MAY 4, 2010 -- The Mobile Devices and Home business of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) has announced availability of the new MCN100 compact optical node, designed for European cable operators looking to meet consumer demand for higher broadband speeds and additional high definition (HD) and streaming video services.

The Motorola MCN100 is designed to extend fiber optics deeper into the cable operator networks to pedestal and street cabinet locations where form factor and speed of installation are key deployment considerations. Together with Motorola's OmniStar GX2 optical broadband transmission platform, the MCN100 creates a strong portfolio of proven optical headend and node solutions that drive scalability and affordability into cable operators' fiber deep network deployments, Motorola asserts.

MCN100 features specific to existing European cable networks include:

  • network or mains powering for outside or in-building deployment
  • two high-level RF outputs and a splitter-enabled third output to save space in cabinets and pedestals
  • full monitoring and management options.
