ARRIS Gateway Upgrade Enables Dual Stack Broadband For Millions

Stock quotes in this article: ARRS

SUWANEE, Ga., Nov. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  ARRIS Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARRS), a global leader in entertainment and communications solutions, today announced that it has recently released a software upgrade that has enabled IPv6 support for more than 4 million ARRIS TG852/862 wireless gateways currently deployed across the Comcast broadband network – helping make Xfinity Internet one of the largest native IPv6 deployments of Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) worldwide.

ARRIS wireless gateways facilitate the seamless enablement of IPv6 broadband, which in turn allows operators like Comcast to plan its transition and deploy IPv6 support incrementally.  IPv6 enabled broadband allows consumers to enjoy uninterrupted Internet service as the transition to IPv6 continues around the globe.

"Comcast has been working for over four years laying the technical foundation and paving the way for a smooth transition towards IPv6," said John Brzozowski, Comcast Fellow and Chief IPv6 Architect. "Leveraging CPE that is software upgradeable and that can handle both IP versions has been critical to our success, and our extensive IPv6 rollout on CPE complements our DOCSIS 3.0 based Cable Modem Termination Systems, which ARRIS also develops and supplies to Comcast."

"Today's IPv6 announcement represents one of the many ways that ARRIS and Comcast are committed to addressing the challenges of the future of IP," said Larry Robinson, President of Customer Premises Equipment, ARRIS. "ARRIS has taken a proactive approach to preparing our customers and end consumers for tomorrow's technology, and we continue to provide leadership in communications and entertainment on a global stage."

As the pool of IPv4 addresses approaches exhaustion, service providers around the world are facing the inevitable transition to IPv6. Comcast and ARRIS have worked proactively to offer IPv6 solutions, by default, to ensure that the introduction of IPv6 support is seamless to end-users.
