Today, we opened a new, multi-million dollar R&D and Operations center in Bangalore, India, dedicated to innovation for our customers worldwide.
The Ulsoor, Bangalore site – which houses a state-of-the-art lab and testing facilities – becomes ARRIS’s largest global development center outside of the US. It’s an IP creation hub that unites world-class engineers from the former ARRIS and Pace sites in the region (following ARRIS’s January 2016 acquisition of Pace). Now, they can more easily collaborate on the technology to drive the next era of broadband and video experiences—from Gigabit Internet to 4K TV, and Wi-Fi.
Our Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Bob Stanzione, inaugurated the facility with Kiran Gadi, Country Head and VP, Engineering for ARRIS India, in a ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning.
Take a look at our photos from the ceremony:
Today, we’re taking the wrapping paper off of our new family of SURFboard® RipCurrent™-enabled devices to give you a peek at the Future of Wi-Fi®.
Our engineers rethought the entire concept of home networking to bring you the fastest, most reliable connection, anywhere in your home—the Wi-Fi that you’ve always wanted. Our RipCurrent-enabled portfolio uses existing electrical lines wiring, smart software, and next-generation G.hn technology to dramatically improve your wireless router’s performance, completely eliminate dead zones, and put bandwidth hogs in their place.
And we’ve hidden all of this advanced technology under bright, clean curves, making every RipCurrent-enabled device an easy fit for today’s modern décor—no more antennas or black boxes to clutter your home.
Ready to rip? Let’s go!
In the future, dead zones are extinct. Movies don’t buffer. And your dog just set up your Wi-Fi® network with an app, in under five minutes.
Well, guess what. The Future of Wi-Fi is here (depending on your dog). It’s called SURFboard® with RipCurrent™ G.hn technology. And it doesn’t just work; it works better than anything else you’ve ever tried.
ARRIS SURFboard with RipCurrent G.hn technology is a new family of routers and extenders from future-loving geniuses who brought you digital TV and the first cable modem gateway. We rethought the entire concept of traditional home networking to solve all the little frustrating things that have plagued your Internet experience for years.
The SURFboard RipCurrent-enabled family transforms Wi-Fi in a unique way: with wires. Our system uses Gigabit home networking technology called G.hn to build a smarter network using your home’s existing wiring to create new hotspots, feed high-bandwidth devices, and lighten the load on your wireless network. As a result, we’ve drastically improved wireless router performance, helped completely eliminate dead zones, and put bandwidth hogs in their place.
“The reality is that everyone’s home is different, making it hard for any one router to provide a fast connection in every corner of every house,” said Bob Swanson, our VP of Retail Sales. “RipCurrent G.hn technology is the solution.”
Our new SURFboard RipCurrent-enabled portfolio works with our ARRIS SURFboard Manager app for iOS and Android to help you set up your network faster than you can walk your dog. And it lets you tailor your Wi-Fi to your exact needs. Ever better: our system will grow with you as those needs change, letting you add more range and bandwidth with additional extenders, so that the future of Wi-Fi stays in your home, for years to come.

Recently, ARRIS brought in teachers from all over the Philadelphia School District for a full-day survey course on tomorrow’s entertainment and communications technology.
We opened up our Horsham Customer Experience Center to host the Spring 2015 Philadelphia School Teacher Professional Development Day—giving local teachers a glimpse of how we help service providers bring new technology and experiences—like 4K, multiscreen, and high-speed broadband—to homes in the Philadelphia metro area.
Our own Global Services manager, Kim Andrews, volunteered the ARRIS Horsham campus for the event as a way to bring community educators up to speed on how a local technology leader is collaborating with its customers to Invent the Future for millions of people around the world—while offering some inspiration as to the kinds of jobs, innovation, and experiences that await local students.
“Our presentations included recommendations to energize the ‘conversations between teachers and students,’ ” said Kim. “And hopefully, they’ll jumpstart interest from students in the local tech industry.”
Today in the U.S., we celebrate our veterans and troops, and we recognize the advancements in technology that are bringing them closer to home and allowing them to share their stories from abroad. We often hear stories of soldiers meeting their newborn babies through Skype and Facetime, and how deployed parents overseas can read bedtime stories to their children face-to-face.
At ARRIS, we take great pride in building entertainment and communications solutions that connect millions of people to the Internet, all over the world. When we think of the crucial role that this technology plays in keeping our troops connected to their families, it makes our work even more rewarding.
Thank you to all our veterans and troops at home and abroad!
ARRIS invents the technology that brings entertainment and communications to millions of people, all around the world.
If you watch TV or use the Internet, chances are you’re using our technology. We’re behind the services that you get from the world’s leading providers, and we’re collaborating with them to invent the future, every day.
But from time to time, we still get the question: Who is ARRIS?
Here’s the answer, in the words of the people of ARRIS, our employees…
