ARRIS will display its new C4 CMTS 24U Cable Access Module (CAM) at the Cable Show in Chicago, next week.
The 24U CAM doubles the C4 CMTS’ previous upstream density, allowing cable service providers to deploy faster services, including DOCSIS 3.0 upstream channel bonding. The 24U CAM supports from 5-42, to 5-65 and 5-85MHz for upstream services, which allows operators to use more spectrum for future services, extending upstream HFC capability. The 24U CAM is fully supported using today’s C4 control complex and other chassis components.
With the 24U CAM, ARRIS continues providing ‘hitless’ RF sparing fully integrated into the C4 chassis precluding the need for external wiring or added components. Coupled with the recently introduced XD CAM double density downstream module, the C4 CMTS now delivers true high-availability with density.
