Motorola Debuts DOCSIS 2.0 CMTS

Motorola introduced a fully-featured DOCSIS 2.0 cable modem termination system (CMTS) with a compact design that enables cable broadband operators to extend services into new and emerging market venues.

Motorola's new Broadband Services Router 2000 (BSR 2000) is a 1 rack unit (1U) unit that can be deployed as a stand-alone device, or in small clusters that support small or medium sized distribution hubs, multiple dwelling unit (MDU) facilities, or hospitality locations. The product supports Motorola RFSentry functionality, which enables advanced management of spectrum though an extra receiver port. It also offers QoS features to support services such as VoIP, virtual private networks (VPN) and multimedia services. The product also includes support for wireless broadband applications.

Other features include:

  • Based on DOCSIS 2.0 and EURDOCSIS 2.0 standards, including A-TDMA and S-CDMA with logical channels, and provides up to three times the upstream bandwidth for increased delivery of high-speed commercial services

  • Architected for system redundancy and allow operators to increase overall service reliability and uptime for thousands of flows at wire-speed to enable Service Level Agreements (SLAs)

  • SmartFlow QoS classification and RFSentry functionality, including an extra receiver port to enable Advanced Spectrum Management. RFSentry enables operators to monitor upstream performance while maintaining channel throughput.
