Arris Donates Gear to Georgia Tech


Arris Group Inc. said Friday that it has donated a complete Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification 2.0-certified next-generation voice and high-speed-data solution to the Georgia Centers for Advanced Telecommunications Technology for use in the Georgia Tech Broadband Institute.

The donation consists of a DOCSIS 2.0-qualified “Cadant C3” cable-modem-termination system, DOCSIS 2.0-certified “Touchstone 402P” embedded multimedia-terminal adapters and “Touchstone 450” cable modems.

When configured, faculty and student members of the Broadband Institute will be able to conduct a variety of projects with the equipment, the first of which will include peer-to-peer communications and voice-over-Internet-protocol communications over a symmetrical DOCSIS link, the vendor added.

“We are extremely grateful to be the recipient of this gift from Arris,” GTBI director and GCATT executive director Nikil Jayant said in a prepared statement. “It will greatly help us in our broadband and communications research addressing future home applications, including seamless services for voice and data."
