Ore.-based BendBroadband will be the first MSO in the country to deploy the ARRIS “Whole Home Solution Media Gateway” in its network to allow its customers to access such services as broadcast, VoD, over-the-top and user-generated content, whole-home DVR, high-speed data, Wi-Fi and primary- line voice via a single remote and a customized on-screen user interface.

According to ARRIS Broadband Communication Systems President Bruce McClelland, “The ARRIS Whole Home Solution is a disruptive technology solution that will accelerate the transition of content delivery to an all-IP paradigm. We are very happy to be working with BendBroadband, our first announced Media Gateway and Media Player customer, on this innovative approach to charting a new direction in personalized customer experience.”

ARRIS says its Whole Home Solution “provides a lower cost-per-household alternative to traditional cable set-top boxes, E-MTA’s, cable modems and wireless Wi-Fi routers. The solution includes a centralized gateway providing multimedia entertainment services including broadcast and narrowcast video, video on demand, DOCSIS 3.0 high-speed data and two lines of carrier-grade voice over IP, as well as Internet over-the-top and media sharing of user-generated content.” The system also supports DLNA to connect with subscriber-owned, DLNA-enabled devices and CableCARD conditional access.
