SUWANEE, Ga. -- ARRIS Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARRS) today announced that it has expanded its cable edge portfolio, again. The newest member of the portfolio, the E6000 Converged Edge Router (E6000 CER) will be on display along with ARRIS C4 and C4c CMTS platforms and the Media Services Platform (MSP) in ARRIS booth #2802 at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2012. The portfolio helps cable operators prepare for CCAP, maximize bandwidth and add operational simplicity, allowing them to better meet changing subscriber demands.

The CCAP-capable E6000 CER continues the highly successful legacy of the C4 CMTS and delivers new levels of density and cost-effectiveness in a simple, robust and integrated architecture. The C4 CMTS has been shipping in volume for over ten years, making it one of the industry’s most successful CMTS platforms. Customers rely on and endorse its availability, performance, density, and total cost of ownership.

“We’ve been working with the major cable operators and CableLabs for over three years on the CCAP specifications and vision, and believe that now is the time to introduce the increased capabilities of the E6000,” said Bruce McClelland, ARRIS President, Products & Services. “We have taken our CMTS and video processing experience and extended its hallmarks of reliability and availability into higher density applications which meet our customers’ near term broadband distribution needs.”

"ARRIS has been a strong contributor to the development of next-generation access platforms such as CCAP, and we are excited to help them bring this to market,” said Sam Chernak, Senior Vice President of Access Technology for Comcast Cable. “They have been a technology partner for many years, and we look forward to continuing this with the CCAP platform."

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
