Newly combined portfolio components on display at The Cable Show 2013

WASHINGTON, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CABLE SHOW 2013? ARRIS Group, Inc.(Nasdaq: ARRS) is showcasing its portfolio of integrated solutions for service providers at The Cable Show 2013. This debut follows the company's transformative acquisition of Motorola Home two months ago.

Today, ARRIS unveiled its comprehensive solutions that directly address major industry trends in multiscreen, the IP transformation, the connected home, and the personalized user experience.

"For the past two months, we've been focused on maximizing the advantages of our expanded portfolio," said Bob Stanzione, CEO, ARRIS. "At The Cable Show this week, ARRIS is exhibiting the full scope of our newly combined solutions?in the network, cloud, and home?to a global audience of service providers and programmers. These powerful solutions will enable our customers to shape tomorrow's consumer content experiences and transform communications and entertainment, on a global scale."

ARRIS is showcasing its combined innovations in four key areas at its Cable Show Booth # 2433: unleashing multiscreen, redefining the connected home, delivering actionable intelligence, and transforming video delivery.

Unleashing MultiscreenMultiscreen is a global phenomenon affecting more than half of digital consumers, according to a recent study by Motorola Home (prior to its acquisition by ARRIS). The expanded range of next-gen UI and targeted advertising solutions offered by ARRIS give providers a unique opportunity to customize and monetize their approach to multiscreen. With Converge Media Management Suite, QAM-based infrastructures can integrate with Medios+ E2E solutions for a phased approach to multi-screen.

Multiscreen solutions from ARRIS start with an award-winning end-to-end platform of multiscreen software that blends content management, security, advertising, and more into a seamless experience for consumers on any network. Its cloud-based frameworks support updates and developments at Internet speeds.

In fact, the ARRIS portfolio combines three of the most powerful development platforms in the industry: Whole Home Solution with the Moxi® User Interface, DreamGallery?, and RDK. Each approaches UI development differently, collectively offering providers an unprecedented level of flexibility in delivering next-generation, personalized TV experiences.

Redefining the Connected HomeAs the industry embraces a migration to an all-IP network, the expanded portfolio of ARRIS gateways is well-positioned to give service providers the best choices for getting there. An expanded stable of gateways offers a variety of ways to address consumer demand for video, high-speed data, and telephony, while ensuring that today's hardware will scale to tomorrow's connected home.

Transforming Video DeliveryThe proliferation of connected devices and the influx of advanced new IP services are also putting increased strain on the network. ARRIS continues to lead the industry in unmatched density and bandwidth solutions ? now, with some of the industry's top technologists behind its advanced convergence applications.

The ARRIS advanced convergence demonstration at Cable Show 2013 showcases hitless CCAP functionality with its leading E6000? Converged Edge Router. The ARRIS E6000 CER leads the industry in density and efficiency, providing the speed, availability, and scalability to meet the demands of tomorrow's multiscreen IP applications with today's hardware.

Its E6000 Converged Edge Router is realizing the promise of CCAP, sourcing both DOCSIS downstream channels and MPEG2-TS Video QAM channels from a single F-Connector. Its high-availability design (99.999%) is achieved via an integrated RF switch and spare module, which can perform hitless operation to maintain system services without interruption.

Delivering Actionable IntelligenceSubscribers are adding more and more connected devices to the home network?the average household has 2.5 set-tops and 3 TVs (Ref. SNL Kagan 2012; Nielsen 2011) and a growing collection of multiscreen devices. This presents a unique challenge for monitoring devices over managed and unmanaged networks. Service providers also need a better way to monitor all of the different delivery components to ensure their services are accessible to those devices, when consumers need them.

The ARRIS Service Assurance solution set delivers the intelligence that providers need to deliver a differentiated, proactive (vs. reactive) customer service model.

ARRIS Service Assurance combines remote visibility, diagnostics, and troubleshooting to provide end-to-end visibility across the entire network as well as consumer devices, so issues can be resolved before they become problems. Its scalable network and device management infrastructure delivers actionable intelligence today and anticipates the complex service and device ecosystem of tomorrow's smart, simple connected home.
