Arris Enterprises Inc. (ARRS - Analyst Report), a leading video and broadband gear manufacturer, is set to explore the Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) segment. The company has started the commercial deployment of its innovative converged edged router called E6000. The newly launched E6000 router will act as a high-density powerful C4 cable modem termination system (CMTS) of the company while it can be converted into a Converged Cable Access Platform.

CCAP technology will help the carriers to maximize bandwidth, simplify the operational structure and evolve according to subscribers’ demand. E6000 will integrate edge QAM legacy video architecture and CMTS DOCSIS IP network of Arris so that cable TV operators get a convenient integrated-IP platform. This will eliminate the need for a separate edge QAM device at the cable TV operators’ end.

In May 2013, Casa Systems was the first company to commercially introduce an integrated CCAP device. The CCAP market is highly competitive with incumbents like Cisco Systems Inc. (CSCO - Analyst Report), Harmonic Inc. (HLIT - Snapshot Report) and CommScope Inc. to name a few. Meanwhile, in Jun 2013, Arris declared that Comcast Corp. (CMCSA - Analyst Report), the largest customer of the company, has started commercially deploying its E6000 Converged Edged Router.

In 2012, Arris launched an innovative and upgraded CMTS. The new cable access module (CAM) is integrated with Arris’ flagship C4 CMTS, which was upgraded with 24 downstream ports that immediately doubled the speed of the existing 12 downstream port CMTS. The new upstream card complements the company’s XD CAM, which supports 32 downstream ports. One of the primary features of this product is that it can support DOCSIS 3.0 upstream channel bonding with IPv6 capabilities.
