BigBand Networks Inc. recently announced the availability of Broadcast Grooming for the company's Broadband Multimedia-Service Router (BMR), which provides cable MSOs with a multi-port, carrier-class grooming solution featuring efficiency, control and functionality.

Through the BMR, MSOs receive a "best of breed" solution for pressing broadcast needs, while at the same time embarking on a future-proof migration path, with the ability to cost-effectively add new advanced services as they grow.

With the addition of the Broadcast Grooming Module, the BMR now allows MSOs to select any combination of incoming program networks from different sources and create new packages of programmed networks for their subscribers. This conserves bandwidth, and represents a dramatic improvement over existing single port legacy systems.
