SUWANEE, Ga. -- ARRIS (Nasdaq: ARRS) today announced that the ConvergeMedia Management Suite, previously known as nABLE, can now dynamically manage heterogeneous On Demand content across multiple video servers optimizing service provider resources for network bandwidth, video server storage and streaming. This functionality is enabled by Management Suite release 1.0, now generally available, and builds upon the software’s functionality to cost effectively manage content ingest, distribution and dynamic re-distribution of content across servers throughout the service providers’ networks.

The new platform enables service providers to deploy large media libraries of mixed or heterogeneous content throughout their networks of video server deployments to best suit their needs. Service providers can now extend VOD deployments to more communities by deploying edge servers that were not previously economically viable due to the management overhead and quantities of different edge servers required. Because ConvergeMedia Management Suite and storage platforms also support fully integrated advanced advertising features like dynamic ad insertion and interactivity, service providers have a platform to launch new revenue generating advanced services without replacing the deployed servers.

“With the growth in the type and quantity of media and consumption devices, it becomes even more important to ingest, distribute and manage such assets cost effectively and easily across small and large networks,” said Joe Matarese, VP & GM, Media & Communications Systems (MCS). “The new Management Suite platform delivers enhanced services to our clients’ subscribers no matter where they are and when they want to be entertained.”
