Arris said today that four service providers in the Czech Republic have deployed its DOCSIS 3.0 wideband modems and cable modem termination system (CMTS).

The companies deploying DOCSIS 3.0 are: Elsat s.r.o., BKS Capital Partners, Self Servis and Kabelova Televize Koprivnice. Arris said approximately 93 percent of the Czech Republic's 1.2 million homes passed by cable are served by Elsat, BKS, Self Servis and UPC Czech Republic.

The Arris DOCSIS 3.0 CMTS platform consists of the C4 CMTS and WBM760B wideband modems.

"We are most pleased to be able to provide our Czech Republic customers with the most reliable CMTS solution for their growing subscriber needs," said Arris’ senior vice president of EMEA sales, Claudio Cerioli.

Arris completed the deal with reseller LICA s.r.o., which is headquartered in Nymburk.
