Motorola Releases 32 QAM channel Module for Boosting CMTS Bandwidth

Motorola announced the commercial availability of a TX32 Decoupled Downstream Module for its BSR 64000, CMTS/EDGE router. The TX32 solution requires one slot in the BSR 64000, whereas competitive alternatives require two slots to provide the same downstream density. The Motorola TX32, which supports 32 QAM channels, will increase the downstream capacity of deployed BSR 64000s by more than 500% and significantly reduce the cost per downstream QAM. The TX32 also incorporates IPv6 and Advanced Encryption Services (AES).

Motorola noted that channel bonding is driving the initial move to DOCSIS 3.0 in Europe and the TX32 enables cable operators to efficiently deliver accelerated personal media experiences, including fast Internet services, in a highly competitive broadband market.
