COLOGNE, Germany -- The Mobile Devices and Home business of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT - News) begins showcasing today the new RX48 decoupled upstream module for its BSR 64000 Integrated Cable Modem Termination System (I-CMTS) at ANGA Cable 2010 (stand H37). Announced in 2009 and commercially available from third quarter 2010, the industry's highest density RX48 decoupled upstream module will be demonstrated alongside the widely deployed TX32 decoupled downstream module hosted within the BSR 64000 I-CMTS. With both the RX48 and TX32 modules cable operators are able to economically meet growing demand for increased broadband throughput in support of a growing list of consumer experiences such as social media, streaming video and multi-screen IP video delivery.

Once installed with the RX48 decoupled upstream module, Motorola's BSR 64000 I-CMTS solution offers nearly 1.5 Gbps of upstream capacity per module. The combination of the RX48 and TX32 high-density decoupled modules, along with the simplicity of the integrated design of the BSR 64000, will provide enhanced flexibility and scalability. Through this highly scalable upstream solution Motorola can help cable operators achieve up to 60 percent capital savings over traditional upstream and downstream modules. In addition, the RX48 delivers significant energy efficiency, with a per channel power reduction of 81 percent over previous modules.

When deployed with S-CDMA, the RX48 represents the most comprehensive upstream solution available in the market today. With S-CDMA, cable operators can unlock additional usable spectrum in their networks to increase upstream capacity by up to 50 percent. By deploying S-CDMA, cable operators safely utilize spectrum below 15 MHz and above 40 MHz to increase average data rates through higher order modulation and achieve up to 150 Mbps of peak upstream bandwidth.

"This demonstration of our BSR 64000 integrated RX48 upstream module at ANGA Cable 2010 marks an important milestone in innovation and engineering leadership for Motorola," said Joe Cozzolino, senior vice president, Motorola Mobile Devices and Home business. "Operators worldwide are challenged with having to increase the upstream capacity of their network in the face of overcrowding headends and limited spectrum. With the RX48, Motorola achieves market-leading upstream density and helps cable operators harness the full potential of the upstream spectrum to enable dramatic increases in speeds and capacity to existing DOCSIS 1.0 and 2.0 environments and helps them to offer even richer media experiences to a growing number of DOCSIS 3.0 connected subscribers."
