Earlier this year, we launched the new International Channel program. Under the new framework, Channel Members promote, support and sell a wide range of products from our portfolio – across the cloud, network, and home
Our Channel Members are a strategic element of the ARRIS growth strategy, and last week, we recognized the valued input and achievements of our EMEA members at the EMEA Channel Conference awards ceremony.
Congratulations to all the nominees and thank you for your significant contributions to our success! See below some photos from the awards ceremony where we honored the following members: ALEA Soluciones, ALEF Nula, Divitel, DSC, ImproWare, Normann Engineering, RPC Romsat, SATCAB, Telco, V- LUX and Vector.
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.
This week we’re shifting focus to Asia where our cable portfolio is front and center at SCaT, India’s largest exhibition for the its satellite and cable TV Industry. Now in its 23rd year, SCaT brings together over 15,000 cable TV professional at the World Trade Center in Mumbai.
We have several unique experiences on display—from our new CMTS and HFC network solutions and cable Wi-Fi portfolio, to our DOCSIS modems and gateways, as well video compression solutions.
Check out some of our pictures below, but if you’re in Mumbai please be sure to stop by our booth! (B12,14,15 in Hall B)
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!
And we’re off… SCTE began yesterday and our end-to-end cable portfolio is at the center of this year’s conference, which has attracted more than 10,000 attendees to Denver this week.
We have several unique experiences on display—from new IP network solutions to our Wi-Fi Connected Home portfolio, network DVRs, D3.1 solutions and HEVC/ Ultra HD set-tops.
Check out some of our pictures below, but for the best view, be sure to stop by our booth this week (#1764)!
Charles Cheevers, CTO, CPE business at ARRIS
Almost daily, we see new evidence that people are video junkies—watching, posting, and downloading more video to more devices. Yet, we commonly expect our home Wi-Fi network to carry these experiences seamlessly.
Our ARRIS Consumer Entertainment Index found that almost two-thirds of us have problems streaming or downloading video. Whether it’s a slow connection, streaming delays or a frozen or blank screen—these issues can be maddening.
Wi-Fi can barely handle MPEG-4 video bandwidth, so how are we going to support 4K video transmission over the coming years?
At this year’s SCTE, I hope to shed some light on that solution. I’m outlining my thoughts on various technologies and directions being considered to ensure that the Wi-Fi network has both the ability and quality of service to provide a reliable solution. I’ll also cover ways we can pre-empt the congestion at 5GHz and show how software-oriented solutions can help facilitate the kind of quality we need to get new pay-TV video services over Wi-Fi.
Specifically, I’ll review the following key areas surrounding this topic:
- 5GHz spectrum map and what happens when devices try and carve out some deterministic throughput rates;
- Types of services and devices competing for this airtime;
- Challenges and main goals ahead for the IEEE High Efficiency Task Force as it tries to create new wireless protocols to handle Gigabit Wi-Fi solutions in the home;
- Convergence of LTE and Wi-Fi ;
- Role of network managed Wi-Fi resources and airtime;
- Emerging ideas around SDN, and SON-based assists to improving Wi-Fi performance.
I previewed this topic on SCTE’s site, but welcome you to join me and Comcast at Thursday’s 12:45 p.m. “Wi-Fi: The Quest for Quality” discussion. Look forward to seeing you at SCTE.
