IDSTEIN, Germany -- Motorola, Inc’s (NYSE: MOT) Mobile Devices and Home business today announced that Kabel BW, one of the leading cable network operators in Germany, has selected new EuroDOCSIS 3.0 solutions from Motorola to offer personalized media experiences to customers in cities in the German federal state Baden-Wuerttemberg with broadband speeds of currently up to 100 megabits per second (Mbps). The extended services portfolio of Kabel BW is based on Motorola’s BSR 64000 Integrated CMTS (I-CMTS) and TX32 decoupled downstream module. In addition, Motorola provided integration and implementation services in support of Kabel BW’s network rollout.

Motorola’s I-CMTS can support two fully redundant TX32 modules and is designed to offer operators five times more downstream capacity while reducing the cost per port by up to 60 percent. With Motorola’s EuroDOCSIS 3.0 and channel bonding solutions, Kabel BW can deliver additional advanced multimedia via higher-rate broadband service tiers while protecting existing DOCSIS deployments and investment.

“Motorola has broad experience in developing and delivering proven EuroDOCSIS 3.0 solutions,” said Ludwig Modra, business unit manager network operation and technology at Kabel BW. “By upgrading our infrastructure to DOCSIS 3.0, we are able to provide our customers with even faster broadband Internet, which can truly make personal rich media experiences a reality. Our business benefits from Motorola’s operationally sensitive approach to deploying additional capacity into our network and our customers benefit from Internet speeds of up to 100 Mbps that Kabel BW is able to offer across its cable network.”
