SUWANEE, Ga. -- ARRIS (NASDAQ: ARRS), a global communications technology leader, today announced that Telenet, Belgium’s largest MSO, has selected ARRIS as its E-MTA supplier and has placed a substantial initial order for ARRIS DOCSIS® 2.0-certified and EuroDOCSIS 2.0-based Touchstone® TTM 402B indoor E-MTAs. The ARRIS E-MTAs will be used to address the customer premises side of Telenet’s large-scale PacketCable VoIP deployment.

“The Arris E-MTA enables us to offer both telephony and Internet services over the same customer premises device, thereby reducing our costs significantly,” said Piet Spiessens, Telenet Vice President of Network and Application Services. “After much review we selected the Touchstone TTM 402B since it proved to be a very reliable and feature-rich device that is perfectly interoperable with our Nortel Networks PacketCable VoIP softswitch.”

“This Telenet order represents the largest shipment to date of our EuroDOCSIS 2.0–based EMTA,” said ARRIS President of Worldwide Sales Ron Coppock. “We are honored to have been selected by one of Europe’s most innovative and service-oriented triple-play providers, and we look forward to providing Telenet with the customer premises components they will need as their VoIP deployment progresses.”
