Mexico's Cablemas Selects Motorola's Broadband Services Router (BSR) 64000 For Multiple DOCSIS(TM) 1.1 Plant Upgrades.
Motorola, Inc. Broadband Communications Sector announced that Mexico's Cablemas has selected Motorola's next-generation cable modem termination system (CMTS)/router technology to replace its current DOCSIS 1.0 equipment. This agreement helps grow Motorola's global CMTS footprint, with Cablemas' joining the growing list of Motorola Broadband CMTS customers who have chosen the Motorola BSR 64000 CMTS platform for their DOCSIS(TM) 1.1 system upgrades. Cablemas is the third-largest cable TV provider in Mexico, serving more than 310,000 subscribers in 36 cities.
The DOCSIS 1.1-qualified Motorola BSR 64000 platform offers several distinct carrier-class features designed to support Cablemas' plans for expanding its offering of advanced, high-speed data services. These features include: distributed processor architecture to help eliminate potential "bottlenecks;" intelligent edge routing to provide low latency and high security in packet filtering and forwarding; advanced spectrum management to detect and protect against channel degradation; and SmartFlow(TM) Intelligent QoS to support bandwidth prioritization and high availability.
Cablered(R), Cablemas' high-speed Internet services division, has already integrated the Motorola BSR 64000 in its Tijuana network, and plans to install the integrated CMTS/router in its Merida and Campeche networks, with the objective to achieve 40,000 subscribers in ten cities by the end of 2003.
Cablemas also selected the DOCSIS 1.1 Motorola BSR 64000 based on the CMTS/router's proven performance, reliability, and density. Collectively, the Motorola BSR 64000's capabilities give Cablemas the confidence that they have the right technology in place to cost-effectively implement advanced DOCSIS 1.1-based data services as they grow their residential and commercial high- speed data customer bases. In addition, the Motorola BSR 64000 offers user- friendly features, provides superior diagnostic capabilities, and is equipped to support Cablemas' future introduction of tiered data and VoIP services.
"Motorola offers the right combination of global knowledge, technical expertise, scale, and support to help ensure the success of our high-speed data service rollout, today and into the future. In addition to its strength as a company, Motorola offers a world-class CMTS platform. We tested a number of systems, and the Motorola BSR 64000 was unmatched in terms of scalability, density, RF redundancy, and other critical carrier-class features. We look forward to leveraging the Motorola BSR 64000 to cost-effectively deliver the next level of high-speed data services to our customers," said Arnoldo Meiselmann, COO of Cablemas.
"We know we have a window of opportunity against other broadband systems, and we are committed to take this opportunity and increase our penetration in all profitable regions. We expect the market to grow fast, and we will be there, taking advantage first of the lack of high speed alternatives with the best existing technology," added Alejandro Mirsky, Cablemas CCO.
"This latest Motorola BSR 64000 installation represents a break-through in Motorola's initiative to provide end-to-end solutions in Latin America," said Bruce Swail, corporate vice president and general manager of Motorola's IP systems business. "Cablemas represents one of the most influential, aggressive operators in Mexico, and we are very pleased that they have selected Motorola as their partner for their DOCSIS 1.1 systems upgrades. The Motorola BSR 64000 is designed to deliver complex broadband services while ensuring high customer satisfaction of service. We look forward to working with Cablemas to deliver the latest IP services to its customers to help keep them informed, entertained and connected in their homes."
More about the Motorola BSR 64000
The DOCSIS 1.1-qualified Motorola BSR 64000 is designed to provide broadband network operators with extremely high network availability, with an architecture that supports redundancy for every element of the system - including cost-effective 1:N RF redundancy. Its high-density design - based on centralized routing and distributed forwarding - provides the benefits of simple configuration (single router appearance) and scalable performance (each additional line card brings an associated forwarding engine). The Motorola BSR 64000 also provides a low cost of entry, which requires operators to purchase only the forwarding power required. Centralized routing calculations with distributed forwarding in hardware provide an optimal solution for simple configuration and maximum scalability.
With its hardware-based packet processing, the Motorola BSR 64000 can support large populations of modems and multiple services through real-time treatment. Motorola's BSR technology also helps operators reliably deliver tens of thousands of voice, video, data, music, and other interactive IP-based lines of service over shared cable and other broadband network infrastructures.
Cablered(R), Cablemas' high-speed Internet services division, provides high quality residential and corporate services in several cities in Mexico, including Cancun, Morelia, Merida and Tijuana.
Cablemas is the third largest cable TV provider in Mexico, serving more than 310,000 subscribers in 36 cities around Mexico.
