Moto Marks IP STB Milestone

Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT) announced it shipped its 2 millionth IP set-top box (STB) in September, following the delivery of 1 million units during the past five months.

Sweden's Telia Company was the recipient of the threshold-breaking box. The telco counts 150,000 IPTV subscribers. Other Motorola IP set-top customers include Telefonica, KPN Telecom NV (NYSE: KPN), and Deutsche Telekom AG (NYSE: DT) subsidiary T-Com Croatia.

Cable set-top king Motorola jumped into the IP STB space through its acquisition of Kreatel, a Swedish player that built its business on an open-source Linux platform. (See Moto Buys Swedish Set-Topper.)

The question is, will any North American broadband players ever start buying some of these IP STBs?
