KDG Hits 4.7 Gbps with ARRIS Gear

Kabel Deutschland in Germany has successfully field tested the combination of a EuroDOCSIS 3.0-based ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS) C4 CMTS and 12 ARRIS Touchstone CM820S cable modems to deliver 4.7 Gbps of aggregated data throughput in the downstream. The tests were conducted on a real cable plant at a school in the city of Schwerin, Germany. KDG recently upgraded Schwerin's cable plant to 862 MHz, and the 4.7 Gbps field test was based on the use of currently available standards, technology and hardware. Kabel Deutschland has been an ARRIS CMTS customer since 2007.
