ARRIS announced that it would demonstrate a complete solution for cable operators to delivery IP video (IPTV) from headend to home at an upcoming CableLabs event.
The ARRIS IPTV solution is an integration of ARRIS IP and converged media platforms. The demonstration at the CableLabs Summer Conference Innovations Showcase will stream on demand content and interactive advertising from a single server and a single on demand/advertising management system.
These IPTV streams are distributed from the headend using bonded DOCSIS 3.0 channels over a multi-wavelength RF over Glass (RFoG) optical network, terminating on an IP set-top, all monitored with the service assurance network surveillance platform.
"We are very pleased to be a part of CableLabs’ Conferences," ARRIS CTO Ken Wright said in a statement. "This end-to-end IP Video demonstration exemplifies ARRIS’s ability to take several industry-leading technologies and integrate them seamlessly into a solution that solves MSOs’ next generation architectural and advanced advertising requirements."
