ARRIS Announces Global Deployments of E6000® Second-Generation (Gen 2) Modules

Seven leading operators deploy ARRIS Gen 2 modules, paving the way for Gigabit services and next-gen Distributed Access Architectures

SUWANEE, Ga., Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ARRIS International plc (NASDAQ: ARRS) today announced that a wide range of global operators have deployed the second-generation (Gen 2) modules for its E6000® Converged Edge Router (CER) CCAP™ platform.

The E6000 CER is already the world's most widely deployed CCAP platform. The Gen 2 modules – which ARRIS announced in October 2017 – enable customers to upgrade existing chassis to achieve up to a 70 percent increase in headend service group density without consuming more rack space. Operators worldwide can immediately deliver multi-Gigabit broadband services and evolve to full end-to-end IP video services. Additionally, the ARRIS Gen 2 modules provide a software-based headend upgrade path to the Remote PHY Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) – for more than a three-fold Service Group density increase within the same rack-space footprint.

"ARRIS has a deep understanding of the constant demands our customers face to meet ever-increasing bandwidth, infrastructure and efficiency requirements," said Dan Whalen, ARRIS President, Network & Cloud. "We worked hand-in-hand with the world's leading operators to develop the ARRIS E6000 Gen 2 modules, and subsequently deploy them in both large and small-scale network environments to facilitate this global rollout."

ARRIS E6000 Gen 2 modules enable global operators of all sizes to achieve both cost savings and capacity upgrades from their HFC access networks, regardless of network composition and scale – and leverage their existing investments to deliver the future of broadband and video.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
