Cable operators rely on solutions from Motorola for migrating to the "Internet Era of TV," at the pace that makes the most economic sense for them. Motorola’s market-leading solutions, coupled with over 50 years of deployments and award-winning innovation, are a confidence-inspiring recipe for successful roll-out of IP-based triple-play services. As operators gradually evolve from MPEG-2 to IP transport of video services, Motorola’s comprehensive portfolio of solutions and our field-proven experience are key elements to cost-effective migration.
With our next-generation solutions, operators can streamline operations, reduce the number of truck rolls, cross-sell additional services, provide innovative new service bundles, raise their existing subscriber revenues, and increase market share — all while efficiently delivering high-quality, service-assured IP-based video, voice and data experiences.
Features and Benefits
In this increasingly competitive business environment, cable operators can gain a competitive edge by delivering new services to an integrated all-IP home network. Moving to an all-IP solution enables a richer set of experiences, streamlined costs, and faster evolution of services. This in turn leads to reduced churn and higher revenues per household, which ultimately results in a better bottom line.
The migration toward IP video is a complex business decision, and the pace at which operators introduce IP video services depends on their appetite for risk and expense. That’s why before investing in a full IP video infrastructure, cable operators increasingly rely on solutions that deliver robust IP-based services within the home while preserving existing QAM infrastructure — solutions that enable cost-effective and gradual migration toward IP video delivery. Cable operators can leverage IP video today to blend broadcast content with service provider–developed content, giving subscribers a rich and memorable entertainment experience.
Motorola helps MSOs enable media mobility while providing a compelling and consistent experience across all devices on the home network. Operators gain an advantage in the market by enabling the connected home to centrally access video, data and voice services through a centralized gateway. And since cable operators gain the ability to provide content to any IP device in the home, they can more effectively compete with other IP content providers.
Finally, operators benefit from Motorola's Whole-Home Service Assurance Platform, a software suite based on 20-plus years of industry-leading remote-control technology experience. This exceptionally robust technology is the foundation of Motorola's remote-device management and customer-care solutions, and allows operators to leverage Motorola’s proven platforms to deliver reliable, full-featured ultra-broadband IP-based services.
SURFboard® Modems and Gateways Motorola’s SURFboard digital home media gateways simplify the convergence of IP-based communication and video services, while enabling a seamless transition for the existing MPEG-2 transport video infrastructure. They deliver advanced whole home entertainment services, ultra broadband HSD and telephony services, and high-bandwidth whole-home networking.

The "Era of Internet TV" is upon us. It is creating exciting opportunities for cable operators to offer compelling new services while building longer-lasting relationships with subscribers.
Motorola offers cable operators a comprehensive suite of solutions for delivering robust, IP-based services — anywhere, any time, and on any IP-enabled device. With Motorola’s solutions, operators determine for themselves if they want to leverage existing QAM infrastructure and enable a cost-effective migration to IP-based service delivery, or employ simulcast IP services, thereby better enabling multi-screen experiences.
At the heart of Motorola’s home solution are the SURFboard® Digital Home Media Gateway products that make the first step towards an IP home, cost-effective. Motorola’s gateways deliver advanced entertainment services, ultra-broadband HSD and IP telephony, and high-bandwidth home networking.
Motorola’s advanced set-top box products offer a hybrid configuration capable of handling today’s MPEG-2 transport streams, as well as tomorrow’s IP transport streams via simple software upgrade. To complement the home gateways and set-top boxes, Motorola offers a suite of whole-home service-assurance solutions that minimize truck rolls, lower operational expenses and improve customer care. Additionally, Motorola’s Communications Convergence Engine (CCE) suite of software products enable operators to rapidly converge, design, package, deploy and manage a broad range of compelling content and services. CCE provides service providers a unified platform for managing communications and content services regardless of access infrastructure.
Building upon decades of innovation and deployment expertise, Motorola provides the standards-based IP solutions that help operators worldwide efficiently deliver data, voice, and video services to both residential and enterprise customers while reducing support costs and increasing customer satisfaction.
