New product from ARRIS: Whole Home Solution Media Gateway
Company ARRIS announced that its Whole Home Solution Media Gateway will be offered by Oregon headquartered Major Sponsoring Organization BendBroadband throughout its network. The product consists of the ARRIS Media Gateway, a unified multi-services platform that delivers integrated multimedia entertainment for home, as well as ARRIS Media Players connected to each television.
The Whole Home Solution ensures a lower cost-per-household alternative to classical cable set-top boxes, E-MTA's, Cable Modems and wireless Wi-Fi routers. The solution contains a tailored gateway providing multimedia entertainment options such as two lines of carrier-grade VoIP comms, broadcast and narrowcast video, video on demand, DOCSIS(R) 3.0 high-speed data, as well as Internet over-the-top and media sharing of user-generated content. The ARRIS Media Gateway includes a 6-tuner, multi-room HD DVR with 500 GB HDD storage and 4-port Ethernet home networking router with MoCA(R) 1.1+ home networking technology and optional 802.11n Wi-Fi. It supports DLNA(TM) for connectivity with subscriber-owned DLNA appliances across the home network and CableCARD(TM) conditional access. Once integrated with the ARRIS ConvergeMedia(TM) Management system's flexible multi-screen architecture, the Gateway ensures an enhanced On Demand experience that serves both traditional set-tops and sophisticated IP enabled devices.

"We are very excited to be able to offer our customers so much in such a powerful solution," said BendBroadband CEO Amy Tykeson. "The ARRIS Whole Home Solution delivers broadcast, On Demand, over-the-top and user-generated content, whole home DVR, high speed data, Wi-Fi and primary line voice - all easily controlled through one simple remote and a customized on screen user interface. This abundance of functionality in one solution lets us offer an expanded level of service while lowering the cost and complexity of household access." "The ARRIS Whole Home Solution is a disruptive technology solution that will accelerate the transition of content delivery to an all-IP paradigm," said ARRIS Broadband Communication Systems President Bruce McClelland. "We are very happy to be working with BendBroadband, our first announced Media Gateway and Media Player customer on this innovative approach to charting a new direction in personalized customer experience."
