Mobile: the next big opportunity for TV service providers?

ARRIS is attending DigiWorld Summit in Montpellier France this week to discuss whether mobile, a device that has impacted nearly every aspect of our lives, could be set to revolutionize television in the same way.

As we know TV consumption is rapidly becoming a multiscreen experience, with people increasingly expecting to be able to watch their favorite shows on either their tablets or smartphones. But so far TV on these device has been delivered through catch-up or streaming services – not live broadcast. What if the mobile could do more?

Cornel Ciocirlan, CTO EMEA, will speak on a panel alongside experts including the BBC and France Télévisions, to debate whether established TV services (live broadcasts) can be delivered to mobile devices, and what future technologies are needed to make this a possibility. The panel will also discuss how traditional service providers should view this as an opportunity to grow its audiences. In the future device user-scenarios will evolve, and traditional cable TV models could be disrupted, to include mobile as a true alternative or complement to the tethered first screen.

If you’re attending DigiWorld Summit, Cornel’s panel today, Thursday 20th November, 12:10-13:50. More information about the event can be found here.

ARRIS Taiwan: Celebrating 50 Years of Innovation

Today, we celebrated the golden anniversary of ARRIS Taiwan—one of our premier manufacturing sites.

ARRIS Taiwan is built on a legacy of innovation: for the last 50 years, it’s redefined the way our industry manufactures and the way that ARRIS’s technology reaches the world.

When we opened its doors in 1964, we became the first foreign-invested electronic device manufacturing company to enter Taiwan. The facility has since pioneered the manufacturing processes for the mass production of set-tops and other solutions that drive our industry.

Today, ARRIS Taiwan is our largest production facility and our primary CPE production site, building products for the world’s leading service providers.

ARRIS Taiwan employs a world-class team, including a large group of engineers dedicated solely to R&D. These experts help keep ARRIS and our customers ahead of the curve and lead our vision for the future of entertainment and communications. You could say that ARRIS Taiwan is an important foundation for ARRIS’s commitment to continuously pushing the industry standard in sustainability, social responsibility, energy efficiency, and quality in manufacturing.

This year alone, ARRIS Taiwan completed a project to eliminate 12 tons of plastic bags each year, and began implementing robotic production automation to pave the way for 50 more years of inventing the future.

Happy golden anniversary to our Taiwan team! Catch the celebration in our pictures below.

ARRIS Recaps SCTE

SCTE is an experience. If you didn’t make it to the show, or if you’d like to relive some of the excitement, we invite you to watch our recap video and see it through the eyes of our employees…

We looked at innovation from the perspective of our E6000™ platform, new IP set-tops and broadband and telephony devices, AgileMax™ and the death of OBI, and tomorrow’s experiences, like 4K and Wi-Fi evolution.

Then we sat down with several of our employees to chat about other important subjects, like the future of cable, the coolest stuff at the show, and the practical benefits of nDVR super powers.

We hope you enjoy it!
