Arris has followed up its first retail-focused DOCSIS 3.1 product with a set of D3.1-powered gateway products for service providers.
New to the company’s D3.1 family are:
-The TG3442, a gigabit gateway with whole-home WiFi at an “entry-level price point.”
-The TG3452, a “performance-tier” telephony gateway with “carrier-grade video” over WiFi capabilities.
-The TG3462, a premium-tier telephony gateway that tacks on multiple IoT radios and 8x8 WiFi.
Arris did not disclose if the silicon supplier underpinning those products is Broadcom or Intel. Arris said it plans to submit its new line of D3.1 products for certification testing at CableLabs.
Arris’s first retail-facing D3.1 product, the SB8200, achieved certification earlier this year. Vendors with products that have also been certified for D3.1 include Humax, Sagemcom, Askey, CastleNet, Netgear, Technicolor and Ubee Interactive.
Arris (booth 1074) will show off its new wares at next week’s SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo in Philadelphia
Arris also announced the launch of the Touchstone Development Partner Program, which opens up the platform to software development partners. Initial partners include embedUR Systems and SamKnows. Arris will also provide services for testing, certifying, and deploying applications in service provider networks under that program.
