The ARRIS C4 CMTS Release 8.1.5 is providing another set of major feature additions intended to increase profitability and operational efficiency for customers of the industry-leading DOCSIS® 3.0 C4 CMTS. The C4 CMTS allows an operator to cost-effectively deploy DOCSIS, PacketCable™, DSG/ADSG, and PacketCable Multimedia (PCMM™) services. The C4 CMTS increases subscriber satisfaction and retention via a self-healing design that maintains system services without interruption, providing industry-leading 99.999% system availability.
The ARRIS E6000 Converged Edge Router (CER) is a next-generation CCAP-ready platform that provides cable operators unprecedented advances in channel density, power efficiency, and cost savings in a redundant, integrated architecture designed from the ground up for high availability. Operators deploy the E6000 today as a dense, high-availability CMTS for data and voice services. ARRIS will deliver a series of software upgrades beginning in early 2015 that will provide for Integrated Edge QAM (IEQ) functionality with today’s E6000 CER hardware. The E6000 CER software is based on that of the C4 CMTS, meaning that the E6000 benefits from over ten years of refinements in stability, hitless failover, and performance at high scale. This software re-use also provides the E6000 CER with a proven set of features for IPv6. No other CCAP-ready platform today enjoys a proven software code base for these critical functional areas.
