Network System Co. Ltd. (CNS). Per the contract, Arris will
supply high-definition set-tops (HMC3000) and a middleware
platform (KreaTV) to China Network System.
Nationwide, China Network serves more than one million

gateways will support two-way applications on KreaTV.

$1,199.1 million, up a whopping 248.6% year over year. The
company's Customer Premises Equipments (CPE) segment generated
$865.4 million of total revenue, up by a substantial 434.9% over
