BigBand Networks said WOW! Internet, Cable and Phone has completed a deployment of Cuda cable modem termination system (CMTS) gear as part of an effort to boost broadband access speeds and to deliver enhanced voice-over-IP (VoIP) services.
WOW!, which also uses BigBand technology to deliver digital video services in parts of Illinois, Michigan and Ohio, now uses the vendor’s platforms to support each of its video, voice and data offerings. The service provider also uses BigBand’s BMR router to deliver video.
WOW! said the choice of BigBand was dependent in part on the equipment supplier’s roadmap for capacity increases with a modular-CMTS architecture, as well as support for DOCSIS 3.0 downstream channel bonding.
