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.

ARRIS & Motorola

Today, ARRIS is announcing that as of year’s end, we will no longer be using the MotorolaARRIS_Vertical_4c_CMYK brand on our retail products.

Since our acquisition of Motorola Home two years ago, we’ve anticipated this transition by accelerating our investment in making ARRIS the trusted name and global leader it is today. Now, we’re ready to usher in the next wave of industry innovation under the ARRIS brand.

When we acquired Motorola Home, we inherited a 60-year legacy of award-winning innovation—including the legendary SURFboard® line of products.

The SURFboard is the most widely recognized and most popular retail cable modem —with more than 135 million sold, covering 90% of the market. It’s the retail standard. And it has an impressive history of firsts—including the first wireless broadband gateway, which brought wireless Internet into millions of homes around the world.

That legacy continues today at ARRIS.

As we’ve grown our global brand, we’ve also accelerated our investment in the SURFboard line of products. The result is a new legacy of firsts, including the world’s first 802.11ac cable modem gateway and the world’s first 16×4 channel cable modem, delivering the fastest wired and wireless cable Internet speeds available today.

The world has taken notice. Our commitment to building the fastest, best-performing, and most reliable devices in the world has cemented ARRIS’s relationship with its leading service providers. The ARRIS brand is now in tens of millions of consumer homes, thanks to a variety of innovative new products, numerous awards, word of mouth, and our sponsorship with NASCAR.

When you choose ARRIS and our SURFboard line of products, you’re getting the result of a legacy of innovation and a continued investment in inventing the future.

Thank you for choosing ARRIS!

ARRIS and Charter Announce Joint Venture to Acquire ActiveVideo

ARRIS and Charter – with a shared vision – joined forces today to acquire ActiveVideo.

ActiveVideo developed CloudTV™, the only cloud-based software platform that enables service providers, content aggregators, and consumer electronic (CE) manufacturers to rapidly deploy new services – such as next-gen UIs, online content and interactive advertising – by virtualizing CPE functions in the cloud.

A new JV company was created to own ActiveVideo and operates independently of ARRIS and Charter. ARRIS will be the sales channel for ActiveVideo’s CloudTV platform. ARRIS’s service provider relationships, global scale and installed base of CPE will support the accelerated adoption of CloudTV – giving CloudTV the clout to reach a worldwide customer base.

ARRIS will be the majority owner of ActiveVideo, with a 65% stake in the JV. Charter will participate as a minority owner. Jeff Miller will continue to lead ActiveVideo as CEO. The transaction – which is subject to customary closing conditions – is expected to close within the next 30 days.

Charter and ARRIS came together due to our shared vision for enabling an all-IP network and the software-defined TV experience that will allow our industry to quickly move in response to subscriber trends. For Charter, this represents its commitment to the success of the CloudTV platform and its confidence in CloudTV’s value proposition for customers and consumers around the world. For ARRIS this represents a compelling opportunity to partner with a strategic customer and expansion of our cloud portfolio with CloudTV, a disruptive cloud technology already adopted by Tier 1 customers. Together, we see the opportunity as an ideal way to accelerate the adoption of CloudTV’s innovative platform that enables the delivery of powerful consumer and subscriber experiences….quickly and with lower CapEx.

This is another example of ARRIS’s ongoing legacy of collaboration with customers to Invent the Future.

Stay tuned here for more updates in the coming weeks.
