Arris Group is an American telecommunications equipment manufacturing company that provides cable operators with high-speed data, video and telephony systems for homes and businesses. The company is headquartered in Suwanee, Georgia, and has design, engineering, manufacturing, distribution, service and sales office locations throughout the world.
Two of the company's popular home telephony modems are the TM402P and the TM502G. The firm also produces the SBG6782-AC wireless cable modem-and-router (residential gateway) unit, among other telecommunications and data-transfer products.
In November, 2001, Arris announced that it would acquire the assets of Cadant Inc., a Naperville, IL-based privately held designer and manufacturer of cable modem termination systems. The acquisition was completed on January 31, 2002.
On September 1, 2009, Arris acquired certain assets of EG Technology, Inc., (EGT), an Atlanta-based company. That same month, Arris purchased the assets of Digeo, Inc. (including Moxi), for approximately $20 million.
On December 19, 2012, Arris announced that it would acquire Motorola Mobility's home unit (the former General Instrument company) from Google for $2.35 billion in cash and stock. The acquisition was completed on April 17, 2013. With that acquisition, Arris grew its presence in the set-top box market.
On April 22, 2015, Arris Group agreed to acquire set top box manufacturer Pace plc of the United Kingdom, in a stock and cash deal that valued Pace at £1.4Bn. The resultant combined group will be headquartered in the United Kingdom, but operationally managed from the United States. Pace shareholders will own 24% of the combined company, and Arris shareholders 76%.
On August 19, 2014, Arris announced a sponsorship of NASCAR driver Carl Edwards. Carl now drives the number 19 Toyota Camry in the Sprint Cup Series for Joe Gibbs Racing in 2015. Additionally, Daniel Suárez pilots Arris-sponsored vehicles in the Xfinity Series and Camping World Truck Series.
