VTR GlobalCom S.A. (VTR), Chile's largest multi-channel television provider, and a leading provider of broadband internet and residential voice services, Wednesday announced it has chosen ARRIS Group's E6000 Converged Edge Router (CER) to grow its network and offer enhanced high-speed broadband services.
ARRIS, a global innovator in IP, video and broadband technology, said that the edge router platform that is based on Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) specification will enable VTR to optimize IP content delivery and cost-effectively deploy DOCSIS®, PacketCable™, DSG/ADSG, and PacketCable Multimedia (PCMM™) services.
The new solution reduces VTR's operating expenditures with industry-leading rack space, power, and cooling efficiencies, and a 'wire-once' architecture that reduces the need for re-cabling in the data center, added ARRIS.
"Chile's consumers are demanding more content, at faster speeds and on more connected devices than ever. The ARRIS E6000 allows us to meet this growing appetite for content, while providing our fastest broadband speeds. ARRIS's CCAP platform also delivers immediate operational savings and the option to scale to future consumer entertainment desires."
- Dale Bassen, chief technology officer, VTR
"VTR came to us with two goals: attract and retain customers with super-fast broadband speeds, and deliver these services using less rack space and power," VTR selected our E6000 CER for its ability to achieve both at the same time. Now, they've joined a growing list of global service providers that have made the same choice to realize operational savings today while preparing for the future."
