Korean MSO HCN Unleashes Nation's Fastest Data Speeds in Deploying ARRIS C4(R) CMTS with Upstream Channel Bonding

SUWANEE, Ga., Sept 16, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

ARRIS (Nasdaq: ARRS) today announced that HCN, one of Korea's top cable MSOs, has deployed the ARRIS DOCSIS(R) 3.0 C4 CMTS platform, featuring Upstream Channel Bonding. This will be among the first deployments of Upstream Channel Bonding (USCB) in Korea and the region, and many of these early USCB adopters have selected the ARRIS C4 CMTS platform, for its proven reliability, density and scalability and its leading edge USCB technology.

The ARRIS DOCSIS 3.0 C4 CMTS solution is capable of delivering ultra-fast data speeds, along with carrier-grade voice service, when combined with DOCSIS 3.0-based in home voice and data or data-only modems. The technology is based on the DOCSIS 3.0 standard that supports both Upstream and Downstream channel bonding capabilities.

"We plan to implement Upstream Channel Bonded service on the ARRIS C4 CMTS in addition to 8 Downstream Channel Bonded service, to deliver ultra high-speed Internet service in excess of 300 Mbp/s in Q4, 2010," said Mr. Kijeong Kwon, CTO and Managing Director of HCN. "We feel that this, in addition to the many new and unique programming choices we are offering, will help us secure a competitive edge against telco providers while increasing overall customer satisfaction."

"ARRIS was one of the innovators in the definition of Channel Bonding during the creation of the DOCSIS 3.0 specification," said Todd Kessler, VP, Product Management at ARRIS Broadband Communications Systems, and a frequent speaker at Asia-Pacific technology conferences. "Our C4 CMTS solution has been supporting Downstream Channel Bonding in the field for some time and now, with expected changes in customer usage, we are very proud to be delivering greater upstream speeds using Upstream Channel Bonding for HCN. These technologies will permit HCN and other MSOs to support anticipated bandwidth demands of the future."
