Cox Reups with BigBand


BigBand Networks Inc. has signed a new five-year agreement with Cox Communications Inc. that includes extending the MSO’s use of the vendor’s “FastFlow” broadband-provisioning manager to Cox high-speed-Internet and voice-over-Internet-protocol subscribers.

BigBand said its FastFlow equipment supports voice and Internet access from a single server. The server also supports tiered data services, bandwidth on-demand and Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification video delivery.

Cox has used BigBand gear since 2000, the vendor added.
