I’m still on vacation here, but of course that doesn’t mean the news stops. Motorola racked up another DOCSIS 3.0 win today with Japan’s largest broadband operator, Jupiter Telecommunications (J:COM). The deal includes both Motorola CMTSs (the BSR 64000) and cable modems (the SB6120s). For some reason the press release isn’t showing up on the Motorola media center, so I thought it worth drawing attention to the announcement. Even as CableLabs certification waves roll on, channel-bonding deployments continue around the world for those who don’t want to wait. Particularly in parts of Asia where the 100 Mb home is expected, waiting for channel bonding isn’t really an option.
