LAS VEGAS — Announcing an array of new products and deals at this week's NAB show, Arris said it has reached a deal with HBO to provide its DSR-7400 transcoder satellite receiver.
With pay-TV consolidation hitting Arris' bottom line hard in recent quarters, the top industry vendor is eager to shine the light on emerging business areas.
Arris said it's addressing a vulnerability in its SurfBoard 6141 DOCSIS 3.0 modems with a firmware update.
Living near Downtown Los Angeles, I've learned to live like a monk as far as data speeds are concerned. I've steadfastly resisted Time Warner Cable, leaving me to make due to with the 6 Mbps offered through AT&T U-verse DSL. Simply put, there are just not a lot of great ISP options yet.
Despite a 41 percent increase in shipments of downstream network equipment, total spending on broadband infrastructure by cable operators dropped 3 percent to $1.74 billion in 2015, according to SNL Kagan.
Arris said that Altice NV has deployed its DOCSIS 3.1-enabling E6000 converged cable access platform (CCAP) within its SFR unit in France.
As the global pay-TV market changes the definition of what a set-top is, Grand View Research forecasts that the worldwide set-top market will reach $25.5 billion by 2022.
Arris has confirmed that it will lay off approximately 10 percent of its global workforce, or about 800 staffers.
Perhaps eager to divert the attention of investors from the sagging CPE portion of its business, Arris has announced that its E6000 converged edge router is part of Comcast's ongoing deployment of DOCSIS 3.1-powered gigabit-speed networks.
As AT&T looks to migrate its existing and emerging video base off its IP-based U-verse platform onto DirecTV, it is having a direct impact on suppliers like Arris, which reported that its fourth quarter 2015 revenue declined 12.7 percent to $1.1 billion.
