BigBand & Netgear Team on Channel Bonding

Call it a bonding experience. BigBand Networks and Netgear are teaming up to offer an end-to-end channel bonding solution to cable operators so that they can offer data speeds of more than 100 Mbps to their broadband subscribers. The two cable tech vendors announced earlier today that they are working to integrate Netgear's Channel Bonding Cable Modem (model CM232) with a modular CMTS solution that combines BigBand's Cuda CMTS and Broadband Multimedia-Service Edge (BME) devices. They said the joint effort will result in integrated end-to-end products that will enable MSOs to more than quadruple their current cable modem speeds. The channel bonding technology is based on the emerging DOCSIS 3.0 spec, which CableLabs is now preparing for release. Netgear and BigBand said they plan to demonstrate their integrated solution at several upcoming broadband industry events around the world.
