Motorola has unveiled its TX32 Decoupled Downstream Module aimed at cable operators looking to offer ultra-broadband triple-play services at greater speeds and lower overall costs. The solution â€“ which Motorola claims enables a five-fold increase in downstream CMTS capacity to accelerate the delivery of personal media experiences – allows cable operators to deliver significantly increased bandwidth to new DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS 3.0 cable modems while preserving operator investment in legacy DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS 1.x and 2.0 cable modems.
Dr George Simmons, corporate vice president and general manager, Access Network Solutions, Home and Networks Mobility, Motorola, said that the solution allowed cable operators to deploy channel bonding services straightaway, with only minor adjustments to their network at the headend. “This represents a giant leap forward in the race for cost-effective, higher-capacity broadband solutions to deliver enhanced personal media experiences,” he claimed.
