Motorola Extends DOCSIS® 3.0 Leadership with New Line of Wireless Home Networking Gateways

Motorola Extends DOCSIS® 3.0 Leadership with New Line of Wireless Home Networking Gateways Motorola’s innovative SURFboard® gateways help accelerate the migration to a service-assured home with integrated IP services

Motorola, Inc.’s (NYSE: MOT) Home & Networks Mobility business announced its next-generation SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 modems and integrated gateways, designed to deliver ultra-broadband IP-based voice and data services. Motorola’s new gateways help cable operators accelerate the delivery of personal media experiences to their subscribers by making ultra broadband available throughout the home, with one easy-to-install and easy-to-manage device.

As consumers demand more wireless services, cable providers are seeking integrated solutions that combine traditional high-speed data, IP-telephony and secure home networking with unparalleled service assurance. Motorola continues to be a market leader for DOCSIS 3.0 solutions, and this new platform is two times faster than our previously announced DOCSIS 3.0 products. The new line of standards-based and remotely manageable gateways supports high-bandwidth Gigabit Ethernet (GiGe) home networking and channel bonding of up to eight downstream and four upstream channels. This increased 8 x 4 throughput support enables an operator to offer its customers advanced multimedia services with data rates up to 300 Mbps downstream and more than 100 Mbps upstream.

The new SURFboard all-in-one integrated gateways also are equipped with a four-port GiGe switch and integrated 802.11n Wi-Fi® access point. The gateways’ internal antenna and switched on-board radios (2.4 or 5 GHz) enable consumers to maximize the high-bandwidth potential of their home or business networks, while eliminating the need for stand-alone routers, hubs and access points. In addition, the new SURFboard gateways are equipped with next-generation security features: a built-in firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection; intrusion detection; Denial of Service attack prevention; and a simplified ”visitor” feature set, enabling users to easily accommodate addition of their “permissioned” guests onto the home’s Wi-Fi network, while still protecting the network from unwelcome hacker attacks.

“With the introduction of our new line of next-generation SURFboard modems and gateways, Motorola continues to demonstrate its global leadership and expertise in developing and deploying DOCSIS-certified solutions,” said Alan Lefkof, corporate vice president and general manager, Motorola Broadband Home Gateways and Software Solutions Group. “Our new SURFboard integrated gateways demonstrate Motorola’s commitment to delivering high-value, lower-cost-of-ownership solutions, in one convenient and reliable package.”

Motorola’s new SURFboard platform is also environmentally friendly, helping service providers lower their carbon footprint and minimize their impact on the environment. In fact, Motorola’s next-generation SURFboard portfolio of CPE is designed to comply with international environmental and energy-efficient standards. The portfolio uses ENERGY STAR-qualified power supplies, and its devices and power supplies are compliant with both European Code of Conduct and RoHS regulations.

Supporting the Wi-Fi home network is a new challenge for the cable industry. By combining the highest-performing and lowest-cost-of-ownership modems in the industry with easy-to-use Wi-Fi installation and pairing tools, as well as advanced remote management features, Motorola is offering an all-in-one approach to broadband home networking. For service assurance of the increasingly complex home network, Motorola’s field-proven NBBS remote device management software platform provides the MSO with intelligent management, auto-provisioning and remote management features to improve accuracy, efficiency and customer satisfaction. Motorola’s NBBS platform is a scalable, carrier-grade software platform that enables cable operators to remotely access, configure, monitor and troubleshoot their full portfolio of consumer devices, home networks and services.

For more information on Motorola’s SURFboard Series, visit www.motorola.com/SURFboardSolutions.  The new family of Motorola SURFboard CPE will be showcased at Motorola’s booth #4116 at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo Show, October 28 – 30, 2009, at the Denver, Colorado, Convention Center.

Motorola Announces Industry Leading High-Density Decoupled Upstream Module for its Integrated CMTS Solution

Motorola Announces Industry Leading High-Density Decoupled Upstream Module for its Integrated CMTS Solution Motorola’s RX48 Upstream Module helps cable operators economically deliver upstream bandwidth to meet growing subscriber demand

Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) Home & Networks Mobility business introduced the Motorola RX48 decoupled upstream module for its BSR 64000 Integrated Cable Modem Termination System (I-CMTS).With the addition of the RX48 upstream module, Motorola is helping cable operators economically meet their subscribers’ demands for higher average and peak upstream bandwidth, which continue to accelerate, as they react to the ever-increasing popularity in social video, media and high-definition videoconferencing applications, and lucrative commercial service opportunities.

