Bell deploys Arris STBs in Canada

Bell's deployment of Ericsson's MediaFirst middleware platform paves the way for the deployment. MediaFirst supports multiscreen, TV everywhere, 4K and IPTV. Arris’s STBs will support 4K HDR capabilities, fast 802.11ac and 4x4 Wi-Fi.

"Arris is a trusted Bell partner in supporting our delivery of the future of TV," said Rizwan Jamal, president, Bell Residential Services and Small Business. "Fibe TV became Canada's No 1 TV service by offering an outstanding viewing experience that's both personalised and on-demand. Together with ARRIS, we look forward to taking Fibe TV to the next level as we deliver the latest 4K experience to our customers."

"We are proud to be the launch partner for Bell's implementation of MediaFirst for Fibe TV, a fast-growing IPTV service with more than 1.5 million customers in Canada," said Larry Robinson, president of Arris CPE. "This deployment further demonstrates that ARRIS is the leading technology provider when it comes to enabling ground-breaking television services."

The ARRIS Global Services team will provide integration services and customisation for the user experience.
