the second and third tire carriers. They do a lot with regard to rural broadband development. I would, I think given their focus there that they would also have some unique opportunities in some of the emerging markets as well.
So we’re going to do a quick presentation and then we are going to move right on to the Q&A session, so here we go.
Thank you Brian and good morning. My name is Michael Ashby. I’m the CFO of Calix and over there is Dave Allen who is the Director of Investor Relations, some of you may know Dave. The aim of this presentation here, which is the high level presentation is to take you through what does Calix do, starting of course with the Safe Harbor statement which I won’t bother reading out.
So Calix is the leader in Access Innovation. When we say leader is Access Innovation, that’s all we do, Access. We only design and make and engineer Access Products. So we are the largest telecommunication system vendor that focuses solely on Access. There are a lot of other people in this business, but they do other things, we only do Access. Our main competitors as you probably know are large companies like Huawei, Alcatel-lucent and closer to them (Inaudible) are the two leaders in the North American market here.
