Communication technology company ARRIS unveiled its plan to participate at this year's Cable Congress to be held in Lucerne, Switzerland, Feb. 15-17.

For the second year in a row, ARRIS will be the exclusive technology provider for the Cable Europe Broadband Village, a demonstration area featuring the converged customer services of tomorrow delivered via cable.

Cable Congress is an event that offers a clear insight into the technologies, services and business models available today enabling the participants to understand both opportunities and challenges associated. Cable Congress is organized by Cable Europe, a trade association that groups all leading broadband cable TV operators and their national trade associations throughout Europe.

As stated, this year's Broadband Village will reveal a vision of cable's personalized, multi-screen, whole home customer experience for cable operators, regulators and Congress attendees.

Additionally, ARRIS said it has plans to demonstrate a Web-based multi-screen user experience that delivers content of choice to the consumer's device of choice while generating new revenue opportunities via targeted advertising. These applications will be enabled through the ARRIS ConvergeMedia Management suite and XMS video distribution system and the Whole Home Gateway and Media players.

Bob Stanzione, chairman and chief executive officer at ARRIS Chairman will speak on the panel titled: “'The Video Business and How Content Finds its Audience (News - Alert),” and Mike Emmendorfer senior director of Advanced Technology will present on: “The Road to IP: Network Access Evolution.”
