BigBand to show HD, VOD via IP delivery over cable modems

The company’s modular cable modem termination system delivers HD VOD and IPTV over cable modems.

BigBand Networks will show how its modular cable modem termination system (M-CMTS) solution can deliver HD video-on-demand and IPTV over existing DOCSIS cable modems this week at ANGA Cable 2007 in Cologne, Germany.

Though cable IPTV is a relatively nascent technology, one operator is already using BigBand’s Cuda CMTS — a key element of its M-CMTS solution — to deliver IP-based VOD to subscribers.

BigBand’s exhibit will include a multi-vendor demonstration that leverages a VOD server from BitBand, a Camiant policy server and application manager, a VOD session manager from eventIS and Zappware’s set-top box middleware to deliver high-definition VOD over DOCSIS 2.0 modems. The company also will demonstrate its M-CMTS architecture with DOCSIS 3.0 channel bonding and a channel bonding cable modem to deliver SD and HD to an IPTV set-top box.
