Arris, which became a Cisco competitor with its $2.35bln purchase of Google’s Motorola Home unit, announced a slew of service provider deals featuring its E6000 Converged Edge Router (CER) at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo last week. They include the deployment of CRE with Alaska’s largest telecom company GCI, which seeks
to offer subs faster speeds and greater coverage throughout the state. The solution features field-deployment ready IPv6 support and integrated RF fail-over.

"As one of the first adopters, GCI is in a unique position to help transform how our subscribers access and enjoy their entertainment, everywhere," said Duncan Whitney Vice President, Data Products, GCI. "The ARRIS E6000 enables us to deliver popular services like our high-speed Internet and Voice over IP, today, while scaling to tomorrow’s entertainment experiences."

The vendor also scored a contract with WOW!, which is expected to enable efficient and scalable network expansion. The deal followed WOW!’s deployment of the Arris whole home solution. "Our subscribers need faster speeds and more entertainment and business services options than ever before," said Cash Hagen, Chief Technology Officer, WOW. "The ARRIS E6000 CER enables us to deliver popular services to meet our customers’ needs today – as well as the assurance that it will grow and evolve with us as we continue to deliver new experiences in the future."
