Because there’s only one Earth. Mars is for quitters.

“The new structure will allow our company, employees and partners to concentrate on what they do best .” Each Business Line will have a clear and compelling mission, with its own strategic planning, business model, and capital strategy; and yet all connected by Calix’s core technology platform. I look forward to seeing what this enhanced focus will deliver”
