Next Generation High-Bandwidth
Services and Home Networking in a
Stylish Package
The SBG6580 SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 Wireless
Gateway enables the delivery of innovative
ultra-broadband data and multimedia services
as well as high-bandwidth home networking.
Designed for seamless mobility, Motorola’s
SBG6580 is a fully integrated all-in-one home
networking solution that combines the
functionality of a DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS 3.0
cable modem, four-port 10/100/1000 Ethernet
switch with advanced firewall, and an 802.11n
Wi-Fi access point in a sleek, stylish package
for the sophisticated consumer. It’s the perfect
networking solution for the home, home
office, or small business, allowing users to
create custom networks with a high-speed
ultra-broadband internet connection and the
ability to share files and peripheral devices
across the home networks. Cost-effective,
efficient, and secure, the SBG6580 enables
users to maximize the potential of their
existing resources, while benefiting from next
generation high-bandwidth services.
Increased Data Rates
Utilizing the power of DOCSIS 3.0, the
SBG6580 enables channel bonding of up to
eight downstream and four upstream channels
– which allows an operator to offer their
customers advanced multimedia services,
capable of data rates of over 300 Mbps in
DOCSIS and 400 Mbps in EuroDOCSIS in the
received (downstream) data stream and over
100 Mbps in the send (upstream) data stream.

The SBG6580’s high-speed services enable
operators to:
• Protect their installed base of premium
high-speed data customers.
• Deliver high-bandwidth, multimedia
services to residential customers.
• Deliver competitive, high-capacity
commercial services to their business
The SBG6580 eliminates the need for standalone routers, hubs, and access points. Its four,
one-gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 ports, an integrated
802.11n Wi-Fi access point with an internal 2 x
2 MIMO antenna array, and switched on-board
radios (2.4 or 5 GHz) enable users to maximize
the high-bandwidth potential of their home or
business network.

Wi-Fi Access
One way to avoid the challenges of rewiring or
contending with varying wiring in the home is
to eliminate wires altogether. The SBG6580 is
equipped with a next-generation 802.11n Wi-Fi
access point.
802.11n: 802.11n, the most current superset
of the widely-used Wi-Fi standard utilized
by consumers in more than 100 million
deployed PCs and mobile devices, is a
compelling networking option for operators and
consumers. The SBG6580’s 802.11n integrated
access point eliminates the need for wires
altogether, enabling users to easily wirelessly
network all of their 802.11 a/b/g/n equipped
Dual Radio Operation: The SBG6580 is
configured with radio technology that offers
802.11 b/g at 2.4 GHz and 802.11n at 5 GHz to
support maximum LAN flexibility.
Switched radio operation enables the SBG6580
to work with the lowest common denominator
Wi-Fi peripherals, allowing consumers to
network previous- and next-generation
computers, gaming consoles, and other
peripherals anywhere in the home.
With Motorola’s SURFboard integrated home
networking solutions, service providers can
provide seamless interaction among consumer
electronics, mobile handsets, and PC devices,
enabling high-quality media streaming, and
supporting efficient sharing of media within
and outside of the connected home. Capable of
supporting converged IP-based entertainment
services, the SBG6580 enables the delivery of
advanced whole home entertainment services
and a consumer’s personal media experiences.
Built-In Security
The SBG6580 is equipped with a number of
security features to offer consumers peace of
mind, including:
• Firewall with DoS protection and intrusion
• DHCP, NAT, VPN endpoint, VPN tunneling
• Wi-Fi security WEP/WPA/WPA2 with easy
setup wizard
• User-friendly, secure mobile pairing
• Wi-Fi Wizard removes end-user complexity
for secure PC client setup
• Pushbutton configuration for WPS compliant
User-friendly Installation
Motorola’s integrated SURFboard solutions
include stateful firewall protection and stateof-the-art Wi-Fi network security. They are also
shipped with a CD-ROM including Motorola’s
Wi-Fi installation wizard – an easy-to-use
secure Wi-Fi network setup and connection
tool that seamlessly configures a secure Wi-Fi
connection on a user’s machine. When the
Wi-Fi wizard is finished, a secure WPA (Wi-Fi
Protected Access)-encrypted Wi-Fi connection
is established to the gateway, protecting the
user’s machine from hacker attacks. Motorola’s
enhanced embedded software facilitates
Wi-Fi deployments with high levels of quality,
reliability, and customer satisfaction, with low
operational and support costs for the MSO.
Internal MoCA Reject Filter
This feature eliminates the possibility for
MoCA interference to the IP Signals with the
implementation of an internal 1 GHz low pass
filter. This reduces both the complexity and
the cost of installing an external filter. MoCA
is being implemented by Cable Operators as
a means to transport video signals to other
devices on the network. These signals can
interfere with the DOCSIS signal reception
by the Gateway. The filter removes the
interference before it disrupts IP data. You can
verify the presence of the filter by a stamped
indication on the rear panel that reads 1 GHz
LPF. This filter will not interfere with any of the
IP traffic for which the Gateway is used.
Service Assurance
Supporting the Wi-Fi home network is a new
challenge for the cable industry. Motorola
Wi-Fi Gateways assist operators in launching
wireless home networks for additonal revenue
opportunities and subscriber satisfaction. By
combining the highest-performing and lowest
cost of ownership modems in the industry,
with easy-to-use Wi-Fi installation and pairing
tools, as well as advanced remote management
features, Motorola is offering an all-in-one
approach to broadband home networking. In
addition, Motorola’s field-proven EDGE Device
Management Platform provides the MSO with
intelligent management, auto-provisioning,
and remote management features to improve
accuracy, efficiency, and customer satisfaction.
These value-adding features enable remote
device administration for improved accuracy
and reduced support costs. Motorola’s EDGE
platform is a scalable, carrier-grade software
platform that enables cable operators to
remotely access, configure, monitor, and
troubleshoot their full portfolio of consumer
devices, home networks, and services.
