Arris to Distribute Ellacoya IP-Management System


Arris Group Inc. will distribute Ellacoya Networks’ Internet-protocol service-management systems to cable operators worldwide beginning immediately under terms of a deal announced Tuesday.

As a result of the deal, Arris is able to offer broadband operators a solution that provides visibility into and management of their high-speed-data networks.

Ellacoya provides both the hardware and the management software tools to measure, analyze and manage traffic by application and activity. Arris has already successfully installed Ellacoya's system with several North and South American cable operators.

The Ellacoya system consists of its "4000-" and "16000-series" IP switches, along with its "Service Logic Software," a central point of configuration, policy distribution and integration with other network and back-office systems.
