ARRIS CORWave Platform Wins 2nd Consecutive Best Fiber Transport Solution Award at Cable & Satellite International Awards

SUWANEE, Ga., Sept 21, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

ARRIS (Nasdaq: ARRS)announced today that for the second year in a row, it has been awarded highest honors in Cable & Satellite International Magazine's 2010 Awards in the Best Fiber Distribution/Transport Solution category with its CORWave Dual Density (CORWave DW) 1 GHz multi-wavelength forward transmitter.

CORWave DW brings cable operators an immediate 50% reduction in physical footprint for forward transmission by encapsulating two transmitters in one single wide application module, along with providing up to 8 wavelengths over distances of up to 40 km. CORWave DW is also among the most energy-efficient forward transmitter solutions on the market, consuming 7 watts per transmitter.

CORWave DW addresses cable operators' concerns over facility constraints such as power budgets, air conditioning and floor space, and reduces environmental impact with an immediate 50% decrease in the number of physical devices needed for forward path transmission while only consuming 7 watts per transmitter. Its simplified operation means there is less head end 'plumbing' and easier module management. Its multi-wavelength plan allows fiber reclamation; leveraging existing fiber infrastructure without new fiber construction.

"The CORWave DW solution maintains our leadership role in multi-wavelength fiber re-use solutions," said ARRIS Access & Transport President John Caezza. "Cable operators are looking to optimize their Total Cost of Ownership and reduce system complexity. Receiving this prestigious award again proves that ARRIS has been listening carefully and is continuing to deliver value-based solutions in a cost-effective and elegant manner."
