Arris has announced the availability of its next-generation wideband data and video delivery system, which is designed to assist Chinese cable operators to deliver IP video on-demand and ultra high-speed data services to their customers as part of a government mandate to deliver digital video throughout the country.
Arris’ system consists of the D5 Universal Edge QAM in combination with the C4 CMTS and Touchstone Wideband modems to deliver broadcast video, on-demand video and video over DOCSIS, as well as bi-directional wideband data over 120Mbps wideband data and IPTV services.
The company has been working closely with national cable operator China Cable Network (CCN) in a State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television (SARFT)-sponsored trial on Hainan Island Hainan province. This is one of the first such IP video over broadband trials in China.
We are extremely impressed with the ability of the C4 and D5 equipment in tandem to deliver basic and advanced video service in a cost-effective manner to our trial households, said Steven Sheng, Acting CTO of CCN. The Arris solution clearly demonstrates the capability of DOCSIS technology to deliver the services required for the Chinese market in a cost-effective and highly reliable manner.
