The SB6180 has a hefty eight downstream and four upstream channels, and it just came through CableLabs Certification Wave 70 for DOCSIS 3.0 with flying colors.  If all that was gibberish to you, it means the gateway is certified to support channel bonding. Eight bonded channels downstream and four bonded channels upstream give the gateway potential speeds of up to 300 Mbps and more than 100 Mbps respectively.

As Jeff Baumgartner points out, the new SB6180 is the first D3-certified product from Motorola with a Broadcom chip. It also has an embedded 802.11n wireless access point, four-port router, and remote management capabilities.
