CableMatrix, ARRIS hook up PCMM gear
CableMatrix Technologies  and ARRIS  said they have integrated equipment that is key to PacketCable Multimedia (PCMM), a CableLabs  spec that injects QoS into an array of IP-based apps and services.
In this case, ARRIS has matched up its DOCSIS 2.0-qualified C3 cable modem termination system (CMTS) with CableMatrix's policy management platform, which includes a policy server and an application manager.
The combo will enable operators to provide QoS for voice, video and gaming apps.
Targeted to small- and mid-sized operators, ARRIS's C3 complements its flagship CMTS, the Cadant C4.
