Siemens Home and Office Communication Devices Leverages Gateway Middleware from Jungo
Joint press release from Jungo and Siemens Home and Office Communication Devices
Siemens Home and Office Communication Devices (SHC), a leading manufacturer of broadband routers as well as DECT and IP phones, and Jungo Ltd., a leading provider of broadband value-added service solutions are joining forces to supply network owners and internet service providers with next-generation advanced service-gateways. Siemens’ advanced Gigaset Gateways powered by Jungo’s OpenRG™ software platform will enable service providers to offer their customers new services and home entertainment applications, such as internet protocol television (IPTV) and video on demand (VOD).
The strategic cooperation between SHC and Jungo leverages the strength of best-of-breed software with a global manufacturer and brand, to open up the opportunity for service providers to offer new innovative services with substantially lower operating costs. The introduction of the advanced joint solution decreases maintenance costs and reduces the development time for new applications. This results in a quicker and easier roll-out of services such as IPTV and VOD.
Through the introduction of new services, providers can generate revenues, enhance customer retention and differentiate from the competition. End-users benefit as well from new additional services tailored to their needs, additional security features and a very easy, self-activation process, using simple new Plug and Play technology.
Jungo’s OpenRG software supports all common home and access networks; enabling a home network to include DSL and cable internet, advanced telephony, fixed mobile convergence (FMC) and home storage. Siemens Gateways based on Jungo’s OpenRG residential gateway software enable operators to supply additional applications and services such as high-quality Voice over IP, data security services, video services and remote management. All features and functions are available on a single, open, scalable and ready-to-use platform. The platform can be configured and upgraded remotely. It can also be easily adapted by the service provider to suit the individual needs of various customer groups.
“The need for bandwidth is constantly growing,” explained Dr. Jochen Eickholt, CEO, SHC. “The demand for moving pictures from the internet is increasing – video portals and services, online gaming and IPTV are all becoming more and more popular and all this can be available only by using state of the art software. Thanks to our partnership with Jungo, Siemens Gigaset now offers a sophisticated, cost-effective, sustainable solution, thereby allowing operators to react flexibly to the growing expectations of their customers.”
”Combining Siemens Home and Office Communication Devices’ global brand, manufacturing abilities, and product capabilities with Jungo’s proven software products results in market-leading residential gateways for broadband operators", said Eran Rom, CEO, Jungo. “SHC has many years of experience, first-class hardware and superior design at its disposal – the ideal basis for Jungo to deliver our know-how and innovative gateway software solutions.”
Siemens Gateways based on OpenRG will be available starting Spring 2008.
