A recent report of Synergy Research Group Inc. stated that Arris Enterprises Inc. ( ARRS ) was the leading operator in the video client segment in the third quarter of 2013.

However, Cisco Systems Inc. ( CSCO ) remains the undisputed leader in the overall video infrastructure gear manufacturing industry. Nevertheless, Arris is far ahead of Cisco and Pace plc., particularly in the video client delivery segment.

The video client delivery segment consists of several hardwares and softwares related to set-top boxes and home media gateways. Additionally, Arris has remarkably improved its position in the video content management segment also. Arris currently has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).

The acquisition of the home businesses of Motorola Mobility, a division of Google Inc. ( GOOG ), has helped Arris to attain a strong foothold in the high-speed video offerings and Internet delivery markets. The merged entity has a global presence with more than 500 customers in 70 countries. Further, this deal will strengthen Arris' patent portfolio and provide a license to access several patents of Motorola Mobility.

With Motorola Mobility's Cable Home business in its kitty, Arris is likely to become a formidable player in the video infrastructure and customer premises equipment for the cable TV industry.

Comcast Corp. ( CMCSA ), the largest cable TV operator in the U.S., has launched Arris' XG1 gateway for its next-generation X1 TV service. The XG1 gateway offers several utilities to X1 customers, including intuitive search, voice control, multi-screen facility and improved DVR experience.

Comcast is also deploying the E6000 Converged Edged Router of Arris, which will act as a powerful C4 cable modem termination system and can be converted into a Converged Cable Access Platform.
