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.
