Espial has completed its acquisition of Arris’ Whole Home Solution (WHS) platform, the end-to-end, cloud-hosted video service that it agreed to buy in July.

Espial said that the deal will enable service providers to quickly meet increasing consumer demand for next generation video services.

The acquisition includes the WHS software engineering and operations teams in Kirkland, Washington, the WHS Network Operations Center, and two geo-redundant data centres.

Ron Miller will move from Arris to lead the business as general manager for Espial.

“WHS expands our solution portfolio with a cloud-hosted video-as-a-service platform that is complementary to and will leverage Espial’s current solutions for next-generation IP video services,” said Espial CEO, Jaison Dolvane.

“Espial gains a broad base of new customer relationships and further scales our world-class integration, operations, and software development teams. We look forward to collaborating with Arris to enhance the Whole Home Solution, strengthen support, and expand the customer base going forward.”

Terms and conditions of the deal were not disclosed.
