Luxembourg’s cable incumbent, Eltrona has partnered with ARRIS to launch the first ultra-high-speed 1GBps broadband service in the country.

The Eltrona network uses ARRIS R-PHY Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) technology to full advantage of DOCSIS 3.1. By virtualizing and decentralizing its network’s headend functions, Eltrona can achieve greater network capacity and higher network speeds.

Eltrona selected the ARRIS E6000 CCAP, E6000 Core, R-PHY shelf, and TG3442 Wireless Telephony Gateways to complete the DOCSIS 3.1 network between its CMTS (cable modem termination system) and subscribers’ premises.

The upgraded delivery network also enables Eltrona to backhaul mobile data in preparation for 5G rollouts across the region.

Paul Denzle, CEO, Eltrona
We implemented ARRIS solutions across our entire network to take full advantage of our existing investments while building the capacity and flexibility to deliver a new crop of data-intensive services, including 5G. 

Dan Whalen, President, Network & Cloud, ARRIS
Our latest deployment enables Eltrona to realize the benefits of DOCSIS 3.1 and DAA while building on its leadership position with new gigabit services. Together, we’ve ensured that Eltrona continues to stay at the forefront of Luxembourg’s broadband market.
