BigBand Supplies Systems for China's Xiamen CATC

Xiamen CATV, which serves more than 400,000 subscribers in southeastern China's Fujian province, is using BigBand Networks' Cuda cable modem termination system (CMTS) and FastFlow Broadband Provisioning Management software to deliver high-speed data and IP video.

BigBand said Xiamen selected Cuda in part for its support for key Ethernet functions--such as virtual local area networks (VLAN) and point-to-point protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE)--that are designed to allow the CMTS to interoperate with the Fujian operator's other network equipment. The operator added BigBand's FastFlow software to configure its IP services for multiple subscriber profiles and devices.

BigBand also noted that t six Chinese cable operators are deploying the company's Broadband Multimedia Services Router (BMR) to process and deliver digital video. The operators are Wuxi Cable TV and Changshu Cable TV in Jiangsu province; Jieyang Cable TV and Qingyuan Cable TV in Guangdong province; and Hefei Cable TV and Huaibei Cable TV in Anhui province.
