Laufer this year has been instrumental in the deployment of multiple new technologies for Arris. She’s been responsible since the beginning for the emerging product vManager, which is the virtualized manager and orchestrator for the cable access network. Laufer also led the deployment of Remote PHY at Stofa, a Danish TV and internet provider. It is one of the first successful Remote PHY deployments in the world. Arris officially recognized Laufer as an “Out of the Box Thinker.” Not content with just those accomplishments, she also played a hand in founding the Arris Women Business Network and participates in its mentoring program.
