Arris Group has updated its CMTS software to improve performance for control plane-related tasks, including IPDR (Internet Protocol Detail Record), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and Command Line Interface (CLI).
The update, Release 8.1, also increases IPv6 route scaling, provides additional DSG feature support and improves support for Lawful Intercept (LI) applications in Europe.
The new software works in conjunction with a new hardware module, the System Control Module 3 (SCM). The capability is integrated in Arris’ new CMTSs and can be added to installed C4 CMTS and C4cT CMTS products.
"We are pleased to announce this next step in the continuing evolution and upgrade of the C4 CMTS platform," said Arris vice president of product management Todd Kessler. "We want our customers to be able to take advantage of its new functionality and features to offer their subscribers greater reliability and service. At the same time, we constantly strive to reduce their total cost of C4 CMTS ownership."
