Hello,

At the moment there are no plans (that I am aware of) for adding to the current approved modem list.

Sorry, wish I had better news for you.

Regards,
Keith

If its already on Rogers technically it will work. The down side is if your connection goes down, or you experience issues you are SOL on support.

Does this mean that the approved modem lists for each TPIA are completely different? Yet they all settled independently on the SB5101N, SB6120, DCM425 and DCM475?

No, it simply means that I am not aware of an upcoming change.

I apologize, I overlooked this part of your post (thanks Teddy). I will ask around on Monday and see if I can get any information on this.

I have sent it to the internal contacts for discussion. No update on it since then.

Actually, I have not received an update. I know there is a lot of talk about our hardware line since the CBB release.

Let me poke again.

Thanks,

Andre

I just got an update that we will have a few people internally test them...

Keep in mind this does not mean we will actually start selling them though

Cheers,

Andre

Presumably it does mean they are officially supported though, if you bring one from outside?

Any word on new modems? Isn't there some provision where each TPIA can ask for one free modem approval per year? Surely we are looking at a few new models then.
(I did try to look it up, and I'm not finding it now, so it might just be an error on my part....)

No word yet.

Although, it would be nice to have one free per year

If it turns out to be true that we can have one free one per year then its an absolute no brainer to go for the SB6141 for ATPIA since it uses the same firmware family as the SB6120 and SB6121 except that it supports 8x4 bonding! I really don't want to get stuck with a Technicolor/Thompson.

I'm thinking now I might not want to switch-up to any of the top few tiers unless we can get more newer model modems approved pronto. So get on the horn with Motorola and work out something for the firmware; even if it means using flashing rigs or some kind of inhouse TFTP since Rogers said in the tariff's they're not responsible for the firmware - IMHO that just puts it in your court on that count irregardless of manufacturer or model.

I'm sure once we get a line of units approved there will be hundreds like myself that would be interested in doing a group buy through TSI directly from Motorola at wholesale rates - just because modem manufacturers won't sell direct to public ugh, I know I hate that but its survivable if TSI can work something out between users and the manufacturer!

One other note: The SB6141 came out in 2010; and I don't know yet when the SB6180 did; but if we can have something more powerful and more current with stable firmware then by all means introduce a newer Google/Motorola (Googlerolla) SurfBoard for Aggregated Use. There are lines of modems emerging that do have support for more channel bonding 16x8, 25x8 and better; some of those are legacy Docsis 3.0 while others are cutting edge Docsis 3.1, we won't concern ourselves with D3.1 units at this time though.
