Rogers picks Cisco for SDV in Ontario
Rogers Cable is going to use Cisco’s switched digital video (SDV) system for its Ontario customers.
When the installation is completed, Rogers Cable customers will receive switched services enabled by Cisco’s SDV servers and encryption and quadrature amplitude modulators (QAMs).
Cisco’s SDV service and support applications offer a variety of software support tools, including those that provide detailed viewership, automatically detect network issues and enable capacity planning. By deploying Cisco’s solution, which includes a real-time data collection engine that powers capacity planning and system monitoring applications, service providers can reduce customer impact while increasing operational performance.
Separately, J:Com is now getting shipments of the Cisco DPC3000 DOCSIS 3.0 Channel-Bonded Cable Modem for use in its J:Com NET Ultra 160M Course broadband service, which offers download speeds of up to 160 Mbps.
The Cisco DPC3000 was among the first modems to be awarded CableLabs DOCSIS 3.0 certification.
“The launch of our broadband service, which offers download speeds of up to 160 Mbps, has led to an overall rise in Internet subscribers,” said Tatsuya Yoshihara, deputy general manager of the Service Strategy Division at J:Com, the largest broadband cable operator in Japan.
