SUWANEE, Ga., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ARRIS Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARRS)
will display the latest platform in its cable edge portfolio, the ARRIS E6000™
Converged Edge Router (E6000 CER) at the China Content Broadcasting Network
Exhibition (CCBN2013). ARRIS will also highlight the features and
functionality of its Switched Digital Video (SDV) solution, already integrated
in the local China Cable ecosystem, in booth #2302, in Hall 2. The portfolio
helps cable operators prepare for CCAP, maximize bandwidth and add operational
simplicity, allowing them to better meet changing subscriber demands. The
event takes place from March 21 - 23, 2013 in the China International
Exhibition Center (CIEC) in Beijing.

The CCAP-capable E6000 CER continues the highly successful legacy of the ARRIS
C4® CMTS and delivers new levels of density and cost-effectiveness in a
simple, robust and integrated architecture. Like the C4 CMTS, the E6000 CER
provides a high availability, high performance solution with unmatched
scalability and supports a fully redundant design with no single point of
failure, as well as offering hitless fail-over, hot-swapping of cards and
field-deployment ready IPv6. Operators can mix and match ARRIS cable edge
products to create the optimum network configuration for deploying tomorrow's
services with today's hardware.

The ARRIS E6000 CER allows operators to:

  oMaximize revenue off a single chassis, with one of the highest densities
    per rack unit available, to deliver more services at faster speeds
  oIncrease subscriber satisfaction and retention with a self-healing design
    that decreases outages
  oPreserve capital investment with flexible platforms that offer 'wire once'
    architecture with software upgradeability and easy mid-plane design

All elements of the E6000 CER are redundant, either N+1 or 1+1, and all are
hot-swappable. Designed for 99.999% system availability, the E6000 CER has a
self-healing architecture that maintains system services without interruption.

ARRIS has the most deployed SDV solution in the world, spanning over 40
million households. ARRIS SDV is based on its CVEx™ control plane and family
of Universal Edge QAMs: BEQ™, D5® and MSP. SDV provides an economical
alternative for reclaiming bandwidth on the RF spectrum as it dynamically
broadcasts linear channels only when actively viewed by a subscriber. This
allows cable operators to add a large number of additional HD channels to
their lineup as well as grow other applications like VOD and HSD in the freed
spectrum.

Additionally, ARRIS will showcase its industry leading portfolio of end-to-end
video, voice and high-speed data solutions that have been widely deployed by
major cable operators and telco carriers worldwide. To arrange meetings or
