Legerity Joins the Home Gateway Initiative


AUSTIN, Texas - Legerity, Inc. has joined the Home Gateway Initiative, an open forum created to boost the market of home communication services to the millions of broadband customers worldwide. As a continuing effort to help improve the residential voice infrastructure, Legerity will participate in the development of residential gateway standards.

With over 26 years of circuit design experience within the telephony industry, Legerity looks to provide a valuable insight to equipment makers and service providers. Legerity’s membership to the HGI complements its continuing activities with other industry forums and standards bodies and will enable the company to make direct contributions to important market issues.

“The Home Gateway Initiative is a premier forum for addressing the technology and market issues facing the deployment of residential gateway equipment and services,” said Rick Bye, senior segment marketing manager and Legerity representative to HGI. “With a membership base consisting of more than 65 companies, many of those HGI members are direct or indirect customers and partners of Legerity, from different areas of the industry and multiple locations across the globe, this forum is in a unique position to affect communication standards and quality improvement issues.”

“Legerity’s membership in the Home Gateway Initiative will bring an important perspective to the programs being discussed,” said Paolo Pastorino, Chief Technology Officer at HGI. “As a leading voice line interface provider for most residential gateway equipment, Legerity can contribute with a valuable, ubiquitous point of view.”

Current Legerity solutions include voice line interface circuits for customer premise equipment, such as cable and DSL modems, and include metallic loop (or line) testing software, which can enable service providers to easily diagnose and resolve problems, resulting in lower customer support costs and reduced churn from unhappy customers.
