Promo Timbuktu Software Offer with Cable Modems

It’s not often I get to talk about retail products, but cable modems are one exception to the rule. Along those lines, Motorola has launched a promotion today for anyone who buys a retail SB5101 or award-winning SB6120 series modem. With a modem purchase, you can get 50% off Motorola’s Timbuktu remote control software. Install Timbuktu on multiple computers, and you can remotely control desktops for demos, tech support, and more.

Timbuktu originated out of Netopia, which Motorola acquired back in 2007. It may seem far afield from the typical range of products in the Home business, but when you consider the increased focus on service assurance and diagnosing Internet-related problems in the home, it makes a lot of sense.

The Motorola software comes in three different versions, and can be purchased for as few as two computers or for more than 100 in an enterprise environment. A twinpack regularly costs about $70, $90, and $100 for Windows, Mac, and Multiplatform versions respectively. The half-off discount is a nice little back-to-school bonus if you’re in the market for a modem upgrade.
