High Value and Increased Data Rates
Motorola’s easy-to-use SB6121 SURFboard DOCSIS
3.0 Cable Modem unlocks the potential of offering
innovative high-bandwidth data and multimedia
services to customers.
Backwards compatible to DOCSIS 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0,
the SB6121 also supports both IPv4 and IPv6,
Advanced Encryption Services, and all other DOCSIS
3.0 standards.
Utilizing the power of DOCSIS 3.0, the SB6121
enables channel bonding of up to four downstream
channels and four upstream channels, which allows
an operator to offer their customers advanced
multimedia services with data rates of well over 100
Mbps in each direction. The SB6121’s higher-speed

As part of Motorola DOCSIS 3.0 Ultra-Broadband
family of products, the SB6121 includes an enhanced
tuner that supports up to a 1 GHz downstream input,
which allows operators to increase the frequency
spectrum for deployment of new high-value services,
such as bandwidth on-demand, commercial services,
interactive gaming, and IPTV, to their customers.
•
The SB6121 features a 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet
(RJ-45) port, as well as intuitive, easy-to-read
front-panel operational status LEDs. Operators
can optionally activate dual colored LEDs for their
customer to have visual verification of bonded
channels and GigE link use.

In addition to delivering
high-quality gateways to
its customers, Motorola is
also committed to helping
its customers reduce their
environmental footprint. We
approach this in several ways:
improving the environmental
profile of our products, running
our operations in a safe and
energy-efficient manner and
helping our customers to be
greener when they use our
products.
.
.
Motorola’s SURFboard
portfolio of customer premises
equipment (CPE) helps service
providers lower their energy
consumption, thereby helping
them reduce their carbon
footprint. Motorola has a
global commitment to be
part of the solution to climate
change, and has worked for
years to continually improve
our environmental profile. We
are in step with our customers
and their increasing interest
in partnering with a company
that helps them reduce their
environmental impact, while
offering compelling products
to help them grow their ecoconscious customer base.
Motorola is working to make
products with a reduced
environmental impact. In
the development of our
next-generation SURFboard
portfolio of customer premises
equipment, we have focused
on energy efficiency, lead-free
manufacturing, and packaging
/ recycling enhancements.
Depending on models
and market, our units are
ENERGY STAR qualified and
compliant with European
Code of Conduct regulations.
In addition, the devices and
power supplies are lead-free
and RoHS compliant. Finally,
all new SURFboard CPE
use environmentally friendly
package designs. The CPE
are available in single bulk
pack boxes that eliminate
the use of suspension plastic
and reduce box size, thereby
reducing waste and transport
costs. Motorola’s SURFboard
modem’s packaging is 100%
recyclable and is marked with
standard recycling codes
to make it easier for our
customers to identify recycling
opportunities.
Motorola’s Service Assured DOCSIS® 3.0 Solutions enable
you to deliver increased bandwidth, enhance security, and
cost-effectively deploy data services to your bandwidthdemanding consumers — all while maximizing current
infrastructure investment and lowering capital spend.

Upstream
* Actual speeds will vary,
and are often less than
the maximum possible.
Data transmission speed is
approximate and depends on
the configuration and capacity
of your network, as well as
the amount of traffic on the
network.
** Actual data throughput will
be less due to physical layer
overhead (error correction
coding, burst preamble, and
guard interval).
Certain features may not be
activated by your service
provider, and/or their network
settings may limit the feature’s
functionality. Additionally,
certain features may require
a subscription. Contact your
service provider for details.
All features, functionality, and
other product specifications
are subject to change without
notice or obligation. DOCSIS
3.0 modem capabilities are
dependant on the services
available through the CMTS.
