Today we introduced Docker® container software support for select ARRIS gateways, enabling service providers to introduce third-party applications quickly and easily.
Docker software support will be available for the ARRIS® NVG400 and NVG500 series of advanced PON, LTE, Ethernet, and DSL solutions. Docker container software is an open source package than runs applications quickly and reliably in different computing environments. The NVG platform with Docker software support allows service providers to integrate and remotely deploy third-party applications without impacting core gateway functions. This avoids the need for full firmware release testing, providing operational costs savings and improved time-to-market for new revenue-generating services.
The NVG gateway platform is supported by ARRIS’s ECO Service Management, which will provide a network-wide view of Docker containers and enable operators to manage applications across their networks.
