SCTE-ISBE Cable-Tec Expo 2017 is upon us! It feels like only yesterday that we wrapped for SCTE 2016. So much has happened in the last 12 months, and our industry is evolving rapidly: the only constant is change.
The theme of this year's Expo - the Next Big... - is itself an indicator of that change and progress. It hints at the opportunity in front of all of us, and we are sure that everyone on the ground in Denver is going to walk away brimming with excitement for what's next.
ARRIS – Driving the Future of Communications and Entertainment
We know change; in fact, we've led a lot of it for our industry. The growing demands for bandwidth, services and experiences are creating new challenges and putting pressure on existing infrastructure. In response, ARRIS is designing and delivering state-of-the-art technologies, products and solutions that will enable the next-generation networks that service providers need to meet subscriber requirements.
We are developing broadband and Wi-Fi® technologies that connect consumers at multi-gigabit speeds. We are helping service providers unleash the power of cutting-edge platforms like Distributed Access Architectures to build better networks. We are investing in new technological areas, like CBRS, to reinforce our offering. And we are delivering new solutions that help service providers deliver the constant connectivity that their customers desire.
The future is coming fast, and ARRIS is always looking ahead.
