Arris Group has picked MaxLinear's full-spectrum capture tuners for a new family of DOCSIS 3.0 consumer-premises equipment that would let cable operators deliver nearly 1 Gigabit per second downstream bandwidth.
At the IBC2012 show in Amsterdam this week, Arris is demonstrating its next-generation DOCSIS 3.0 products using the MaxLinear MxL265 and MxL267 receivers. The demo will feature Arris 16- and 24-channel-bonded devices delivering speeds up to 840 Mbps.
Arris is targeting delivery of a 1-Gbps DOCSIS gateway device, based on the Intel Puma 6 Media Gateway chip, in 2013.
"Our upcoming series of 16- and 24-channel DOCSIS CPE offers the high levels of quality and performance that our customers always expect from us," Derek Elder, senior vice president and general manager of Arris's CPE business unit. "The MxL265 and MxL267 help to meet those high standards, and the level of integration achieved in the chips plays a big part in making our next-generation products competitive in the market."
In a demo earlier this year, German MSO Kabel Deutschland field-tested DOCSIS 3.0 equipment from Arris Group to deliver an aggregate of 4.7 Gbps of downstream bandwidth, using a EuroDOCSIS 3.0-based Arris C4 cable modem termination system and 12 of the vendor's Touchstone CM820S cable modems.
