Insight Taps Arris for VoIP


Arris Group Inc. announced that it is selling “Cadant C4” cable-modem-termination systems equipped with cable-access modules to Insight Communications Co. Inc. for its voice-over-Internet-protocol rollouts.

Insight already uses Arris gear for its circuit-switched telephony rollouts.

"We especially liked the C4's multiple elements of redundancy, including hitless RF sparing and control complex redundancy, and its ability to perform hitless software upgrades without dropping a call," Insight chief technology officer Charlie Dietz said in a prepared statement.

The cable access modules include two downstream and 12 upstream channels.
