Motorola has launched a cable headend solution for the European market. Developed specifically in response to the growing consumer demand for HD content, the new cable headend solution is designed for more cost effective bandwidth optimization while providing flexibility for future growth and to simplify HD channel deployment, especially as cable operators begin or expand HD services with VOD, nDVRs or time-shifted TV.

New to the platform is support for the DVB SimulCrypt Conditional Access standard, as well as full integration with DataMiner, Skyline’s widely deployed multi-vendor network management platform.

Showcased at the Motorola stand at the ANGA Cable Show 2009, in Cologne, Germany, the solution comprises the APEX1000 high density edge QAM, REM1000 redundant edge matrix, and CAP1000 2.0 CherryPicker Application Platform with MPEG-4 and MPEG-2 rate shaping.

In other Motorola news, Telia Stofa, part of the TeliaSonera telecommunications group, has selected Motorola’s SB6120e SURFboard EuroDOCSIS 3.0 cable modem to provide ultra-broadband, high-bandwidth data and multimedia services to customers throughout Denmark. Also, Virgin Media has deployed the Motorola CMTS solution to enable the delivery of rich personalized media experiences to customers in the UK.
