US-based hardware vendor ARRIS has announced that South Korea’s SK Broadband is deploying its E6000 Converged Edge Router (CER), which will enable the operator to launch it a new 1Gbps broadband service, as well as other ‘enhanced entertainment experiences’.

Commenting on the development, Richard Kim, SK Broadband’s team leader of Network Planning HQ and Access Network Engineering Team, noted: ‘As we prepare to launch our new 1Gbps data service we looked for a solution that can scale to deliver these higher speeds, but with an eye on cost and space requirements … We have a long-standing relationship with ARRIS, and we can trust ARRIS to deliver… the E6000 meets our needs today and has the scalability we need for the future.’
