Our E6000™ Converged Edge Router gives service providers around the world new levels of network capacity and efficiency—a competitive advantage in delivering today’s services and the scale for driving tomorrow’s video and broadband experiences.
This week, we announced that Cable TV of East Alabama and Comporium will deploy the E6000 to their respective subscriber bases. The E6000’s footprint covers a growing footprint of millions of live consumers.
The Motley Fool called the E6000 “a bigger success than anyone predicted.” We’ve seen demand from operators grow by leaps and bounds since we launched the platform last December. That’s due in large part to its capability to realize incremental revenue for providers of all sizes—enabling more operators to take advantage of new efficiencies, while offering a customizable pathway to future services.
On a larger stage, that’s what ARRIS’s end-to-end platform is doing for today’s providers. It combines our legacy of leadership in video and broadband with solutions that span the entire content delivery chain—from the headend to the home. Our E6000 is just one of the ways that we’re collaborating with our customers to invent the future.

We just announced that LIWEST will be using our E6000™ Converged Edge Router (CER) to enable future high-speed broadband services of up to 1Gbps to its subscribers in Austria.
The deployment makes LIWEST the latest operator in a growing group of global leaders that have selected ARRIS and the E6000 to future-proof content delivery. Research firm Infonetics recently named ARRIS the leader in this industry-wide shift to the Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP), citing the sector’s 177% revenue growth and ARRIS’s global lead in the first quarter of 2014.
LIWEST will use the E6000 CER in tandem with our TG682 cable modem/gateway, which is already widely deployed to its subscriber base. This IP infrastructure allows LIWEST to achieve smarter, more efficient networks that can scale to tomorrow’s super-fast broadband speeds and the demands of new, advanced services.
ARRIS will show the industry’s first DOCSIS 3.1 demonstration on a shipping CCAP – our E6000 Converged Edge Router (CER) at this year’s Cable Show in Los Angeles.
This marks a new level of network scalability. ARRIS is focused on inventing the future, so we made sure that our current solutions could keep up with tomorrow’s demands. The E6000 CER is a prime example.
It’s the industry’s leading CCAP platform, driving the shift to IP through our flagship customers around the world and a footprint of over 2 million subscribers. And now, it’s the first to demonstrate the expanded bandwidth capabilities of DOCSIS 3.1.
Our Cable Show demo will highlight the E6000 CER’s ability to run full CCAP with video and DOCSIS services converged on the same F connector and interoperability between current DOCSIS 3.0 SC-QAMs (24 DOCSIS bonded channels and 8 video channels) and a DOCSIS 3.1 OFDM block.
More bandwidth means better services. The E6000 CER puts tomorrow’s complex multiscreen experiences, high-density video formats, and converged video and data services well within reach.
Join us in booth #1537, April 29th- May 1st, to check out our E6000 CER running DOCSIS 3.1 and see how we’re transforming the future of entertainment and communications.
