IP Video for Cable Operators


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.
