Turksat Selects Arris’ E6000 CER for Future Broadband Services
[Via Satellite 09-17-2015] Turksat has selected Arris Group’s E6000 Converged Edge Router (CER) to prepare for future IP interactivity and higher speed broadband services. The router will support today’s Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) requirements as well as the company’s transition to a Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP). Turksat will be able to reach broadband speeds of up to 500Mbps and 1 Gbps while future-proofing its headend for service expansion.
Turksat manages and operates three satellites — Turksat 2A, Turksat 3A, and Turksat 4A— and has its next satellite, Turksat 4B, slated to launch on a Proton rocket in October. The company provides cable and wireless broadcasting, high-speed Internet, and Direct-to-Home (DTH) broadcasting services. Additional satellites are planned for integration into the operator’s growing satellite fleet.
