Arris has announced the launch of its Whole Home Solution Media Gateway. The company best known for its DOCSIS-based range is positioning the product as a cheaper alternative to cable set-top boxes, E-MTAs, cable modems and wireless Wi-Fi routers.
Arris reported reduced revenues in the fourth quarter, in line with company expectations, as the technology company’s international revenues grew significantly.
Arris has announced its downstream module upgrade, significantly increasing the downstream density of the DOCSIS 3.0 C4 CMTS. Adding increased downstream density gives cable operators the ability to deliver more bandwidth per subscriber at a much lower cost than previously possible.
Arris CEO Bob Stanzione says the company sees optimism for broadband delivery products, but has warned of a short-term decline in demand for CTMS units.
The Dutch cable operator Kabel Noord has selected the Arris DOCSIS 3.0 C4 CMTS platform to increase the data speeds it offers its 25,000 customers in the northeastern areas of Friesland, The Netherlands.
Arris has announced that it has agreed to purchase the assets of Digeo, Inc., including its intellectual property portfolio, for a cash purchase price of approximately $20 million (€13.6 million).
