IoT is a hot topic that made its way into more than one high-profile discussion at INTX. One such talk was Imagine Park’s “Why the Internet of Things is Definitely Still a Thing” featuring Comcast Engineering Fellow Mark Francisco and ARRIS CTO Charles Cheevers. We caught up with them after their panel for some relevant insights.
This year, The Cable Show is reborn as INTX: The Internet & Television Expo. The organizers bill it as “a new kind of show for a new kind of world,” which is appropriate since we’re showcasing the key technologies and services that operators will need to deliver the future of broadband and entertainment.
Our booth (#101) is right at the front of the exhibit hall and gives INTX’s thousands of attendees a glimpse of the experiences making their way to consumers, including nDVR, Ultra HD, IP video, gigabit speeds, and more.
Some highlights of our demos include our newest range of 4K set-tops and gateways, our cloud and nDVR solutions, and DOCSIS 3.1 network technology. And as a nod to our technology-driven partnership with NASCAR, we’ll be showing our exclusive 4K driving experience, featuring three 4K video streams delivered through a single gateway to three set-tops leveraging our E6000™ CCAP platform.
If you’re here at INTX, stop by booth #101 and check out all of our demos. And for those of you who weren’t able to make it this year, here are a few pictures from Day 1.
This week, industry leaders from across the globe will gather in Chicago for INTX 2015 (formerly known as The Cable Show). Our experts will be present to help advance the dialogue around the future of entertainment technology. In fact, we are participating in several sessions that cover the latest trends and technology advancements related to DOCSIS 3.1, the Internet of Things, 4K and other areas that will be key in enhancing the entertainment experience. If you’re attending INTX, make sure to schedule in some of the below sessions and stop by our booth #101.

Today is Earth Day. It’s a reminder of our impact on the environment every other day of the year.
At ARRIS, we’re committed to minimizing our global carbon footprint and energy use through environmentally responsible business operations. We call it “eco-innovation.” And it’s the way that we approach building better products everyday. But we’re also working to ensure that millions of people around the world who use ARRIS products in their homes are also minimizing their impact on the environment.
The set-top devices that they use to enjoy their content, their way, is the focus of our efforts this Earth Day. ARRIS is a leading manufacturer of energy efficient set-tops. Most of our set tops meet industry standards for energy efficiency and have power-saving features. And we work closely with the world’s leading service providers to constantly improve the equipment standards for energy efficiency.
Today, we are showcasing our latest set-top devices for Verizon FiOS at their Dallas, TX facility. These new devices include theVMS1100 Media Server and IPC1100-P2 IP Client set-tops, which improve whole home energy efficiency by 20% over current multi-room DVR configurations.
Through efforts like these, we’re reducing our collective impact through better, more energy-efficient devices. And while we still have a long way to go, we’re committed to eco-innovation that does its part every time someone tunes in to watch TV.

ARRIS is constantly Inventing the Future to keep our partners ahead of the curve. Our webinar series is designed to offer insight into new trends and technologies that contextualize this innovation while providing a deeper dive into real-world implementation.
In tomorrow’s webinar on “Demystifying the 85MHz Return Path Bandwidth Expansion,” our engineering and product executives—Carol Ansley, Craig Hugueley, and Jim McGuire—will join Corey McCarthy, CFO and SVP of Business Development of the NCTC, for an overview of the 85MHz return path as a solution for addressing today’s unprecedented increases in network traffic.
They’ll review the considerations for adding an 85MHz return bandwidth expansion and talk through execution in a typical network.
Please REGISTER NOW for tomorrow’s webinar at 2pm EST and come with your questions.
How do you cut the costs of delivering IPTV services in half?
The answer starts with Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) protocols. And our Engineering Fellow of Broadband Systems, John Ulm, will discuss that and ABR’s other implications for IP video delivery in his presentation on Cloud-based ABR – Unified Managed Linear Service for Multiscreen at NAB.
In it, John will reveal how Multicast-assisted ABR (M-ABR) completely changes the economics of delivering IP video services—significantly reducing capacity requirements resulting in lower costs, reduced CDN requirements and enhanced Targeted Advertising delivery.
He’ll also talk about its distinct service quality advantages for precious linear broadcast content across a wide range of devices in the multiscreen environment. Be sure to stop by Room S227 at 9 a.m. PT on April 16th.
