Many homes and small offices are moving to wireless networks, and many cable operators see the need to accommodate this trend as either a competitive necessity, or an opportunity to potentially raise ARPU with an offering of wireless networking. To truly capitalize on this market, cable operators are moving to the ARRIS Touchstone Data Gateways, allowing them to bring their subscribers high speed data and whole home/office wireless routing. The wireless router adds tremendous value to both the home or small office, and provides a level of “stickiness” for the cable operator via the delivery of multiple services to the same subscriber. To protect the subscriber’s data and support the small business environment, the Data Gateways are equipped to support multiple SSIDs and multiple options for security, including WPA, WPA2, WEP, and MAC authentication. Operators or subscribers can enable the device for full wireless 802.11b/g/n coverage, or LAN coverage via the 4 port Ethernet, whichever better suits the subscriber’s needs and environment. ARRIS provides cable operators the highest levels of satisfaction with the setup, management, and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and has improved on these qualities with the DG16xx and DG24xx series. The ARRIS implementation of TR-069 capabilities allows a cable operator to more easily see what’s going on at the location of the modem, cutting support costs.
