SUWANEE, Ga. -- ARRIS (Nasdaq: ARRS) today announced that Japan Cablenet Limited, the nation’s second largest cable operator, will begin wide-scale deployment of its 160 Mbps Super High Speed Data service, called “Speed Star 160”, across its cable system footprint, beginning at its JCN Koala Katsushika site this month.

The ”Speed Star 160” rollout is especially significant in that it incorporates what is believed to be the industry’s first deployed service using Upstream Channel Bonding technology, which greatly enhances data rates. This technology not only greatly increases data throughput speeds to customers, but also ensures greater network reliability through noise reduction.

Japan Cablenet selected the ARRIS Cable Modem Termination System solution in 2009 to deliver ultra-fast wideband data service to its customers. The ARRIS CMTS solution consists of the DOCSIS 3.0-qualified C4 CMTS and DOCSIS 3.0-certified WBM760C wideband modems, capable of delivering data speeds up to 160 Mbps, along with carrier-grade voice service. The technology is based on the DOCSIS 3.0 standard that supports both Upstream and Downstream channel bonding capabilities.

The sale of the ARRIS I-CMTS solution was conducted with the assistance of ARRIS Value-Added Resellers Net One Systems and KDDI.

“We are very excited to be the first network in Japan, if not the world, to deploy Upstream Channel Bonding for our High Speed Data customers,” said JCN General Manager of business planning department and DOCSIS3.0 project manager, Hiroyoshi Takeyama. “This critical feature will make activities like the sharing of family pictures, home movies or other user-generated content a far more satisfying experience for our subscribers. It is our mission to provide our customers with the world’s fastest, most secure and most reliable super high-speed data service.”
