New Solutions for Greater Density, Capacity and Flexibility

Combined with its forward-leaning leadership in DOCSIS and other industry forums, including the Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) initiative, ARRIS continues to innovate on platforms with proven performance and capabilities. It is continuing to go big with bandwidth, especially with IP delivery platforms that already are carrying increasingly high volumes of video. And at Cable-Tec Expo 2012, it unveiled the following news in consumer premise equipment (CPE), CMTS and CCAP-compliant products:

  • E6000™ Converged Edge Router (CER). The CCAP-capable E6000 CER continues the highly successful legacy of the C4® CMTS and delivers new levels of density and cost- effectiveness in a simple, robust integrated architecture. Like the C4 CMTS, the E6000 CER provides a high-availability, high-performance solution with high scalability. The best features of the C4 CMTS are included in the E6000, such as hitless CAM fail-over; a fully redundant design with no single point of failure and hot-swap cards; and a system that is field- deployment ready for IPv6. The E6000 CER offers an unprecedented level of service group and channel density, both upstream and downstream.
  • Software release 8.1 for C4 CMTS and C4c™ CMTS products. The C4 CMTS has been shipping in volume for over ten years, making it one of the industry’s most successful CMTS platforms. C4 CMTS customers have come to rely on its availability, performance, density, and cost-effectiveness and can expect more of the same with Release 8.1. In conjunction with the installation of a System Control Module 3 (SCM), Release 8.1 delivers improved performance for control plane-related tasks including IP Detail Record (IPDR), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and Command Line Interface (CLI); increases in IPv6 route scaling; additional DOCSIS Set-top Gateway (DSG) feature support; and improved support for Lawful Intercept (LI) applications in Europe. These features further augment existing C4 CMTS trademark capabilities, such as hitless failover and high scaling of subscriber devices.
  • New Family of Touchstone® Wireless Voice and Data Gateways. The next generation DOCSIS® 3.0 wireless in-home network gateways are capable of delivering video and data at near 1 Gigabit speeds. They provide flexible options for 16x4 and 24x8 channel bonding. Cable operators can use these gateways to provide subscribers with high bandwidth, triple play and multiscreen services.
