US media company Liberty Global has deployed the E6000 converged edge router (CER) from US technology provider Arris Group at its German subsidiary Unitymedia Kabel BW, enabling the cable operator to deliver 1GB capacity to its customers for enhanced broadband data and entertainment services.

The Arris E6000 CER is a converged cable access platform (CCAP) that has been deployed worldwide and now provides service to over two million subscribers. Consumers demand more content, at faster speeds and on more connected devices. According to Arris, the CCAP platform enables cable operators to scale to these challenges while meeting the demand for more high quality content anytime, anywhere and on any device.

"Arris and Liberty Global have a long-term relationship during which we have deployed Arris broadband infrastructure solutions at Unitymedia Kabel BW to efficiently grow our broadband services and stay at the forefront of our market," said Colin Büchner, chief network officer at Liberty Global. "The E6000 CER enables us to expand our services to a whole new level by providing large increases in capacity in a cost-effective manner."
