Expects to deliver personal media experiences through better broadband speeds
Canada-based Shaw Communications has selected Motorola to deploy a DOCSIS 3.0-qualified cable modem termination system containing Motorola BSR 64000 TX32 decoupled downstream modules, and SURFboard cable modems to deliver personal media experiences through better broadband speeds.
According to Motorola, with the TX32, Shaw may support continued internet traffic growth via already-deployed DOCSIS 1.x and 2.0 technology while offering higher bandwidth tiers to subscribers via DOCSIS 3.0 channel-bonding technology.
Motorola has said that the TX32 downstream module slides directly into one of the 16-slots of the Motorola BSR 64000 chassis, ultimately offering a five-fold increase in bandwidth capacity while reducing the cost per downstream channel. The TX32 module and SURFboard SB6120 cable modems are expected to enable Shaw to start marketing DOCSIS 3.0, channel-bonded services.
Kevin Keefe, vice president of marketing for access network solutions at Motorola, said: Shaw is a long-standing Motorola customer, and we are pleased to help the company continue to broaden its service offerings while making the most of hardware investments that are already in place. Motorola’s TX32 module and SURFboard cable modems are solutions that will easily scale with Shaw as it addresses increasing bandwidth demand and looks to evolve its network even further to provide more compelling, high-quality ultra-broadband services.