The Motorola BSR 64000 I-CMTS solution, with the new RX48 decoupled upstream module, offers nearly 1.5 Gbps of upstream capacity per module. The upstream-only module is the “sister” card of the TX32 decoupled downstream module, the industry’s highest-density downstream solution, launched in November 2007. The combination of these two high-density decoupled modules, along with the simplicity of the integrated design of the BSR 64000, will provide industry leading flexibility and scalability. Through this highly scalable upstream solution Motorola can help cable operators achieve up to a 60-percent capital savings over traditional upstream and downstream modules. In addition, the RX48 delivers significant energy efficiency, with a per channel power reduction of 81 percent over previous modules.

When combined with S-CDMA, the RX48 represents the most comprehensive upstream solution available in the market today. With S-CDMA, cable operators can unlock additional usable spectrum in their networks to increase upstream capacity by up to 50 percent. By deploying the RX48 decoupled upstream module in conjunction with S-CDMA, cable operators can use this new capacity to increase average data rates through higher order modulation, or implement DOCSIS 3.0 upstream channel bonding to achieve up to 150 Mbps of peak upstream bandwidth.

“Motorola has a long history of hybrid-fiber coax innovation and engineering leadership that continues with the announcement of our RX48 upstream solution. With the RX48, cable operators can rapidly grow their upstream service offering and provide a long-term platform to support evolving IP video services,” said Joe Cozzolino, senior vice president and general manager, Access Networks Solutions, Motorola Home and Networks Mobility. “In addition to the targeting of new commercial services, Motorola helps cable operators harness the full potential of the upstream spectrum and enables greater speeds and capacity to existing DOCSIS 1.x and 2.0 environments and offering even richer media experiences to tomorrow’s DOCSIS 3.0 connected subscribers.”

The RX48 decoupled upstream module will be available to customers in mid-2010. Motorola is showcasing the RX48 decoupled upstream module as part of its comprehensive BSR 64000 I-CMTS solution at the 2009 SCTE Cable-Tec Expo®, October 28-30th in Denver, Colo. — Colorado Convention Center, Booth # 4116.

The operator is among a growing list of cable operators worldwide that are upgrading toMotorola’s Integrated Cable Modem Termination System (I-CMTS) solution as a way to address the increasing demands for personalized media experiences. The I-CMTS solution is currently powering Beijing Gehua’s advanced offerings, and will support its upcoming roll-out of Video on Demand (VOD) service.

Motorola’s BSR 64000 is a proven, high-density, standards-based and fully redundant CMTS/intelligent edge router that allows operators like Beijing Gehua to rapidly introduce differentiated data, voice and multimedia services.

“Motorola has developed extensive expertise in I-CMTS deployments with large cable operators worldwide,” said Drina Yue, vice president, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility Regional Management, Asia Pacific. “We are excited to work with Beijing Gehua as they begin to introduce high-speed broadband experiences to their subscribers in Beijing. Motorola’s I-CMTS solution can offer operators, like Beijing Gehua, the ability to reduce their cost per downstream channel, resulting in the highly cost-effective delivery of advanced services to their subscribers.”

Built to evolve, Motorola’s I-CMTS solution makes DOCSIS 3.0 economically viable to operators, by providing a software migration path from DOCSIS 2.0 to DOCSIS 3.0 to support the roll out of high speed data services as well as additional IP-based functionality, as demanded by the network and its customers. Motorola’s I-CMTS is compatible with existing infrastructure including DOCSIS 1.x and 2.0 cable modems, which enables operators to quickly enhance their offerings while maintaining uninterrupted support of existing operations. Moreover, operators can expand system capacity by adding multiple TX32 Decoupled Downstream Modules and in the future, add RX series upstream modules, to offer additional scalability and flexibility to meet rapidly growing customer demand for ultra-broadband Internet services.

Motorola is a leading provider of cable broadband technology with a proven track record and extensive experience in implementing advanced networks worldwide. The company recently announced worldwide shipments of more than 1,000 TX32 Decoupled Downstream Modules. According to Infonetics 2Q09 report, Motorola continues to lead in the DOCSIS 3.0 certified CPE market with over a 60 percent market share and is the world’s No. 1 video set-top box (STB) technology provider. Motorola also deploys and services CMTS-enabled DOCSIS 3.0 networks for key operators in Asia, including LG Powercom, C&M, CJ and Qrix in Korea, J:COM in Japan, StarHub in Singapore, and Taiwan Broadband Communications in Taiwan.
