Arris products are IPv6-ready

Cable TV technology provider Arris has announced the IPv6 readiness of its C4 CMTS, supporting EuroDOCSIS 3.0 features, and its Touchstone TG862S wideband cable modems.

Arris said it had successfully demonstrated interoperability for IPv6 services over a weeklong period in the test labs of Excentis in Ghent, Belgium.

“The Cable industry has been preparing for the important and necessary transition from IPv4 to IPv6 for some time now and, due to our members’ rapid growth, Cable Europe Labs has increased our focus on validating technical solution and transition strategies,” said Peter Percosan, managing director of Cable Europe Labs.  The recent interoperability event hosted by Excentis, successfully demonstrated the great strides made by key vendor partners.  It is a major industry milestone.”

The Arris CMTS and CPE products showed IPv6 interoperability in the areas of ED2.0+IPv6, ED3.0 and eRouter. Several IPv6 migration techniques, like Dual-Stack Lite, NAT64/DNS64 and NAT444, were also successfully demonstrated.
