J:COM Puts Motorola DOCSIS 3.0 Modems in Homes Starting TODAY

In a serendipitous moment, I had a call this morning to talk about DOCSIS 3.0 CPE updates, and I learned that J:COM in Japan has completed trials and is starting to install Motorola’s channel-bonding modems in subscriber homes TODAY. The latest status reports from the lab have found no issues with the SB6120 modems, and J:COM is apparently eager to fulfill subscriber orders coming in. Word is that thousands of users have already signed up for the DOCSIS 3.0 service.

The SB6120 modems are the same ones awaiting certification from CableLabs, but interestingly, they are meeting far more difficult requirements in J:COM’s deployment than they’re likely to see in the Cert Wave process. Cable operators almost always need enhancements to CableLabs-certified devices to make them work with their unique networks. For example: specific user interface customizations, technical reporting capabilities and redundancy support. I guess a standard can only go so far.

There was other thing I had confirmed on my call this morning. Motorola has a DOCSIS 3.0 voice platform (i.e. not just data-only CPE) that is ready for lab testing at customer sites.
