A key theme of Motorola Mobility’s attendance at this year’s ANGA Cable expo has been network evolution, specifically a focus on technologies that enable cable operators to get more out of their existing networks.
Proving that they are right at the technological cutting edge as regards network evolution, Virgin Media has already deployed Gallium Nitride (GaN)-enabled nodes and amplifiers, high-performance electro absorption optical transmitter solutions and a new series of transmitters to significantly increase the capacity and reach of its existing fiber networks.
Kabel BW meanwhile has gone live with our DOCSIS 3.0 RX48 decoupled upstream module that will allow the German cable provider to offer much higher upstream speeds using fewer DOCSIS channels, while at the same time opening up the possibilities for new revenue generating business and wireless backhaul services. The RX48 module effectively doubles Kabel BW’s upstream potential – making it much easier to address new opportunities using their existing network.
Service providers are at the beginning of a new era of converged experiences. The internet and social media platforms have the potential to disrupt existing business models, but we’re finding cable operators have many advantages over these one trick ponies. In any case though Virgin Media and Kabel BW have to be ready to quickly deliver services to meet their subscriber’s demands, and the innovations we’re announcing at ANGA are part of makes this possible.
We’re excited that our customers are working closely with us right from the very start on these new products that offer them considerable business and operational value without having to re-tool their existing networks.
