Arris and European broadband equipment supplier Vector signed an agreement of cooperation to jointly market their access and transport product lines to European cable operators.
The two companies said their goal was to create a portfolio of HFC, RFoG and EPON products that both sales teams will promote in their respective markets to "assure a more thorough and focused response to European cable operators' architectural needs and challenges."
Arris and Vector have worked with each other before, with Vector serving as an Arris value-added reseller of all of its products in Europe, including voice, high-speed data and video service-enabling solutions.
"This represents the next step in an ongoing and mutually beneficial relationship between Arris and Vector," said Arris access and transport president John Caezza. "We are constantly looking for ways to better anticipate our customers' network challenges and rapidly bring them complete solutions to match those challenges."
