Arris reorganizes after C-Cor deal
In addition to naming a leadership team, Arris said the company would be organized into three product-focused organizations:
* The Broadband Communications Group will include all DOCSIS-based headend and customer premises products. This group will include Arris’ CMTS, Universal EdgeQAM and Touchstone CPE products. It will be led by Bruce McClelland, previously Arris’ VP and GM of CPE, who has been promoted to president of broadband communications.
* The Access, Transport and Supplies Group will incorporate the current C-Cor access and transport business and the current Arris Telewire supply business. This group will be led by John Caezza, previously C-Cor’s president of broadband systems solutions, who will assume the title of president of access transport and supplies.
* The Media and Communications Systems Group will include the C-Cor OSS software and on-demand businesses, as well as Arris’ fixed/mobile convergence products. This group will be led by Bryant Isaacs, previously Arris’ president of new business ventures, who now becomes president of media and communications systems.
Supporting these three product groups will be a sales and marketing organization that combines the teams of both Arris and C-Cor. This group will be led by Ron Coppock, Arris’ president of worldwide sales.
Jim Lakin, previously president of Arris’ broadband products, becomes president of advanced technology and services, a new organization created to coordinate the areas of major synergy among the product groups.
