    "We had a great fourth quarter and made remarkable progress in 2013. As a result of our successful acquisition and integration of Motorola Home, we are a larger, stronger and much more relevant supplier to a growing worldwide customer community. Moreover, 2014 is looking to be our best year ever." said Bob Stanzione, ARRIS Chairman and CEO. "Our fourth quarter results were strong. Our revenues were up 12% from the third quarter, largely as a result of new product introductions, and we had strong cash generation. Also, in the quarter, we retired our remaining convertible notes for $232 millionand repaid $141 million of our term loan debt, including a $125 million optional prepayment," said David Potts, ARRIS EVP & CFO. "With respect to the first quarter 2014, we now project that revenues for the Company will be in the range of $1,170 to $1,210 million, with adjusted net income per diluted share in the range of $0.42 to $0.47 and GAAP net income per diluted share in the range of $0.05 to $0.10."

    Broadband speeds are ramping up across Europe as the continent, at its own pace, follows North America towards a gigabit society. But there are many steps to take on the road to gigabit broadband availability and a number of technology options that can meet the various requirements of Europe’s high-speed fixed broadband network operators. During this radio show we will look at some of the catalysts for broadband network investments and examine the menu of technology options on offer, including vectoring and G.fast for copper plant evolution and the various deployment possibilities for FTTH/B.
