today announced that iTSCOM, a brand name of its communications Inc., has
placed a significant order for the DOCSIS 3.0-qualified ARRIS Integrated
CMTS high speed data solution, based on the ARRIS C4(R) Cable Modem
Termination System (CMTS). The deployment of the C4 CMTS based solution
will enable iTSCOM to offer 'Kattobi Super Wide' high speed data service,
delivering 160 Mbp/s in the downstream and 10 Mbp/s in the upstream, to
