Part of Motorola’s “connected home” strategy to expand consumer access to information and entertainment, the SBG1000 addresses the recent growth in home networking, which In-Stat/MDR analysts predict will grow 20 percent year over year through 2007. Motorola has combined two of its inherent strengths to reach this emerging market – the company’s worldwide leadership in wireless communications and its technology expertise in the cable business. Unlike other broadband gateways, the SBG1000 provides enhanced security, the added benefit of a print server and the foundation of Motorola’s proven cable modem technology.

The Motorola SBG1000 easily networks multiple devices typically found in the home or small office, such as printers, fax machines, telephony equipment, and multiplayer game consoles as well as desktop PCs and laptops. The integrated cable modem, switch/router and 802.11b access point enables consumers to take full advantage of their broadband connection throughout the network, while offering retail savings over the purchase of separate devices.

“This new gateway makes it easy for any consumer – regardless of how technologically savvy – to fully experience the convenience of wireless networking,” said John Burke, Motorola corporate vice president and general manager, consumer solutions business. “After decades of building networks to the home, Motorola is now leveraging its expertise to build networks within the home. The Motorola SBG1000 is an example of how, as the industry’s leading cable modem provider, Motorola can work with retailers and network operators, driving innovation to meet ever-increasing consumer demand for broadband.”
