ARRIS CORWave(TM) Adds Variable Output Transmitter and International Version That Supports Extended Channel Plans

1 GHz CORWave Variable Output Allows MSOs Greater Customization

1 GHz CORWave Extended Linearization for Improved Performance across all Channel Plans

SUWANEE, Ga., June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ARRIS (Nasdaq: ARRS) today announced the availability of a variable output feature to its 1 GHz CHP CORWave Forward Transmitter. The new feature is unique to the market and allows output powers to be configured by the customer via the GUI software, rather than pre-ordered from the factory. This provides MSOs with maximum flexibility when finalizing link budgets within their network architectures, and saves on sparing costs. CORWave is an extension of ARRIS broadly-deployed, field proven multi-wavelength optics solutions that deliver more capacity over longer-link distances on existing fiber.

Additionally, ARRIS has introduced a 1 GHz CORWave DXL (dual input, full-bandwidth) forward transmitter that extends analog linearization out to 870MHz. The CORWave DXL provides better distortion performance, allowing operators using global channel plans to add incremental bandwidth capacity on as few as one fiber, and can be monitored by the CORView Element Management system.

"ARRIS has over a decade of experience in the design and deployment of multi-wavelength systems and more than 15,000 CHP optical multi-wavelength transmitters deployed," said Peter Wolff, SVP, ARRIS Access, Transport and Supplies. "Our field-proven expertise and the new features we continue to design, in conjunction with customer feedback, enable us to provide an efficient, robust and reliable solution for network service providers worldwide."
