With this product we extended our product offer so we can serve more customers.”

The device, which has a built-in firewall for comprehensive protection, includes a four-port Ethernet router and a wireless 802.11g WiFi access point with improved performance. Lifecycle costs are minimised as the device can be maintained and upgraded remotely thanks to its compliance to open standards such as TR-069. The product comes in a new sleek design.

The Thomson TG703 gateway is being shown for the first time at CES 2010.
