ARRIS, Incognito Software and Teknovus Demonstrate DOCSIS EPON Provisioning

ARRIS introduced a new DOCSIS Control Interface for subscriber service provisioning and system management on EPON networks. ARRIS developed the solution in partnership with Incognito Software and Teknovus.

The DOCSIS Control Interface enables cable operators to seamlessly deploy symmetrical EPON for business services with their existing DOCSIS provisioning system, instead of creating separate back office functions.

ARRIS is showcasing interoperability of its DOCSIS Control Interface, with Incognito Software's Broadband Command Center, a key product in the DOCSIS device provisioning space. In turn, the ARRIS DOCSIS Control Interface incorporates middleware from Teknovus, a leading provider of EPON chips for the FTTx market.

"With the successful integration of our DOCSIS Control Interface with the Broadband Command Center for EPON deployment, we are able to successfully provision EPON devices in our cost-effective Converged Head-end Platform," said ARRIS Access & Transport VP and GM Peter Wolff. "This new functionality will enable cable operators to efficiently serve their customers through an FTTMax Gigabit EPON network."
