SUWANEE, Ga., June 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's mobile, on-demand culture of communications and entertainment across multiple screens is significantly impacting cable operators' network design and subscriber experience needs. ARRIS (Nasdaq: ARRS) will demonstrate its superior capability to address those needs in its booth #1415 and in "The Park" at NCTA's The Cable Show in Chicago, June 14-16, 2011.

ARRIS will showcase how it makes next-generation network distribution and communications easy for cable operators by supplying significantly increased capacity and a seamless migration path between legacy service delivery and next-generation IP networks. Live demonstrations include:

  • Industry-leading DOCSIS® 3.0 broadband solutions designed to support tomorrow's IP video networks while providing a superior customer experience today, including:
