Cox Selects BigBand for Switched Digital Video

Cox Communications, the third largest cable operator in the US, has selected BigBand Networks' switched digital video (SDV) solution for use in multiple cable systems --- including both Motorola and Scientific Atlanta set-top box environments -- and has begun to deploy the solution in its Northern Virginia market. Financial terms were not disclosed.

"BigBand's switched digital video solution gives us the ability to dramatically expand programming--particularly high-definition channels--at a low cost-per-subscriber," said James Kelso, vice president of video engineering for Cox Communications.

Cox is the third U.S. cable operator to deploy BigBand's SDV solution.
