Software Upgrade Eases Network Management with More Ways to Optimize SDV Infrastructure

Thursday October 29, 2009

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BigBand Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:BBND), a leader in digital video networking, today announced an enhancement to the company’s Switched Video Analysis (SVA) solution, offering cable operators further ways to leverage Switched Digital Video (SDV) architectures and BigBand’s recently unveiled video software control plane, Converged Video Exchange (CVEx™). The new SVA enhancement is a software upgrade to the industry’s most widely deployed SDV platform and offers MSOs the ability to optimize SDV assets and HFC spectrum and to maximize programming availability.

For example, service providers are using the SVA software to track success rates for tunein requests on SDV channels, to plan service group and node splits, and to optimize SDV channels line-ups in order to maximize the number of programs that can be carried in the spectrum (oversubscription) without blocking events. BigBand solutions currently execute billions of real-time transactions, yielding valuable information for network planning and increasing the relevancy of the overall subscriber experience.

Company Doubles the Density of the Industry’s Most Widely Deployed Universal Edge QAM Platform

January 27, 2010, 5:30 am EST

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BigBand Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:BBND), a leader in digital video networking, announced today that it has extended its market leadership with more than 700,000 QAMs shipped to over 60 service providers worldwide over the life of its edge QAM platforms. Additionally, the company announced commercial availability of its double density BEQ™6200 8:1 QAM, designed to give service providers twice the capacity to address the growing bandwidth demands at the edge of the network, where rack space is at a premium.

“We believe our market-leading BEQ platform gives customers the operational flexibility to implement and manage larger numbers of new and legacy QAMs with the best mix of reliability and density and path to next-generation platforms,” said David W. Heard, chief operating officer, BigBand Networks. “We’re at a tipping point in terms of bandwidth congestion at the network edge. As new applications such as high definition content, niche programming and time-shifted TV come online, congestion at the edge of the network demands denser and more cost efficient QAM platforms. With our continued investment in QAM technology, we can now offer service providers the density they need paired with the manageability and lower cost of ownership.”
