Once upon a time, TV was analogue with a finite amount of content. Now it's a personalized box of tricks powered by IP video, 4K content and lightning fast broadband speeds.
It’s an exciting time for in-home entertainment and connectivity, and ARRIS will be at Broadcast Asia in Singapore on 31 May to 3 June to discuss how this progression came about, the technology driving it and what it means for service providers.
TV is changing. We're already seeing the onset of the connected entertainment revolution. But what will tomorrow's service offerings look like and how do operators manage the transition? ARRIS's Solutions Architect for Asia, Per-Anders Josefsson will be chairing a session in the conference to explore this (31 May @ 10.55am). Many talk about how streaming services will eat the lunch of traditional broadcasters. What we see, however, is a converged world where the two sit side by side. IP delivery is becoming the common denominator that sends video to different types of devices, anytime, anywhere.
It's vital then, that connectivity is a priority and not an afterthought. Home bandwidth demands will continue to increase, but the good news is that the technology to meet that need is available today. Advances in access network technology like DOCSIS 3.1® and G.fast will deliver gigabit speeds to more consumers than ever before.
At Broadcast Asia, ARRIS will showcase the technology that will accelerate the delivery of new services. On the connectivity side of things, we'll have demonstrations of a DOCSIS 3.1 network and CPE solutions. Accompanying this will be a 1.2GHz cable plant for delivering multi-gigabit services to the home.
In our suite at the show, we'll also showcase ARRIS's broadband gateways and set-tops for cable, telco and satellite operators to deliver next-gen consumer experiences including 4K video over Wi-Fi. Plus, we'll display our cloud solutions. Visitors will see how these solutions can optimize and manage the delivery of linear and stored IP video to set-tops and consumer devices.
Customers are demanding faster broadband speeds, Wi-Fi without limits and Ultra HD video. At Broadcast Asia, we'll show how providers can invest for the future and build consumer loyalty in changing times.
The ARRIS meeting suite at Broadcast Asia is Melati 4010A, Level 4.
