Whole Home Solution – The ARRIS Whole Home Solution allows users to receive broadcast and demand driven video, Over the Top video, IP voice and high-speed data content through a Media Gateway platform. Service providers can enable customers with all the applications they desire through just one device, eliminating the need for stacks of boxes and wires running throughout the house. This solution delivers more personalized content to more screens with more features, thus enabling new revenue streams for service providers.

Demand-driven Video, Video Processing & Advanced Advertising Solutions – The ARRIS ConvergeMedia solution and COTS-based XMS Video Server, deliver multi-format video content and advanced advertising services on a single unified platform to subscribers’ screen of choice. This platform also provides support for the latest HTTP communications protocols and caching capabilities. ARRIS Advanced Video Processing products capture and manage multi-format video, including MPEG-4 transcoding with adaptive streaming; deliver 4:1 HD compression; support SDV rate clamping and ad splicing – all resulting in more efficient spectrum utilization and significant QAM channel cost savings.

Fixed Mobile Convergence – The ARRIS Mobility Application Server provides full SIP-based Dual Mode Fixed Mobile Convergence with support for seamless roaming and handover between circuit-switched and IP networks. Offloading voice, messaging, and data services to IP networks reduces operators’ costs and provides opportunities to offer competitive service packages.

Integrated Broadband Solutions – The industry-leading ARRIS C4 and the compact C4c CMTS, both with 8D x 4U channel bonding capabilities, harness the power of DOCSIS 3.0 to deliver more video, more voice and more high-speed data traffic to more subscribers.
