Broadband refers to cable modems.

Flip Video

With the acquisition of Pure Digital Technologies, Cisco began to sell a line of video-recording devices called “Flip Video” that had been Pure Digital’s only line of products. This line of products was not as popular as Cisco had thought it would have been, and on April 12, 2011, Cisco announced they were discontinuing all Flip camera production. Cisco’s ūmi product line, video conferencing for the home, also proved to be a short-lived bid for the consumer multimedia market and sales were discontinued.
