Broadband and video technology specialist Arris has launched an updated portfolio of Hybrid Fibre Coax (HFC) optics, nodes, and amplifiers designed for European cable service providers to scale their networks to deliver the advanced multiscreen services nowadays demanded by consumers.
This complete portfolio of HFC products will be on display for the first time at ANGA COM 2013. European service providers will get a preview of these transformative solutions, which are geared towards delivering additional HD channels, VoD support, and faster broadband in the near term, while opening to door to future services such as Ultra-HD.
“Research shows that subscribers’ multiscreen habits are growing rapidly, and our service provider customers want to keep ahead of that demand,” said Steve McCaffery, EMEA General Manager, Arris. “However, multiscreen and TV everywhere put considerable strain on the broadband network, so our customers are looking to Arris’s leadership in HFC to enable their shift to IP-based networks,” he explained.
Arrishas designed the portfolio with simplicity, economy, and performance in mind. Engineered for European requirements with three outputs (two active), they are flexible enough to suit a number of different architectures and scenarios — legacy and modern — and offer excellent performance in every setting.
The new Arris optical nodes and RF amplifiers became part of the Arris portfolio through the company’s acquisition of Motorola Home.
