ARRIS Debuts Converged Edge Router with Greater Density, Capacity and Flexibility at CCBN

SUWANEE, Ga., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- ARRIS Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARRS) will display the latest platform in its cable edge portfolio, the ARRIS E6000(TM) Converged Edge Router (E6000 CER) at the China Content Broadcasting Network Exhibition (CCBN2013). ARRIS will also highlight the features and functionality of its Switched Digital Video (SDV) solution, already integrated in the local China Cable ecosystem, in booth #2302, in Hall 2. The portfolio helps cable operators prepare for CCAP, maximize bandwidth and add operational simplicity, allowing them to better meet changing subscriber demands. The event takes place from March 21 - 23, 2013 in the China International Exhibition Center (CIEC) in Beijing.

The CCAP-capable E6000 CER continues the highly successful legacy of the ARRIS C4® CMTS and delivers new levels of density and cost-effectiveness in a simple, robust and integrated architecture. Like the C4 CMTS, the E6000 CER provides a high availability, high performance solution with unmatched scalability and supports a fully redundant design with no single point of failure, as well as offering hitless fail-over, hot-swapping of cards and field-deployment ready IPv6. Operators can mix and match ARRIS cable edge products to create the optimum network configuration for deploying tomorrow's services with today's hardware.

The ARRIS E6000 CER allows operators to: -- Maximize revenue off a single chassis, with one of the highest densities per rack unit available, to deliver more services at faster speeds -- Increase subscriber satisfaction and retention with a self-healing design that decreases outages -- Preserve capital investment with flexible platforms that offer 'wire once' architecture with software upgradeability and easy mid-plane design All elements of the E6000 CER are redundant, either N+1 or 1+1, and all are hot-swappable. Designed for 99.999% system availability, the E6000 CER has a self-healing architecture that maintains system services without interruption.

ARRIS has the most deployed SDV solution in the world, spanning over 40 million households. ARRIS SDV is based on its CVEx(TM) control plane and family of Universal Edge QAMs: BEQ(TM), D5® and MSP. SDV provides an economical alternative for reclaiming bandwidth on the RF spectrum as it dynamically broadcasts linear channels only when actively viewed by a subscriber. This allows cable operators to add a large number of additional HD channels to their lineup as well as grow other applications like VOD and HSD in the freed spectrum.

Additionally, ARRIS will showcase its industry leading portfolio of end-to-end video, voice and high-speed data solutions that have been widely deployed by major cable operators and telco carriers worldwide.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
