This week we’ve been at the Cable Tech Show in Tokyo, Japan which attracted 9,500 attendees over two days at the Tokyo International Forum.
With 28 million households in Japan (that’s 50% of households overall) with a cable TV connection, served by 350 operators, the Japan cable market is one of the most exciting globally.
Our booth was buzzing for the two day event, with much interest in the ARRIS access technology portfolio and Cable WiFi solutions, as well as the globally successful ARRIS E6000™ Converged Edge Router with DOCSIS 3.1 demonstration. We also announced an exciting deal with Izukyu Cable who will be the first operator in Japan to deploy a converged edge router with the ARRIS E6000.
ARRIS experts Kaz Tomomatsu, Ray Bontempi, and Rich Peske all took part in the technical seminar program, sharing views on DOCSIS 3.1, access technologies and video processing respectively.

We just announced that LIWEST will be using our E6000™ Converged Edge Router (CER) to enable future high-speed broadband services of up to 1Gbps to its subscribers in Austria.
The deployment makes LIWEST the latest operator in a growing group of global leaders that have selected ARRIS and the E6000 to future-proof content delivery. Research firm Infonetics recently named ARRIS the leader in this industry-wide shift to the Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP), citing the sector’s 177% revenue growth and ARRIS’s global lead in the first quarter of 2014.
LIWEST will use the E6000 CER in tandem with our TG682 cable modem/gateway, which is already widely deployed to its subscriber base. This IP infrastructure allows LIWEST to achieve smarter, more efficient networks that can scale to tomorrow’s super-fast broadband speeds and the demands of new, advanced services.
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.
More than half of what we stream over the Internet is video, according to Sandvine and traffic consumption in all regions continues to grow at a rapid rate.
With this amazing growth in video consumption over the Internet, it’s no surprise that service providers are looking for new ways to expand capacity of their broadband network in ways that are both economical and seamless. That’s why we introduced our E6000 Converged Edge Router platform last year. It uses an incredibly efficient architecture and an integrated, hitless sparing design to keep providers ahead of today’s IP consumption trends, while ensuring a reliable and scalable solution for future services and network demands.
Since the E6000’s introduction in June of 2013, Comcast, Time Warner, WOW!, GCI and others have demonstrated why it is the leading CCAP capable platform in the industry—using it to deliver high-quality content to over a million subscribers. This rapid success speaks to the demand and stability of the E6000.
Todd Kessler, our VP of CMTS/CER Product Management, recently demonstrated the E6000’s impressive downstream hardware capability (64 channels per port), DOCSIS and video capabilities, and hitless failover performance at SCTE.
The proof is in the numbers: one million reasons and counting…
