BigBand Networks has announced its ultra dense 40:1 QAM for its Media Services Platform (MSP). The breakthrough solution is designed to enable service providers to cost effectively scale and optimize the edge with dynamic bandwidth agility on the entire 50MHz to 1GHz RF spectrum using a platform that supports highly reliable multi-application video services delivery.

“With the advent of more narrowcast services, CMAP-class platforms will be needed to increase QAM-per-port density without using additional powering or rack space,” said Jorge Salinger, VP of access architecture at Comcast, in a statement. “BigBand is addressing the demanding access requirements facing MSOs to enable an easier migration towards next-generation converged service delivery at the edge.”?

BigBand’s platform-based approach ushers in a new paradigm in QAM technology, combining high density with a high availability multi-service platform that offers the ability to add new applications and share bandwidth efficiently across multiple applications. The chassis is designed to support in excess of 3,800 QAMs or as many as 40 QAMs per port to meet the access needs of even the most demanding hub locations.
