Arris to Resell Ceon Provisioning Suite
Arris Group Inc. has agreed to resell Ceon Corp.'s "It's On" software application suite, which provisions broadband service elements such as order management and activation.
Arris said it will add Ceon's software to its "Cornerstone Cable Provisioning System 2000" and "Arris Subscriber Management Solution" products, which handle provisioning of voice and data services.
Ceon claimed the It's On provisioning platform enables cable operators to lower deployment costs by as much as 50 percent.
As part of the deal, Arris will also resell Ceon's "Intelligent Provisioning Manager," which accepts and validates service orders sent via an operator's network.
