As you know by now, more content on more devices means increased bandwidth, infrastructure and efficiency needs…and this trend only goes up and to the right from here. Today, South Korea’s SK Broadband is added to an impressive roster of service providers (Comcast, Time Warner Cable, WOW!, GCI) deploying our E6000 Converged Edge Router addressing network bandwidth demands. SK Broadband is launching a 1GB data service and chose the E6000 platform as a solution to deliver higher speeds, while keeping cost and space requirements low.
Check out a recent demonstration of the E6000’s downstream capability (64 channels per port), DOCSIS and video capabilities and hitless failover performance from SCTE.
Recapping on news from last week, we announced that BT, the major telecoms provider in the UK and one of the world’s largest telcos, is using our world-class IPTV headend across BT TV and BT Sport, benefiting from our encoding, video distribution and services platform. This includes our SE-6501 and SE-6601 encoders, and our DM6400 Cherrypicker, which supports the high-profile content shown on BT’s popular sports channels.
ARRIS was the natural choice for BT to help provide its revolutionary Sports offering and deliver an excellent viewing experience to their customers, which launched 1 August and is enjoyed by some four million homes across the UK and Ireland. Happy viewing to all those lucky enough to get the service!
