Comcast Offers VOIP Modem
HORSHAM, Pa. -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) today announced that Comcast will place an order for the Motorola SBV5220, a combination modem and phone adapter, also known as an embedded Multimedia Terminal Adapter (eMTA), located in customers' homes. This order comes after the SBV5220 successfully completed an extensive hardware and software qualification process.
The Motorola SBV5220 is equipped with an integrated Lithium-ion battery back-up, which provides up to eight hours of battery back-up in the event of a power outage in the home. Comcast expects to offer the Motorola eMTA in the second half of 2006 to Comcast Digital Voice customers nationwide.
Part of Motorola's expansive portfolio of telephony products, the SBV5220 serves as a single device connecting customers to their digital voice and high-speed Internet services. The SBV5220 can power up to two phone lines in the home using standard RJ-11 connectors. The eMTA can connect to a computer through either a 10/100Base-T Ethernet or a USB data port.
"Comcast's qualification process ensures that the products we offer customers are as reliable as the high-quality services that we deliver," said Cathy Avgiris, senior vice president and general manager of Comcast Voice services. "Motorola has met these exacting standards, and we are pleased to add the Motorola SBV5220 as part of our Comcast Digital Voice offering."
