Meanwhile, the NVG558 is a fixed wireless broadband gateway that supports triple-play services, with an integrated technology that can deliver 4G LTE and 3.5GHz CBRS. It also has potential to support future 5G services.

Arris said it will begin customer trials in the first quarter.

"Service providers are evolving their networks to deliver today's high-bandwidth experiences while preparing for tomorrow's multi-gigabit services,” said Larry Robinson, president of customer premises equipment for Arris, in a statement. 

“We designed the Arris NVG578 and NVG558 broadband platforms to simplify that process. They offer unprecedented flexibility to support smart-home devices; video experiences like UHD streaming, gaming, VR, and AR; and a full range of next-generation services," Robinson added.
