ARRIS will be demonstrating its broadband access, advanced video and transport solutions to service providers at a Korean trade show, scheduled to be held in March.
The company noted that Korean cable operators and ISPs face stiff competition from national telecoms providers in delivering ultra high speed data service and video. And, to meet their growing customer demands, cable operators and ISPs are looking for cost-efficient and optimized infrastructure solutions.
ARRIS plans to demonstrate the C4 CMTS’ DOCSIS 3.0 upstream and downstream channel bonding capabilities. Company officials said that these capabilities deliver data speeds in excess of 100 Mbp/s upstream and 320 Mbp/s downstream.
In addition, the company also plans to demonstrate ARRIS optical access and transport solutions, converged head end platform, or “CHP,” with CORWave multi wavelength transmitters, CORView Element Management Systems, Opti Max 3100 and 4100 1 GHz segmentable nodes.
Company officials said that at the trade event, company will showcase new optical products designed for hybrid and fiber-deep architectures, including CORWave II multi wavelength transmitters; as well as the FTTMax RFoG Optical Network Units and FTTMax E-PON Optical Line Terminals and Optical Network Units.
Additional highlights at the show will be advanced transcoding and video compression capabilities using the ARRIS EGT VIPr and Encore dual-pass video encoder; ARRIS Managed Content Distribution architectures via the ARRIS ConvergeMedia management platform; and the ARRIS Fixed Mobile Convergence (News - Alert) platform for seamless mobile to fixed-line voice transfer.
Additionally, at the trade event, Todd Kessler, vice president of product management at ARRIS, will lead a discussion on “New Technologies for Enhancing Digital Cable TV's Market Competitiveness.”
ARRIS is a global communications technology company specializing in the design, engineering and supply of technology supporting quad-play broadband services for residential and business customers around the world.
Earlier last month, the company announced that Sunflower Broadband selected its Rapid Launch Hot Zone System to enhance their Wi-Fi service capabilities.
