Motorola will unveil a portfolio of 'connected home' broadband products at the CeBIT 2003 trade show in Germany next week.
The US electronics giant said that it intends to use the world's largest IT trade show to unveil its wireless cable modem gateways, digital set-top boxes, telephony and home networking products.
Broadband service providers will get additional revenue opportunities through the devices, according to the manufacturer.
"The Motorola cable modems and set-tops deployed throughout Europe provide a solid foundation for delivering new broadband services and applications," said Paul King, corporate vice president and general manager for Motorola Broadband in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
"The innovative products we are showing at CeBIT are designed to drive broadband adoption by providing new ways for subscribers to take advantage of the broadband pipe coming into their homes."
Motorola will demonstrate two wireless cable modem gateways. The SBG1000 includes a cable modem, five-port Ethernet router and switch, advanced firewall, and a print server with an 802.11b wireless access point.
The company will also introduce the SBG900, based on the SBG1000, which provides different features and functions to meet a variety of consumer home networking needs.
In addition, Motorola will offer two platforms (802.11b and 802.11g) for wireless home networking devices.
The product line includes adapters (Ethernet, notebook, USB), access points (Ethernet wide area network and wireless local area network), broadband routers (Ethernet wide area network/wireless and Ethernet local area network), and Ethernet routers and switches.
Motorola will also preview its 'Simplefi' wireless digital audio receiver, which enables consumers to wirelessly send MP3s and internet audio from home computers to stereo systems.
