By 2006, Motorola optical technology will power the expansion of broadband services–including digital cable, digital radio, and high-speed Internet access–to over 4 million residential and business customers throughout three cities in China.
For each of these awards, Motorola will be providing the optical solutions to prepare these networks to support the introduction of digital cable, high-speed data and interactive services in the future. Under the terms of the separate agreements, Motorola will supply all electronic equipment for the hybrid fiber-coax networks, including the Motorola OmniStar GX2 optical head-end platform, fiber electronic transmitters and receivers, and optical nodes to: Changchun CATV, projected to pass over 2.7 million residential subscribers and 100,000 business customers in Changchun City by 2006; Kunming CATV, projected to pass over 800,000 residential subscribers in Kunming City by 2006; Qiqihar CATV, projected to pass over 400,000 residential subscribers in Qiqihar City by 2006.
