ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS) has introduced two gateway devices - the NVG578 and NVG558, one for PON fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and the other for fixed wireless.

The NVG578 customizable passive optical network (PON) gateway is designed to support GPON, as well as XGS-PON and NG-PON2 speeds of up to 10 Gbps symmetrical. The gateway is designed to deliver whole-home gigabit WiFi, with options to offer 802.11ac and upgrade to 802.11ax in both dual-band and tri-band configurations. Optional IoT radio support is also available.

The NVG558 fixed wireless gateway supports triple-play services via 4G LTE and 3.5 GHz CBRS. It's also designed to support future 5G services.

The NVG558 and NVG578 both offer Docker container support and support for ARRIS' HomeAssure WiFi solution.

"Service providers are evolving their networks to deliver today's high-bandwidth experiences while preparing for tomorrow's multi-gigabit services. We designed the ARRIS NVG578 and NVG558 broadband platforms to simplify that process. They offer unprecedented flexibility to support smart-home devices; video experiences like UHD streaming, gaming, VR and AR; and a full range of next-generation services," said Larry Robinson, president, Customer Premises Equipment, ARRIS. "Service providers can trust ARRIS's leadership in PON, our scalable broadband platforms, and our industry-proven firmware to build a foundation for the future that delivers secure and reliable services today."
