The new architecture is backwards-compatible and delivers both video and broadband services from a unified platform, providing said ARRIS important Capex and Opex savings.

The R-PHY deployment in Aarhus is the result of an ongoing strategic collaboration between Stofa and ARRIS to enable Gigabit broadband, Ultra HD TV, streaming, and digital services across all of Stofa's sites in Denmark. The technology is designed to enable Stofa to use more efficiently network media with service speeds of 1Gbps and beyond. Stofa video services will be able to stream over the network while avoiding impact to customers' headline broadband speeds.

“Our partnership with ARRIS enabled us to envision a long-term future for our cable network using DOCSIS 3.1 and R-PHY technology,” explained Stofa CTO Jacob Zentio. “Today, we're making history, pioneering a new era of Gigabit services using next-generation distributed access architectures. Our deployment in Aarhus offers immediate service level upgrades for our local subscribers, while increasing our network's efficiency and capacity. This is just the beginning of our network's evolution, and we look forward to our continued work with ARRIS to create Denmark's network of the future.”
