MOTOROLA'S BSR 64000 CAPACITY DOUBLES W/ NEW CMTS CARD.

Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) Broadband Communications Sector has unveiled a high-density cable modem termination system (CMTS) card capable of doubling the upstream capacity of its Broadband Services Router (BSR) 64000 CMTS/router. This high-density CMTS card provides eight upstream ports, which will increase the Motorola BSR 64000's upstream port capacity to a total of 104 ports -- one of the highest CMTS upstream port capacities available today.

The new Motorola BSR 64000 high-density CMTS card's advanced upstream capacity is especially ideal for broadband network operators serving large geographic areas with widely dispersed optical fiber nodes. The high-density Motorola BSR 64000 solution also provides an efficient migration solution for customers with proprietary and first-generation DOCSIS equipment who want to switch to high-capacity, high-performance DOCSIS 1.1-based systems. The new high-density card includes support for Motorola's advanced spectrum management capabilities and N:1 RF redundancy architecture to optimize service availability.

"Increased upstream bandwidth capabilities enable operators to cost- effectively support broader serving areas as well as more symmetrical applications such as PacketCable-based VoIP and business services," said Bruce Swail, vice president and general manager of Motorola's IP systems business. "With our BSR 64000 high-density CMTS card, we continue to deliver industry-leading performance and reliability to our customers. Its eight upstream ports provide twice the upstream capacity - offering t he high levels of throughput and cable modem population support that broadband network operators need to deploy bundled voice and data services to their customers."

About Motorola's BSR 64000

The 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 the ideal 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 hundreds of thousands of voice, video, data, music, and other interactive IP-based services over shared cable and other broadband network infrastructures.
