Motorola Mobility expands BAN product portfolio with new Optical Node

Telecom Lead America:  Motorola Mobility announced
an addition to its Broadband Access Networks (BAN) product portfolio, which is
called the Motorola VSN200 Optical Node.


The VSN200 is the latest addition to Motorola’s 1 GHz BAN
product portfolio that enables cable operators to leverage their existing
infrastructure to cost-effectively increase bandwidth capacity to offer the
new, bandwidth-consuming entertainment services that their consumers crave.


 With VSN200, cable operators will be able to
support additional HD channels, deliver more VOD support and provide faster up
and downstream bandwidth services. The VSN200 1 GHz 2X2 Optical Node provides
the smart solution to a complex issue facing service providers today.


Furthermore, with the VSN200, operators can repurpose
existing housings by efficiently installing the new system using only an
Electronics Package (E-Pack) and Lid swap, avoiding the costly downtime of
cutting out the entire node to make the upgrade.


TheVSN200 features enhanced Gallium Nitride performance
that provides high RF output levels, making it equally well suited to deploy as
a fiber-deep satellite node.


“We will continue our relentless focus on innovating
Optics and Network technology to empower our customers to meet increasing
consumer demand for more video and connectivity across all of their
screens,” said Joe Cozzolino, senior vice president and general
manager for Motorola Mobility’s Network Infrastructure Solutions business.


Motorola’s BAN portfolio also includes Modular HUB (MOTr)
that enables network simplification by replacing physical hub locations.


Furthermore, Motorola recently announced its suite
of multi-wavelength transmitters, which allow operators to further
minimize segmentation costs by conserving fiber while providing best in class
performance at every price point, for all digital and mixed analog/digital


Motorola Mobility revenues up 2% to $3.1 billion in first


Recently, Motorola Mobility posted net revenues of $3.1
billion in the first quarter of 2012, up 2 percent compared to Q1 2011.

percent growth in mobile device business. Motorola Mobility’s home segment
posted 2 percent decrease in revenues.
