HORSHAM, Pa. -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced agreements to sell DOCSIS 3.0-certified Motorola SURFboard® SB6120 cable modems through Fry’s Electronics stores across the U.S. The Motorola SB6120 is the first DOCSIS 3.0 modem to launch in retail.

An established leader in the direct-to-consumer market, Motorola has sold more cable modems in retail than any other provider. The agreements with Fry’s Electronics highlight the ongoing importance of the retail channel to Motorola and give consumers access for the first time to the same DOCSIS 3.0 modems available to cable operators. The DOCSIS 3.0 standard enables faster Internet download / upload speeds — up to 4 times faster than DOCSIS 2.0 — and supports high-bandwidth Internet services as well as gaming, streaming video and multimedia downloads.

The Motorola SB6120 and SBV6220 work in concert with Motorola’s NBBS Device Management Software Platform and Motorola’s eCare solution for remote customer configuration to provide service assurance to the consumer.

“We’re witnessing the greatest advancement in DOCSIS cable modems in more than ten years, and Fry’s Electronics is at the forefront of the retail DOCSIS 3.0 movement,” said Alan Lefkof, corporate vice president & general manager, Motorola Broadband Home Gateways & Software. “We are pleased to work with Fry’s Electronics and to provide consumers with high-end modem that will work with any form of DOCSIS network their cable operators provide.”
