C4® CMTS Platform Increases Downstream and Upstream Capacity

Provides flexibility to match each operator's specific bandwidth delivery needs

C4® CMTS    
  • Meet bandwidth demands through unmatched CMTS efficiency, flexibility, quality, and performance
  • Extend headend life while increasing CMTS capacity, reliability, and responsiveness
  • Capture market opportunities with a CMTS providing best-in-class availability, performance, and scalability
  • Achieve 99.999% availability with hitless fail-over of all major CMTS components
  • Protect investment now for the future with DOCSIS 3.0

Cable operators require quality and reliability to compete in today’s voice and data arena. The ARRIS C4 CMTS enables operators to offer world-class performance for advanced, carrier-grade voice, high-speed data, and IPTV services. Highly-reliable C4 solutions reduce CAPEX with a highly economical cost-per-port and low operational cost. The C4 CMTS reduces OPEX and improves ROI with a compact footprint, low power consumption, and minimal cooling requirements which allow the unit to be placed in existing headends and hubs without build out or additional infrastructure, extending headend life and maximizing capital investment. Designed with flexibility in mind, the C4 CMTS active components can be upgraded via software to stay current with changing service demands. The C4 CMTS provides operators tremendous flexibility of configuration and ease of operation while providing best-in-class reliability. Because the C4 CMTS offers full DOCSIS 3.0 upstream and downstream services including channel bonding, operators can configure and deliver high-speed and new convergent services efficiently, bringing increased revenue per customer and improved market responsiveness. The C4 CMTS positions operators to operate more profitably and compete more effectively by satisfying subscriber and corporate demand for new services, higher speeds, and superior service quality.

24U CAM

   

The 24U CAM doubles the C4 CMTS' previous upstream density, allowing cable service providers to deploy faster services, including DOCSIS® 3.0 upstream channel bonding, with less capital expense. The 24U CAM supports from 5-42, to 5-65 and 5-85MHz for upstream services, which allows operators to use more spectrum for future services, extending upstream HFC capability. Introduced at NCTA 2011, the 24U CAM is fully supported using today's high-performance C4 control complex and other chassis components, offering investment protection for all C4 CMTS customers.

XD CAM

   

In an environment where service and capacity strongly influence success, the ability to quickly - and with minimal disruptions - add capacity to existing networks provides operators with a significant competitive advantage. The XD CAM provides up to double the downstream capacity for each CAM—32 Annex B (6 MHz) channels or 24 Annex A (8 MHz) channels. The XD CAM increases revenue by increasing channel capacity to enable new services without increasing the current footprint. In addition, 16D CAMs deployed in a C4 or C4c CMTS with system software Release 7.4 can be field software upgraded to XD operation with the purchase of a license key. This allows operators to increase the number of downstream channels without purchasing new hardware or changing any wiring.
