Motorola Launches Netopia VDSL2 Gateways

Motorola launched its Netopia 7000 Series VDSL2 Gateways designed to deliver high-speed data and IPTV services. Deployment scenarios include fiber-to-the-neighborhood (FTTN) applications, the 7000 Series gateways support high-bandwidth VDSL2 over a single copper pair in the "first mile" from the subscriber's home to the fiber node.

The Motorola Netopia 7000 VDSL2 Gateways are available in three different configurations in order to address the worldwide demand for VDSL2 technology. The various configurations are powered by Broadcom with PhyR, Conexant and Ikanos Communications chipsets.

The 7000 Series gateways feature advanced QoS, VPN and IGMP implementations. All 7000 Series gateways offer comprehensive remote manageability, including centralized remote provisioning, troubleshooting, and management via TR-069 compliant ACS systems, including Motorola's NBBS device management platform. Motorola NBBS also enables the ability to manage devices, such as IPTV set-tops, connected to the gateway through support for the DSL Forum TR-069, TR-111 and TR-135 specifications.

The Motorola Netopia 7000 Series Gateways are also equipped with "3-D Reach Extreme Wi-Fi" technology, which provides extended wireless range, performance, and coverage for 802.11 b/g wireless applications. The gateways include "Wi-Fi Protected Setup" pairing technology, which enables typical users, who possess little understanding of traditional Wi-Fi configuration and security settings, to automatically configure new wireless networks, add new devices, and enable security.
