Motorola Introduces Enhanced CWDM, Breakthrough Fiber Technology for Increasing Service Bandwidth to the Home


Advanced E-CWDM solution launches multiple wavelengths on a single fiber, increasing the bandwidth for value-added services up to five times

ORLANDO.– Motorola, Inc (NYSE:MOT) today introduced its breakthrough Enhanced Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (E-CWDM) solution at the Society of Cable and Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) Cable-Tec Expo (Orlando Convention Center, June 20-22). Motorola’s new E-CWDM technology increases downstream service delivery capacity over cable networks by transmitting multiple CWDM optical signals over a single fiber optic connection, enabling operators to segment serving areas into three, four or five discrete areas. With each optical signal carrying a full 1 GHz loading of broadcast and narrowcast content, over distances up to 25 kilometers between the hub and optical node, operators can cost effectively meet the need for additional service capacity for HDTV, VoIP, VOD and high-speed DOCSIS services.

Part of Motorola’s proven portfolio of Ultra-Broadband bandwidth expansion solutions, E-CWDM is both economical and simple to deploy, with inherent system reliability that can endure harsh outside plant environments and changes in optical characteristics of components over time. By increasing bandwidth through greater segmentation, operators can raise overall voice, data and video broadband throughput while avoiding the expense of adding new fiber. With its 25-kilometer range, E-CWDM covers a vast majority of optical node locations. Motorola’s technology exceeds that of competitive CWDM solutions, which typically offer up to two wavelengths and range limitation of around 12 kilometers.

“Motorola’s E-CWDM solution offers an economical approach and provides the performance needed for fiber deep applications over long distances – and more than doubles the service delivery capacity of existing CDWM solutions,” said Kevin Keefe, vice president of marketing, Motorola Home and Networks Mobility. “With this level of performance and range, along with the bandwidth potential, E-CWDM technology becomes a very attractive transport option. We expect this solution will be very appealing to cable operators as they look to expand capacity for bandwidth-intensive applications like high-definition video-on-demand, time-shifted television services and very-high-throughput broadband Internet.”

Motorola’s E-CWDM technology is utilized in the widely-deployed Motorola OmniStar® GX2 optical transport platform and SG4000 optical node platform, visit stand #1378 at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo.
