Adelphia Strikes Up BigBand DTV Platform


BigBand Networks Inc. will announce Monday that Adelphia Communications Corp. is rolling out its digital-simulcast platform in Los Angeles.

The operator will also tap voice over Internet protocol using BigBand’s gear.

Adelphia is completing tests for VoIP, vice president of data-engineering operations Tom Buttermore said, in anticipation of soon launching the service. The operator will use BigBand’s “Cuda” cable-modem-termination system and “FastFlow” broadband-provisioning system.

The MSO is using BigBand multimedia routers for its digital-simulcast launch.
