SUWANEE, Ga. -- ARRIS International plc (NASDAQ: ARRS) and Luxembourg's cable incumbent, Eltrona, have joined forces to launch the first ultra-high-speed 1GBps broadband service in Luxembourg.
The Eltrona network uses ARRIS R-PHY Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) technology to full advantage of DOCSIS® 3.1. By virtualizing and decentralizing its network’s headend functions, Eltrona can achieve greater network capacity and higher network speeds.
Eltrona selected the ARRIS E6000® CCAP, E6000® Core, R-PHY shelf, and TG3442 Wireless Telephony Gateways to complete the DOCSIS 3.1 network between its CMTS (cable modem termination system) and subscribers' premises. Eltrona’s 1Gbps residential service is now the fastest in Luxembourg. The upgraded delivery network also enables Eltrona to backhaul mobile data in preparation for 5G rollouts across the region.
The deployment marks the latest milestone for ARRIS in a series of important DAA and DOCSIS 3.1 rollouts around the world. Continued large-scale deployments of its popular E6000 platform and DAA capabilities highlight ARRIS’s global expertise and unmatched range of capabilities, from headend, network and residential technology to professional services and support.
