ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS) has introduced its Managed Business Networks, a set of business services solutions aimed at creating new revenue streams for service providers.

ARRIS Managed Business Networks is part of ARRIS Professional Services. It combines expertise, processes and tools to help service providers deliver value-added enterprise services in verticals like small-to-medium businesses (SMB), education, hospitality, venues and multiple dwelling units (MDUs).

Managed Business Networks offers network hosting, customer acquisition (discovery, design and scoping), field services (survey, installation, verification and repair), service activation, and 24/7 network monitoring and dispatch. The suite is intended to complement service providers' own resources - giving them a choice of hosting their own network, hosting with a third party that ARRIS manages, or completely outsourcing to ARRIS.

"ARRIS Managed Business Networks enables service providers to quickly and reliably address the changing needs of their enterprise customers," said Dan Whalen, president, Network & Cloud, ARRIS. "Enterprises are increasingly turning over key parts of their IT infrastructure to managed network providers to focus on their core business, simplify operations and reduce costs. With Managed Business Networks, ARRIS is positioning our expertise in network management at the forefront of this trend to help service providers capitalize on new opportunities for business revenue."

ARRIS Managed Business Networks offers vertical-specific connectivity features:

  • SMB and Multi-Site Business: Router and/or firewall deployment and operations
  • Hospitality and SMB: Wireless and wired networks with control of private and guest access
  • MDU: Virtual segmentation of wired and wireless networks per tenant for property-wide, wireless access

Future offerings are planned to include:

  • Managed SD-WAN
  • Managed venue networks
  • Managed education networks
