ARRIS Global Services and DCX4220 Set-Top Enable Rapid Deployment of Cablevisión's Flow TV Service Across Argentina
Custom DCX4220 powers new IP, multiscreen, and nDVR entertainment

SUWANEE, Ga., Sept. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ARRIS International plc (NASDAQ: ARRS) today announced that its Global Services team deployed custom ARRIS DCX4220 set-tops in an end-to-end system to power Cablevisión's new Flow TV experience across Argentina.

Flow TV leverages the DCX4220's hybrid IP design to integrate all of Cablevisión's traditional TV channels and on-demand content with a new user interface—allowing consumers to view content anytime, from multiple locations, on their mobile phones, tablets, PCs, or TVs. ARRIS designed the custom DCX4220 hybrid IP set-top specifically to enable Flow subscribers to access personalized streaming, QAM, and IP content in a true multiscreen experience—including recording to the cloud, viewing on multiple devices, and personalized suggestions for multiple user profiles.

ARRIS Global Services was instrumental in enabling the countrywide deployment. Its Systems Integration team provided end-to-end integration of the customized solution, working alongside Cablevisión and software developer Minerva. The team created the high-level design for the entire system, including the user interface. The ARRIS Systems Integration team led a multi-disciplinary taskforce from several companies to create a detailed design and to build and test the entire solution, which is now in commercial service. The Global Services team helped build important pieces of the content delivery solution and test entire system. It is currently assisting with network operations inside Cablevisión's Network Operations Center

"Cablevisión's ongoing collaboration with ARRIS has helped us rapidly deploy cutting-edge services that anticipate our subscribers' needs. We leveraged ARRIS's set-top and end-to-end integration expertise to bring Flow to life," said Guillermo Paez, Product Manager, Cablevisión. We're confident that our technology investment and close collaboration with ARRIS offers a scalable pathway for continuing to deliver the future of TV to Argentina."

"We brought our global expertise and scale to Cablevisión to deliver a next-generation entertainment experience that will transform the way people watch TV across Argentina," said German Iaryczower, SVP of Sales, Caribbean and Latin America, ARRIS. "Our seamless collaboration with both Cablevisión and Minerva reflects our leadership in the large-scale integration of advanced technology and software services that's driving similar success in deployments around the world."
