At the NCTA's INTX show in Boston, ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS) is showcasing new additions and extensions to its CCAP-based E6000 Converged Edge Router (CER). The upgrades include a new 10G EPON Fiber Module, Router Switch Module 2 (RSM-2) and UCAM-2 module to support DOCSIS 3.1 migration and multi-gigabit speeds.

The 10G EPON Fiber Module and the Router System Module 2 (RSM-2) are both being shown for the first time in Boston. The high-density 10G EPON solution is designed for multi-gigabit symmetrical service delivery with the E6000 chassis. The RSM-2 is designed to increase the E6000 network-side interface capacity and its packet forwarding capacity. The UCAM-2 is designed to provide increases in both DOCSIS 3.0 upstream channel capacity per service group and the ability to support DOCSIS 3.1 in the upstream.

ARRIS is also showcasing the doubling of downstream DOCSIS 3.1 support with the current, first-generation DCAM via a software-only upgrade, as well as convergence of video into the platform with traditional MPEG digital video and IP video. The company also has a static display of its planned Remote PHY (R-PHY) solution for the E6000 CER.
