Multikabel deploys BigBand’s M-CMTS system

23 Jul 2007

BigBand Networks has signed a network expansion deal with Dutch cableco Mulitkabel for the deployment of its modular cable termination system (M-CMTS). The cable operator’s network, one of the first M-CMTS-based commercial deployments anywhere in the world, now serves more than 50,000 subscribers. Commenting on the deal, Mulitkabel’s Stefan van Dijk said: ‘The economic benefits of BigBand’s M-CMTS solution are substantial. BigBand’s solution has allowed us to roll out high speed internet services at a significantly lower cost than would’ve been incurred by a rollout with integrated CMTS from other vendors…Without M-CMTS we simply didn’t see how expanding bandwidth would be economically viable.’
