ARRIS Releases E6000 Converged Edge Router

ARRIS announced the commercial release of its new E6000 Converged Edge Router (CER), which continues the legacy of the company's widely deployed C4® Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS).

The ARRIS E6000 CER delivers new levels of density with the an integrated architecture that has the capability to realize the vision of CCAP — the convergence of high-speed data, voice, and MPEG video service delivery from a single F connector.

"We're excited to declare the General Availability of the E6000 CER," said Bruce McClelland, President, Network & Cloud Global Services, ARRIS. "Operators today are benefitting from the unrivaled efficiencies of the E6000 CER – in rack space, power consumption, cooling, advanced services and new applications."

"The E6000 CER software is based on that of the C4 CMTS, which enables seamless deployments," said McClelland, "Cable operators who deploy IPv6 with the E6000 will benefit from years of operational IPv6 experience gained with the C4 CMTS and from an unprecedented level of service group and channel density, both upstream and downstream."
