Arris Enterprises Inc.
), a leading video and broadband gear manufacturer, is set to
explore the Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) segment. The
company has started the commercial deployment of its innovative
converged edged router called E6000. The newly launched E6000
router will act as a high-density powerful C4 cable modem
termination system (CMTS) of the company while it can be
converted into a Converged Cable Access Platform.
CCAP technology will help the carriers to maximize bandwidth,
simplify the operational structure and evolve according to
subscribers' demand. E6000 will integrate edge QAM legacy video
architecture and CMTS DOCSIS IP network of Arris so that cable TV
operators get a convenient integrated-IP platform. This will
eliminate the need for a separate edge QAM device at the cable TV
In May 2013, Casa Systems was the first company to
commercially introduce an integrated CCAP device. The CCAP market
is highly competitive with incumbents like
Cisco Systems Inc.
) and CommScope Inc. to name a few. Meanwhile, in Jun 2013, Arris
), the largest customer of the company, has started commercially
deploying its E6000 Converged Edged Router.
In 2012, Arris launched an innovative and upgraded CMTS. The
new cable access module (CAM) is integrated with Arris' flagship
C4 CMTS, which was upgraded with 24 downstream ports that
immediately doubled the speed of the existing 12 downstream port
CMTS. The new upstream card complements the company's XD CAM,
which supports 32 downstream ports. One of the primary features
of this product is that it can support DOCSIS 3.0 upstream
channel bonding with IPv6 capabilities.
