New Motorola Software Release Features Support for Channel Bonding on Installed BSR 64000 Systems


Operators benefit from an easy migration to DOCSIS® 3.0 channel bonding for delivery of Ultra-Broadband services

LAS VEGAS,- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced that support for DOCSIS 3.0 will be integrated into the Motorola Broadband Services Router (BSR) 64000 cable modem termination system (CMTS) 4.4 software release. The new software offers all existing BSR 64000 customers with 2:8 CMTS Modules the ability to leverage standards-based, downstream channel bonding with a simple software install. This new software release will give operators the ability to achieve Ultra-Broadband rates and deliver more than 145 Mbps to a single DOCSIS cable modem and more than 200 Mbps to a single EuroDOCSIS cable modem without the need for additional hardware.

Motorola works with service providers around the globe to drive enhanced capacity and throughput on every kind of broadband network. For cable operators, channel bonding is a way to expand throughput by a factor of four to individual DOCSIS and EuroDOCSIS 3.0 cable modems. This improved bandwidth lends cable operators an advantage as they face increasing competitive pressures from the telecom industry and fiber-to-the-home deployments.

“Our goal has always been to give our customers a viable route toward the delivery of Ultra-Broadband services, and our intensive development work on the DOCSIS 3.0 standard was conducted specifically with that goal in mind,” said Kevin Keefe, vice president marketing, Motorola Connected Home Solutions. “The 4.4 software release provides the bandwidth benefits of the DOCSIS 3.0 standard while at the same time helping to protect our customers’ investments in Motorola CMTS hardware.”

The BSR 64000 configured with existing 2:8 CMTS Modules is designed to allow cable operators to bond up to four physical channels into a single logical channel for delivering targeted bandwidth. Through Dynamic Load Balancing, the Motorola software solution also helps enable legacy cable modems to share the same bandwidth as bonded, DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems.
