Who's that under there?
Motorola has gone Incognito, joining the IP and DNS solutions provider to create a dynamic host configuration protocol service (DHCP) for broadband IP networks. Motorola will distribute exclusively Incognito's IP Commander, a multi-platform DHCP and domain name service, to cable operators and vendors.
With the IP Commander, cable operators can add, change and move subs; regionally administer subscriber groups and customize the process of bringing users and new devices online.
"This DHCP solution provides the tools and interfaces operators need to deploy and manage new multi-service network technologies, such as high-speed data with quality-of-service and voice- over-IP," Pete Sherlock, vice president and general manager, Network Infrastructure Solutions for Motorola's IP Network Systems business unit, tells CED.
The DHCP technology also lends itself to the self-installation process for cable of DSL modems. According to Motorola, the IP Commander tools are user-friendly, and remote administration Web-interfaces make it easy to manage efficient networks.
"We are pleased to add this product to our integrated Broadband Network Management solutions, as a way to help operators provide the latest applications to their subscribers, with the unparalleled speed, flexibility, and service they must deliver to keep customers satisfied and remain competitive," says Sherlock.
