Calix and the Build America, Buy America Act

Calix is actively engaged with the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to align with its proposed Build America Buy America (BABA) guidance relevant to the Broadband Equity Access and Deployment (BEAD) program.   

NTIA released the proposed guidance on August 22, which will now be followed by a 30-day comment period. Final rules will be issued in 4Q 2023.

We are working with our supply chain partners to ensure we have the appropriate products manufactured in the U.S. to be compliant with BEAD guidance:

  • Optical Line Termination cards (OLT)

  • OLT optical modules

  • Optical Network Terminal (ONT)

As we always have, Calix will ensure that our products and processes comply with Buy America guidance.

We will share details regarding this strategy following the publication of the final NTIA guidance.
