Canada's Shaw Pick Motorola for DOCSIS 3.0-enabled services

Shaw Communications has committed to deploy a DOCSIS 3.0-qualified cable modem termination system (CMTS) containing Motorola BSR 64000 TX32 Decoupled Downstream Modules, and DOCSIS 3.0-certified SURFboard cable modems. Shaw is a long standing Motorola customer. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The TX32 downstream module slides directly into one of the 16-slots of the Motorola BSR 64000 chassis, ultimately offering a five-fold increase in bandwidth capacity while reducing the cost per downstream channel. The Motorola TX32 supports 32 QAM channels in a single slot within the Motorola BSR 64000 CMTS/edge router. The solution enables cable operators to deliver significantly increased bandwidth for whole-home media services to new DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS 3.0 cable modems, such as Motorola's SURFboard SB6120 cable and SBV6220 digital voice modems, while preserving operator investment in legacy DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS 1.x and 2.0 cable modems.
