Virgin Media Selects Motorola’s Ultra-Broadband Solution

Virgin Media has deployed the Motorola CMTS solution to enable the delivery of rich personalized media experiences to customers in the UK. Currently delivering broadband speeds of up to 50 megabits per second, and capable of speeds up to 200 megabits per second, Virgin Media is the first service provider to deliver ultra fast broadband speeds in the UK.

Virgin Media selected the Motorola BSR 64000 Integrated-CMTS (I-CMTS) solution with TX32 decoupled downstream modules to support market-leading broadband speeds and take advantage of next-generation cable broadband standards such as DOCSIS 3.0 and channel bonding.

As the first company in the world to deploy channel bonding, Motorola has a scalable I-CMTS platform that creates opportunities for cable operators, such as Virgin Media, to increase bandwidth, enhance security, and evolve triple play voice and ultra-broadband data and video services.

"We are delighted to be selected by Virgin Media as it rolls out DOCSIS 3.0 based services, and we look forward to working closely as we head towards the reality of the 200Mb home," said Joe Cozzolino, senior vice president and general manager, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility EMEA & Asia Pacific. "Cable operators worldwide are taking steps to optimize bandwidth availability in support of ultra-broadband services and are turning to Motorola because of the deep experience in delivering proven DOCSIS 3.0 solutions into the industry."

Motorola is a leading provider of cable broadband technology with a proven track record and extensive experience in implementing advanced networks worldwide. The company recently announced worldwide shipments of more than 1,000 TX32 decoupled downstream modules. The Motorola TX32 decoupled downstream module can help to decrease operators’ cost per downstream channel up to 60 percent. The Motorola CMTS solution is CableLabs bronze-qualified and supports next generation DOCSIS and EuroDOCSIS 3.0 and channel bonding standards. In addition, the solution provides simultaneous support for DOCSIS 1.x, 2.0 and new DOCSIS 3.0 feature sets, which help enable service providers to protect previous investments.
