Arris, Nortel Are Compatible

Arris Group Inc. said Thursday that it has successfully completed interoperability testing with Nortel Networks.

Arris said its PacketCable- and Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification 1.1-qualified "Cadant C4" cable-modem-termination system and "Touchstone" multimedia-terminal adapters were found to be compatible with Nortel’s PacketCable-qualified "Succession* Communication Server (CS) 2000" superclass soft-switch series.

The interoperability testing was conducted at both Arris’ lab in Duluth, Ga., and Nortel Networks’ lab in Ottawa, Ontario.
