Motorola Ships 1,000 High-Density Downstream Modules to Cable Operators Worldwide, Expanding Personalized Media Experiences
Proven solution delivers a five-fold increase in downstream cable modem termination system (CMTS) capacity, compelling downstream port economics and significant levels of investment protection
Feb. 11, 2009
Horsham, PA – February 11, 2009 – Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced that the company has provided international cable customers with more than 1,000 units of its TX32 Decoupled Downstream Module. The TX32 enables operators to quickly deploy ultra-broadband services of up to 200 Mbps downstream, while achieving as much as 60% in cost savings per downstream channel. The industry’s highest-density, downstream module, the TX32 is the latest innovation added to the widely deployed DOCSIS® 3.0 CableLabs® Bronze Qualified Motorola BSR 64000 Integrated CMTS/edge router solution.
“We’re excited to see such a positive response to the TX32 by cable operators worldwide,” said Dr. George H. Simmons, corporate vice president and general manager, Access Network Solutions, Motorola, Inc. “There is significant pressure on cable operators to offer greater bandwidth to consumers while minimizing operational and network expansion costs. Cable operators can now accelerate the delivery of rich personalized media experiences to their subscribers via additional downstream capacity and channel bonding made available via the TX32.”
Today, channel bonding enables lightning-fast Internet downloads and is driving the initial move to DOCSIS 3.0. Motorola’s BSR 64000 CMTS/edge router and SURFboard® cable modems are deployed in the most complex cable operator networks. Motorola has previously announced several of its proven end-to-end channel bonding deployments worldwide including J:Com, C&M and CJ CableNet.
About the TX32 Module
The TX32 solution requires only one slot in an existing Motorola BSR 64000 Integrated CMTS/edge router to support the delivery of 32 downstream QAM channels - a unique benefit of the TX32 integrated solution. Another Motorola advantage is the availability of fully redundant TX32 configuration which is important to operators who are looking to provide a high-performance, high- availability system.
Motorola’s DOCSIS 3.0 qualified CMTS portfolio includes support for IPv4 and IPv6 and advanced encryption services and is backwards compatible with DOCSIS 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0 standards. Designed for service assurance, the Motorola CMTS is also compatible with Motorola’s NBBS device management platform and Motorola’s eCare solution for remote customer configuration and support.
