SUWANEE, Ga. — ARRIS Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARRS) announced that Service Electric Cable TV and Communications selected ARRIS for their new SE NEXT Entertainment Platform. Consisting of the ARRIS Whole Home Solution with an available MS4000™ Media Streamer, Service Electric now enables their subscribers throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey the ability to stream live and recorded content throughout the home and on the go.

The ARRIS Whole Home Solution includes a family of Media Gateway and Player products, offering Service Electric’s customers a centralized gateway that provides simultaneous use of feature-rich video and telephony services, 6-tuner HD multi-room DVR, Wi-Fi®, DOCSIS® 3.0 data rates, and media-sharing capabilities available through an intuitive user interface.

By enabling in-home and remote streaming to mobile devices, the ARRIS Whole Home Solution and MS4000 lets Service Electric’s subscribers enjoy their media, their way.
