NORCROSS, Ga., June 21, 2007 / / -- Vyyo Inc. (Nasdaq: VYYO), a supplier of broadband access equipment for cable system operators, announced today that it has been selected by GeoResults, a leading telecommunication and database marketing firm, as GeoResults' "Business Services Platform of the Year for Cable."
Vyyo was selected for recognition by GeoResults based on its ability to enable the broadest array of cable business services needs over operators' existing HFC infrastructure. Vyyo solutions include the UltraBand(TM) spectrum overlay platform that doubles downstream and quadruples upstream bandwidth, allowing operators to provide T1 and 145 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 ultra high-speed data.
"Cable operators are most interested in solutions that enable them to tap into the lucrative business services market without upgrading their current HFC plant," said Ted Shields, president and CEO of GeoResults. "In our work with the industry, Vyyo has shown that its solutions provide the greatest combination of cost-effectiveness and economic opportunity without the significant investment costs associated with upgrading to a fiber network infrastructure."
"GeoResults is highly respected for its expertise in evaluating and pinpointing where business services can be most successful for our industry," said Wayne H. Davis, CEO of Vyyo. "We're pleased that they have recognized how our solutions can help operators to quickly and efficiently capture the high-ARPU, long-term agreements that characterize business services customers."
Estimates of the value of the business services market to cable operators range as high as $130 billion per year. Kagan Research estimates that total cable revenue for commercial data and voice services will surpass $10.7 billion by 2009 as cable plant stretches to pass 60% of the businesses in the U.S. GeoResults estimates that cellular backhaul cumulatively will be a $42 billion business through 2011.
The Vyyo UltraBand platform is designed to allow cable companies to substantially increase bandwidth to fiber-like performance, leveraging their existing infrastructure and at a fraction of the cost (under $125 per home passed) to build new fiber networks. UltraBand leverages higher frequencies on the existing coaxial cable doubling downstream bandwidth and increasing upstream bandwidth by a factor of at least four. Using the UltraBand platform, cable system operators can create new bandwidth on a targeted basis for approximately 10% of the published cost per home of telco fiber builds, while maintaining their existing investment in their HFC networks and set-top boxes.
