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."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
