HORSHAM, Pa. –- The Mobile Devices and Home business of Motorola, Inc. have announced that the long-running Motorola BSR 64000 Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) establishes industry-density and power-efficiency leadership over comparable hardware of its kind. This provides further proof of the company’s systems expertise and engineering leadership in cable broadband solutions.

With a more than three-fold decrease in wattage required per port, the Motorola BSR 64000 becomes the most power efficient I-CMTS on the market on a per-DOCSIS-channel basis. In addition, Motorola’s fully redundant I-CMTS chassis offers greater density than any other comparable solution available in the market today. Combined, this creates the lowest I-CMTS power performance rating (kilowatt-per-hour to DOCSIS channel ratio) in the industry, and the BSR 64000 becomes the best environmental option for broadband operators and the most cost-effective solution for managing ongoing operating costs.

“Density and power performance are critical to our cable operator customers,” said Joe Cozzolino, senior vice president and general manager, Motorola Mobile Devices and Home. “With the Motorola CMTS solution, we are helping operators manage physical space constraints and lower operational costs coming from the need to power and cool racks of hardware. It’s a fully scalable solution, and it’s designed as a cost-effective means for meeting growing consumer demand for advanced broadband and evolving video over IP services.”

The Motorola BSR 64000 supports the widely-deployed TX32 Decoupled Downstream and new Motorola RX48 Decoupled Upstream modules. Through this highly scalable solution, Motorola can help cable operators achieve capital savings of as much as 60 percent over traditional upstream and downstream modules.

In addition, the RX48 delivers significant energy efficiency, with a per channel power reduction of 81 percent more than previous modules. The RX48 module, offering nearly 1.5 Gigabits-per-second of capacity, will be available in the fourth quarter of this year.
