Motorola Unveils Software, Router For Cable Operators
Motorola is moving to enhance its cable offerings with announcements Wednesday of Broadband Services Router (BSR) 2000 and software release 4.1 for its BSR 64000 CMTS/Edge Router.
Noting that the BSR 2000 router was designed to accommodate mission-critical services, the firm said the robust router will effectively support VoIP, VPNs, and multimedia applications. In addition, the router supports wireless applications.
The software release will similarly offer improved ways of delivering VPN networking, video conferencing, and a wide range of data, voice, and video applications.
"Software release 4.1 is a key building block of Motorola's seamless mobility vision, enabling service providers to deliver always-on, always-connected multimedia applications and services to customers in and around their homes," said Motorola's Charles Dougherty in a statement. "This new software release taps the powerful capabilities of the Motorola platform, and provides cable operators with enhanced tools." Dougherty is corporate vice president, Motorola's Connected Home Solutions unit.
Both the software release and the BSR 2000 router support DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS 2.0 including A-TDMA and S-CDMA with logical channels. The BSR 64000 release also uses DOCSIS 2.0 for its support of PacketCable Multimedia services.
