Altice Strengthens Partnership with ARRIS to Deliver Next-Gen Video Services in the US and Europe

  • Strategic global collaboration to broaden Altice’s leadership in the connected home

SUWANEE, Ga. — Global telecommunications company Altice has expanded its partnership with ARRIS International, plc (NASDAQ: ARRS) to deploy next-generation 4K HDR set-tops across its global footprint, in the US and Europe, starting in 2018.

The multinational deployment represents a growing global partnership between ARRIS and Altice, combining ARRIS’s video expertise with Altice’s vision for delivering the next-generation entertainment to its subscribers around the world. Altice-owned Portugal Telecom selected ARRIS’s set-tops to deliver its MEO 4K TV service across Portugal. And Altice and ARRIS collaborate to deploy ARRIS’s E6000™ Converged Edge Router in France, the US, and the Dominican Republic to enable new Gigabit services.

“We’ve invested in our ability to deliver leading CPE at scale, and our growing partnership with Altice is a testament to ARRIS’s unmatched expertise in helping the world’s service providers deliver the next era of entertainment services. The 4K HDR set-tops we’re developing with Altice showcase the evolution of the video and will offer exciting entertainment services to millions of Altice subscribers across the US and Europe,” said Larry Robinson, ARRIS President, CPE.

“We expanded our strategic partnership with ARRIS to match the scale of our vision for tomorrow’s entertainment,” said Bruno Zebib, Altice Group CTO. “As Altice continues to grow and to usher in next-generation services for our subscribers around the world, we’re leveraging ARRIS’s expertise in the set-top evolution to meet demand for higher-definition viewing experiences. Our collaboration with ARRIS will reinforce our position as a pioneer in the global TV and services market.”
