ARRIS Completes Acquisition of Ruckus

Today, we are proud to welcome Ruckus into the ARRIS family.

Watch our ARRIS-Ruckus Close interview, featuring CEO Bruce McClelland and Dan Rabinovitsj, President of ARRIS Enterprise Networks.

ARRIS has a proud legacy of leadership in networking and entertainment technology. We’ve always worked to connect people to the things they love. Now, with Ruckus, we’re bringing in experts, product lines and capabilities that will extend our leadership into new areas. Combined, we will offer constant connectivity in a range of environments from the home to the enterprise and everywhere in between. This is the essence of constant connectivity.

The new combination will have the perfect mix of ARRIS global scale and Ruckus expertise. And, while we are coming together under the ARRIS umbrella, Ruckus will operate as a dedicated business: Ruckus Networks an ARRIS company. The business will be part of the ARRIS Enterprise Networks segment, led by Dan Rabinovitsj.

This structure will maintain Ruckus’ momentum and empower it to serve its fantastic network of channel partners. It will also preserve and nurture the much-respected Ruckus brand.

Ultimately, Ruckus will enable ARRIS to do more of what it does best: deliver technology that supports our global customers and redefine connectivity for billions of people around the world.

This is a truly exciting time for our extended family. And, we’re just getting started.

Traffic Engineering in a Fiber Deep Gigabit World

By John Ulm, Engineering Fellow, ARRIS

By John Ulm, Engineering Fellow, ARRIS

The introduction of Gbps service is dramatically changing cable broadband. Many new innovations are finding their way into cable operators’ plants and many others are on the way. With DOCSIS® 3.1 deployments well underway and DOCSIS Full Duplex (FDX) on the horizon, operators have the promise of symmetric Gigabit services. At the same time, some operators are starting their migration to fiber deep networks while others are looking at Distributed Access Architectures (DAA) such as Remote PHY. All of this will have significant impact on the way operators manage their traffic engineering and network capacity planning.

During SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo® 2017, at the session, “Traffic Engineering Optimization II,” I’ll be discussing the ramifications of these issues and the significant impact they will have on the way operators manage their traffic engineering and network capacity planning. Attendees at this session will also hear from Jeff Finkelstein, Executive Director of Advanced Technology, Cox, and Dr. Claudio Righetti, Chief Scientist & Security, Cablevision S.A. Argentina.

As an industry, we need to re-evaluate and update our models, starting with an intimate understanding of customer bandwidth behavior. I will discuss our recent research in this area and show interesting results from live plants. For example, we have seen an extremely wide range in capacity utilization between different customers, even within the same service tier. I will also highlight the impact on Service Group (SG) performance, This deep understanding of customer bandwidth behavior then allowed us to develop a more QoE centric traffic engineering model that operators can use to guarantee user satisfaction.

Join us on Wednesday, October 18th at 10:45am MT in room 205/207.

Update on our SURFboard SB6141 Modem

You may have seen articles over the weekend about our SURFboard® SB6141 cable modem. 2-big-SB6141_Left_SideWe want to provide some updates.

First and foremost, we developed a firmware upgrade to correct the issue affecting the SB6141. This firmware upgrade will be automatically sent to your device from your cable operator.

Second, we want to assure you that the issue affecting the SB6141 does not provide any risk to user data. IF you were impacted, you would have seen your modem reboot and been offline for a short period of time. Fortunately, we haven’t received any reported instances of this happening.

Third, we want to be very clear that the issue does not affect 135 million modems. Reports stating this number were incorrect, and we reached out to the publications that published them to address their inaccuracy.

Our company takes product performance very seriously. We continue to work actively with security organizations and our Service Provider customers to quickly resolve any potential vulnerabilities to protect the subscribers who use our devices.
