70% DOCSIS 3.0 Market Share & the 200MB Home

There are two notable DOCSIS 3.0 announcements coming out of the ANGA cable show this morning. First, Telia Stofa (part of TeliaSonera) has decided to deploy Motorola EuroDOCSIS 3.0 cable modems. Perhaps not all that interesting in and of itself, but tucked into the release is a note that Infonetics has put a number on data supports significant Motorola leadership in the D3 space. Specifically, by comparing Infonetics D3 market data with Motorola shipment numbers at the end of 2008, Motorola comes out with 70% market share in DOCSIS 3.0 CPE. The last time I looked closely at market share numbers, DOCSIS 3.0 wasn’t even part of the equation. Apparently the numbers have been good to Motorola with the D3 variable now in the mix.

Second, Motorola announced that Virgin Media is using the Motorola BSR 64000 CMTS for its DOCSIS 3.0 deployments along with the TX32 modules for added downstream bandwidth. Virgin made headlines earlier this month for its 200-Mbps service trials. Given Motorola’s involvement with Virgin, I’m hoping to get more detail as the months progress on how consumers feel about the 200MB home. Pretty good, I’d expect.

[...] Freeing up the channels means doing things like switching from analog channels to digital channels, because a cable operator can pack more digital channels than analog ones into a single slice of spectrum. This allows a cable operator to provide the same number of channels while freeing up spectrum for IPTV trials. Such programs are underway in the U.S. but the IPTV transition is a little further off. In the meantime, the rollout of DOCSIS 3.0 has helped boost revenue at Motorola and Arris, another cable equipment vendor. Motorola estimates it now has 70 percent of the DOCSIS 3.0 market. [...]
