Arris said TDS Telecommunications (TDS) has tapped its Moxi Whole Home Solution in 11 markets in the southwestern U.S., with plans to launch it to another eight markets in the region before the end of the year.
Arris said the platform will be available to TDS customers in the following areas: Colorado (Arvada, Estes Park, Fort Collins, Fort Carson, and Woodland Park); New Mexico (Alamogordo, Carlsbad, Eunice, Hobbs, Lovington, Ruidoso, and Truth or Consequences); Texas (Alpine, Fort Stockton, and Seminole); Utah (Mesquite, Nevada; and Cedar City and St George).
Madison, Wis.-based TDS operates OneNeck IT Solutions LLC, TDS Baja Broadband, and Bend Broadband, which has been using Arris’s Whole Home Solution for years.
Arris’s Whole Home Solution features a line of media gateways and client/player devices that are tied together with its Moxi user interface, elements that Arris originally obtained in 2009 when it put up $20 million to acquire Paul Allen’s Digeo. The latest version of Arris’s Whole Home solution features an integrated DOCSIS 3.0 modem and WiFi, and support for an apps market that enables pay TV partners to blend traditional TV with OTT content. WideOpenWest, for example, is using it to offer Netflix on its Arris-powered platform.
"Our subscribers want high-quality entertainment when they want it and where they want it," said Shane West, VP of marketing and product development at TDS. "ARRIS is our key partner in developing personalized, TV everywhere services that will delight our subscribers, differentiate our offerings, and provide more options for monetizing our services."
