Vyyo To Show UltraBand Platform, Discuss Bandwidth Opportunities At Independent Show, CableLabs, ThinkEquity Events
Jul 31, 2007 (08:07 AM EDT)
NORCROSS, Ga., July 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Vyyo Inc. , a supplier of broadband access equipment for cable system operators, will highlight at a series of upcoming industry and financial events the value of its UltraBand(TM) spectrum overlay platform in driving new revenue to generate residential and business services for cable operators of all sizes.
Vyyo is demonstrating the UltraBand platform at two industry trade conferences: The Independent Show July 29-August 1 in Monterey, CA for the more than 1,100 independent cable operators that service more than 12 million subscribers, and the CableLabs Summer Conference August 5-8 in Keystone, CO. In addition, Wayne H. Davis, CEO of Vyyo, will present at ThinkEquity Partners' "ThinkBIG: A Gathering of Top-Performing Small Cap Companies," to be held August 2 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York.
"Bandwidth historically has been the foundation for new revenue growth in the cable industry," said Davis. "The UltraBand platform is the only cost- effective alternative to expensive fiber builds for operators who plan to deliver HDTV lineups of 100 channels or more, HDTV on demand and T1, DOCSIS(R) 3.0 and Ethernet services."
The Vyyo UltraBand platform is designed to allow cable companies to substantially increase bandwidth to fiber-like performance, leveraging their existing infrastructure and at a fraction of the cost (under $125 per home passed) to build new fiber networks. UltraBand leverages higher frequencies on the existing coaxial cable doubling downstream bandwidth and increasing upstream bandwidth by a factor of at least four. Using the UltraBand platform, cable system operators can create new bandwidth on a targeted basis for approximately 10% of the published cost per home of telco fiber builds, while maintaining their existing investment in their HFC networks and set-top boxes.
