Comcast to Order Moto Modem


Comcast Corp. will place an order for Motorola Inc.’s “SBV5220” combination cable modem and phone adapter, the vendor said.

The embedded multimedia-terminal adapter completed an extensive hardware- and software-qualification process, Motorola said.

The SBV5220 is equipped with an integrated lithium-ion battery backup, which works for up to eight hours in the event of a power outage.

Comcast expects to offer the SBV5220 in the second half of 2006 to its Comcast Digital Voice customers nationwide, Motorola said.
