Motorola Powers New Ultra Broadband Services for Massillon Cable Subscribers


Integrated CMTS solution from Motorola provides cost-effective route to DOCSIS 3.0 and IPTV services for operators of all sizes

HORSHAM, Pa. – Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT) Home & Networks Mobility business today announced that Massillon Cable TV, Inc. (MCTV), a leading provider of video, data, and voice services to residential, small business and commercial customers in Massillon and Wooster, Ohio has deployed the proven Motorola BSR 64000 Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) and the high density Motorola TX32 downstream module to deliver ultra fast Internet speeds and advanced services. Massillon is one of a growing list of cable operators worldwide to upgrade to an integrated CMTS (I-CMTS) solution as a way to meet increasing online traffic demands.

“It is important for Massillon to deploy a platform that allows us to offer the fastest broadband speeds available to our customers, while maintaining redundancy and quality of service as we scale our network”, said David Hoffer, Financial Controller, Massillon Cable. “We chose the Motorola I-CMTS solution with decoupled downstream cards because it offered a way to simply and economically deploy DOCSIS(R) 3.0 based services in a way that better suits our rollout strategy.”

The Motorola I-CMTS solution makes DOCSIS 3.0, and ultimately IPTV delivery, economically viable to operators by providing a migration path to the roll out of services and additional functionality as the network and customers demand.

“Motorola has proven I-CMTS deployments with large cable operators worldwide,” said Kevin Keefe, vice president of marketing, Access Networks Solutions, Motorola Home & Mobility Networks. “The selection of an I-CMTS solution by Massillon marks an important shift in the market where Operators, no matter their size, recognize the need to evolve their networks to DOCSIS 3.0 while keeping expenses low and operations simple. Operators selecting Motorola’s I-CMTS solution have access to a more economical means to expand existing broadband service tiers, and a platform robust enough to handle the operational demands of IP video over DOCSIS when needed.”

The Motorola I-CMTS platform allows Massillon Cable to accelerate the deployment of DOCSIS 3.0 based services to its customers. The platform provides complete spectrum management and automatically addresses congestion issues that can potentially impact bandwidth delivery to the customer.

The Motorola I-CMTS platform offers operators:

* A proven, high-density, DOCSIS standards-based, fully redundant CMTS/intelligent edge router that allows broadband operators to rapidly introduce differentiated data, voice, and multimedia services
* The fully redundant TX32 Decoupled Downstream module providing significant downstream capacity and DOCSIS® 3.0 downstream channel bonding
