SUWANEE, Ga., Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ARRIS International plc (NASDAQ: ARRS) today announced that a wide range of global operators have deployed the second-generation (Gen 2) modules for its E6000® Converged Edge Router (CER) CCAP™ platform.
The E6000 CER is already the world's most widely deployed CCAP platform. The Gen 2 modules – which ARRIS announced in October 2017 – enable customers to upgrade existing chassis to achieve up to a 70 percent increase in headend service group density without consuming more rack space. Operators worldwide can immediately deliver multi-Gigabit broadband services and evolve to full end-to-end IP video services. Additionally, the ARRIS Gen 2 modules provide a software-based headend upgrade path to the Remote PHY Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) – for more than a three-fold Service Group density increase within the same rack-space footprint.
"ARRIS has a deep understanding of the constant demands our customers face to meet ever-increasing bandwidth, infrastructure and efficiency requirements," said Dan Whalen, ARRIS President, Network & Cloud. "We worked hand-in-hand with the world's leading operators to develop the ARRIS E6000 Gen 2 modules, and subsequently deploy them in both large and small-scale network environments to facilitate this global rollout."
ARRIS E6000 Gen 2 modules enable global operators of all sizes to achieve both cost savings and capacity upgrades from their HFC access networks, regardless of network composition and scale – and leverage their existing investments to deliver the future of broadband and video.

"With the ARRIS solution, we feel confident in our ability to provide our customers with the best possible broadband speeds and levels of service."
"We're determined to not only provide our customers with more bandwidth but to provide them with infrastructure that will keep pace with tomorrow," said Cash Hagen, Chief Operating Officer at WOW!. "The E6000 Gen 2 modules from ARRIS have enabled us to do exactly that without undertaking a significant investment or overhauling the hardware we already have in place."
"For 20 years, our customers have trusted us to deliver best-in-class broadband services," said Stefan Gintenreiter, CEO, LIWEST. "By implementing ARRIS E6000 Gen 2 modules, we're reassuring our customers that they can expect this same level of service and dependability for the next 20 years and beyond."
"A solution that lets us increase the number of service groups and related channels, without having to add more rack space, means we can extend our initial hardware investment," said Paulo Ribeiro, Head of NOS Engineering & Network Development at NOS Comunicações. "With the ARRIS E6000 Gen 2 modules, we're not only achieving cost savings but we're also able maintain our capacity to deliver on growing customer demands for high-performance services."
"Our customers expect TOYA to maintain the position of one of the fastest broadband providers in the country," said Rafal Banas, CIO, TOYA. "We selected the ARRIS E6000 Gen 2 platform so that we can continue to meet growing demand for bandwidth consumption, without increasing space requirements."
