Danish TV and Internet provider Stofa has launched gigabit Internet service based on remote PHY (R-PHY) technology from ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS).

"We've been trialling ARRIS R-PHY technology for many months now," said Stofa CTO Jacob Larsen. "We have over a hundred customers currently using this technology, and the initial feedback is very, very positive. We are extremely happy with the results of our partnership with ARRIS."

Stofa and ARRIS announced their partnership less than a year ago. The deployment uses ARRIS' E6000 CCAP Core and NC2000 R-PHY optical nodes. Stofa is using the technology to virtualize and decentralize headend functions and elements of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) layer. The deployment is intended to enable more efficient use of the network media, enabling service speeds of up to 1 Gbps. The upgraded network also supports streaming for broadcast video and VOD without impacting broadband speed.

"We're very excited to be pioneering remote PHY deployments in EMEA and seeing the real-world speeds and video quality first-hand," said Dan Whalen, president of Network & Cloud, ARRIS Global Services. "Stofa has shared our vision for a next-generation network from the start, and we're proud to be making history with them."

Stofa plans to deploy additional ARRIS NC2000 nodes in the future to bring gigabit speeds to more of its customers. Later this year, the company plans to roll out the improved service to additional parts of its footprint.
