Réunion is an island in the Indian Ocean, close to Mauritius. Despite its modest population of just 850,000 people, the country has the same broadband supply and demand challenges as markets many times larger.
Reunicable is a leading Multi-System Operator (MSO) operating on the island and delivers a triple play offering through its local brand Zeop. The company wanted to extend its network, offering gigabit broadband speeds to all its customers. As a result, it needed world-leading solutions to stay competitive with the other providers on the island and prepare for the future. Working with ARRIS channel partner Lucas Telecom to advise on design, deploy and integrate the technology, Zeop has now implemented the new solution, anchored by the ARRIS E6000 Converged Edge Router.
The implementation was hassle-free and enables Zeop customers to freely use bandwidth-intensive applications with low latency. Zeop’s services are now positioned well against Réunion’s other operators, thanks to ARRIS technology, but it also has the capability to grow its revenue with new services and differentiate itself in the marketplace in years to come.

Our E6000™ Converged Edge Router (CER) is the industry’s leading CCAP platform. It provides service to millions of subscribers around the world, and now features DOCSIS® 3.1 capabilities to help deliver new gigabit services.
Because of the E6000’s popularity, ARRIS Training now offers an expanded curriculum featuring advanced courses that go beyond basic operations. The new, self-paced courses build on existing foundational courses and are followed by a capstone, lab-intensive, instructor-led classroom training session that will be available in December.
ARRIS Training students who have taken the E6000 CER Basic Operations course are eligible to sign up for our E6000 CER Advanced Troubleshooting course suite. It consists of four eLearning courses:
- E6D301: E6000 CER Cable Modem Registration
- E6D302: E6000 CER Theft of Service Prevention
- E6D303: E6000 CER RF Impairments
- E6D304: E6000 CER Troubleshooting Capacity and Bandwidth
Our instructor-led capstone course launching in December will feature real-world problem solving.

Welcome to ABTA. Over the past two days, we’ve hosted customers and attendees from all over Latin America who have come to see how our solutions are transforming the entire video experience for the world’s leading service providers.
Our demos highlight new DOCSIS® 3.1 devices, IoT capabilities, and CCAP solutions like our industry-leading E6000® CER.
In case you weren’t able to make it to our booth (#72), check out a few photos below. And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @ARRIS for updates!
At INTX, ARRIS is showcasing new additions and extensions to our flagship E6000® Converged Edge Router (CER), the industry’s most widely deployed CCAP™ platform. These enhancements—including a new 10G EPON Fiber Module, Router Switch Module 2 (RSM-2) and UCAM-2 module—will help our service provider customers scale to tomorrow’s even higher bandwidth services by preparing their networks for DOCSIS® 3.1 migration and multi-gigabit speeds of the future.
We’ll demonstrate the updated capabilities of our E6000 CER, including:
- The new multi-gigabit services and greater capacity that operators can deliver with the 10G EPON Fiber Module and the Router System Module 2 (RSM-2)
- The high-density 10G EPON solution will be shown live for the first time, demonstrating multi-gigabit symmetrical service delivery with the E6000 chassis
- Also shown for the first time is the RSM-2, which substantially increases the E6000 network-side interface capacity and its packet forwarding capacity, preparing the E6000 platform for future bandwidth growth
- The super-fast upstream speeds enabled by the DOCSIS 3.1 capable UCAM-2
- The UCAM-2 provides significant increases in both DOCSIS 3.0 upstream channel capacity per service group and the ability to support DOCSIS 3.1 in the upstream
- The doubling of downstream DOCSIS 3.1 support with the current, first-generation DCAM via a software-only upgrade.
- Convergence of video into the platform with traditional MPEG digital video and IP video
- Realizing the goal of converging video and data into the CCAP
We will also have a static display of our planned Remote PHY (R-PHY) solution, which will further extend the capabilities of the E6000 CER.
Stop by our booth (#1214) to see our expanded downstream offerings for DOCSIS 3.1 as well as our new advancements to support it in the upstream.
DOCSIS® 3.1 has long been touted as the technology that will bring Gigabit services to the masses, so that consumers can enjoy faster broadband connections. It’s a technology that a number of service providers are looking to deploy in 2016, and one that ARRIS helped pioneer.
Today, it is exciting to see that DOCSIS 3.1 is becoming a reality. Comcast just announced that it will bring the world’s first DOCSIS 3.1 Gigabit Internet service to residential and business customers beginning in five US markets in 2016, using existing connections. We are excited to be part of this effort by supporting rollout in four of these markets with our flagship E6000® Converged Edge Router (CER) and a software-only upgrade.
When it comes to DOCSIS, we have a strong track record of pioneering innovation – from our work in developing the standard itself, to our unmatched technical expertise and the DOCSIS-based network deployments we have successfully completed around the world. This puts us in a unique position to bring this technology to market at scale. We recently unveiled new DOCSIS 3.1 modems for operators and retailers that complement our robust DOCSIS 3.1 network portfolio. And our E6000 CER is software-upgradable to DOCSIS 3.1 to help deliver on the full promise of multi-gigabit services to the home.
As more connected devices, streaming video and advanced services make their way into the home, consumers expect nothing less than fast speeds and reliable connections. We expect Gigabit speeds to the home to be the new standard by which broadband service providers will be measured. We are ready to continue working with our customers in 2016 to enable the smooth migration to these next-generation technologies – and provide the best-quality entertainment and communication experience in the home.
Next week, ARRIS will be exhibiting at NCTC’s Winter Educational Conference in Phoenix, AZ from February 15-16th. Our focus is on the technical underpinnings of delivering advanced new entertainment services like Cloud DVR and Multiscreen.
Our booth (#303/305) will feature active demonstrations of our industry-leading Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) and network solutions supporting the new bandwidth and technology requirements of these services. We’ve organized them in four relevant experience areas under the following topics: Cloud & IP Video Solutions, Gigabit Services, Wi-Fi® Without Limits, and Next Generation Devices.
We’ll run a remote demo of IP video over our DCX3635. Our E6000® Converged Edge Router will showcase Gigabit service using DOCSIS® 3.1. We’ll demonstrate our Hosted Service Provider Wi-Fi Solution for public, commercial and domestic deployments—which played a key role in our recent collaboration with Suddenlink to roll out carrier-grade Wi-Fi to its commercial customers. And we’ll have a variety of new CPE devices on display, including new IP gateways.
Also, be sure to catch Charles Cheevers, ARRIS CTO of the CPE business, talk on Preparing for IP Video, which will cover the evolution of network and CPE technologies and—like ABR, DOCSIS 3.1, and Gigabit Wi-Fi—that’s driving new IP video experiences.
