Just launched in February, the ARRIS Whole Home Solution combines several different components to make one very useful, and Diamonds-worthy, offering. Proclaiming it a “revolutionary platform,” the judging panelists were captivated by the solution’s integrated approach to home multimedia, while easily interfacing with broadband networks. “This covers it all – DVR, MoCA, DLNA,” noted one judge.
The solution consists of:
- Gateway – The hub of the ARRIS Whole Home Solution, the gateway integrates DOCSIS 3.0 high-speed data; six MPEG-2 tuners; whole-home HD DVR with hard drive from recording storage; Ethernet home networking router, MoCA 1.1; CableCARD security; two lines of carrier-class telephony; and a comprehensive industry standard DLNA server to personalize the experience.
- Media Player – ARRIS Media Players are the subscriber-facing component of the solution, connecting directly to the Media Gateway and allowing subscribers to view and record broadcast, pay and on-demand TV, Internet services, and play content from any DLNA-enabled device in the home.
- Portal – The ARRIS Portal provides the back-office support for the video services delivered by the solution.
- Moxi User Interface – The interface offers an integrated, comprehensive suite of features for consumers during the delivery of digital home entertainment and allows instant access to current and future program listings, through features like remote Internet scheduling, Flickr and Rhapsody access, games and home computer access.
