Motorola has announced that MetroCast, a family-owned cable television operator with more than 100,000 Internet subscribers in nine states, will deploy the Motorola BSR 64000 TX32 Decoupled Downstream Module to scale its Internet service across its broadband network.

Rolling out DOCSIS 3.0 with the TX32 Decoupled Downstream Module will ultimately provide MetroCast customers access to higher-speed Internet tiers supporting rich streaming and potential on-demand services through additional downstream capacity and channel bonded-enabled broadband connectivity.

The downstream module enables up to eight times existing peak rate and six times average throughput capacity to MetroCast’s existing BSR 64000 chassis.
