Following their recent win with WideOpenWest Networks as a customer for their Moxi whole-home system, ARRIS has announced adding the small MSO Buckeye CableSystem to their customer list. Buckeye CableSystem serves greater Toledo, OH, Sandusky, OH and Southeast Michigan, so they’re a fairly small provider, outside of the top 25 MSOs.
In addition to the ARRIS Whole Home Solution, Buckeye is deploying the next generation ConvergeMedia video on demand (VOD) platform, and ServAssure Advanced network monitoring solution. So they’re bringing ARRIS in throughout their organization. That’s an area ARRIS has an advantage over TiVo. They can offer an end-to-end solution for small MSOs from a single vendor. This is the kind of small operator that TiVo pursues via their partnership with Evolution Digital and Clearleap. But a multi-vendor solution is rarely as clean.
