By increasing the robustness of the access network, operators can offer more high-definition TV programming, on-demand services, time-shifted TV, and interactive multi-media applications.

“The IP DSLAM solutions that we are bringing to the U.S. are currently widely deployed and trusted internationally,” said Kevin Keefe, vice president of marketing, Motorola Home and Networks Mobility. “With this proven track record of performance and capability we are able to deliver incredible bandwidth potential over existing copper networks. This IP DSLAM portfolio emerges on the scene as a reliable known entity and helps mitigate deployment risks for our customers. We expect this portfolio will be very appealing to service providers as they look to expand capacity for powering the connected home.”
