Cox Case Study on Better Set-Top Provisioning

It’s been more than a year since I last talked about the Motorola OffLine Loader, the OLL1000, but a new video case study with Cox makes it a good time to revisit the technology as deployed by an actual customer. In brief, the OLL1000 supports high-speed code downloads to set-tops in a secure offline warehouse environment. This solves the bandwidth challenges of provisioning boxes on a live HFC network, and allows operators to pre-load a large number of set-tops before a planned code upgrade.

Cox Communications in the Orange Coast area serves roughly 340,000 households, and provisions between 500 and 700 set-tops a day. Those set-tops include 13 different models, all of which can now be provisioned in bulk and sent out for field use thanks to the OffLine Loader. According to execs, the OffLine Loader paid for itself twice over in one year just in warehouse savings. And as you’ll see from the video above, it’s provided other benefits as well.

For background on the Motorola OLL1000, check out this post from 2009. You can see the official product page here. [PDF link]
