Arris’ D5 Universal Edge QAM’s capacity will increase by 50 percent, from 48 QAMs per 2RU chassis to 72 QAMs per 2RU chassis.

The increase - achieved with a software upgrade to the D5 and the WAN modules - is part of Arris’ D5 planned release 2.3, which will be available for shipment later this year. With the improved density, an operator can choose between 4 QAM channels per RF port or 6 QAM channels per RF port.

The D5 UEQ is designed to support QAM sharing, VOD, SDV and broadcast today, and it is ready for M-CMTS and DOCSIS 3.0 functionality with a software upgrade, the company said.
