Chile’s VTR selects ARRIS

September 23, 2014

VTR GlobalCom has chosen ARRIS Group’s E6000 Converged Edge Router (CER) to grow its network and offer enhanced high-speed broadband services.

The E6000 CER also enables VTR concurrently to reduce its operating expenditures with its industry-leading rack space, power, and cooling efficiencies, and a ‘wire-once’ architecture that reduces the need for re-cabling in the data centre.

“Chile’s consumers are demanding more content, at faster speeds and on more connected devices than ever,” said Dale Bassen, chief technology officer, VTR. “The ARRIS E6000 allows us to meet this growing appetite for content, while providing our fastest broadband speeds. ARRIS’s CCAP platform also delivers immediate operational savings and the option to scale to future consumer entertainment desires.”

“VTR came to us with two goals: attract and retain customers with super-fast broadband speeds, and deliver these services using less rack space and power,” said German Iaryczower, senior vice president Sales, Caribbean and Latin America, ARRIS. “VTR selected our E6000 CER for its ability to achieve both at the same time. Now, they’ve joined a growing list of global service providers that have made the same choice to realise operational savings today while preparing for the future.”
