Arris connects to wireless with Ruckus agreement

Arris is spreading its wings beyond its traditional wireline connectivity products and into the thin air via a global reseller agreement with Ruckus Wireless. The mutually beneficial pact gives Arris access to Ruckus' line of WiFi products and gives Ruckus a key to open cable's door.

"Cable operators represent a significant new market opportunity for WiFi and Arris has long held a leadership position in this market," Bart Bursteiin, vice president of product management andd business development for Ruckus said in a news release. "Our carrier class WiFi products and technology are the ideal complement to the existing Arris portfolio."

The move brings Arris onto somewhat level footing with Cisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO) and Motorola Mobility (NYSE: MMI), both of which have long had wireless components to their business lines.
