SoftAtHome Gateway Solution Shown on Lantiq-Powered Hardware
at Broadband World Forum 2013
Amsterdam, Netherlands – October 23, 2013 – Lantiq, a leading supplier of broadband access and home networking technologies, and SoftAtHome, provider of home operating platforms enabling convergent services for the Digital Home, are jointly demonstrating an advanced Smart Home service delivery platform this week at Broadband World Forum 2013 in RAI Amsterdam.
This partnership creates one of the most advanced Smart Home Gateway solutions on the market by combining Lantiq’s most advanced System-on-Chip (Soc) and SoftAtHome’s high end software solution.
The combined solution can be seen in Lantiq’s booth (C4 Hall 11) and in SoftAtHome’s D46.Hall 11.
The SoftAtHome ConnectAtHome software solution, which transforms operator devices into Service Delivery Platforms, will take full advantage of the Lantiq xRX300 AnyWAN SoC, accelerating both WAN and LAN data streams while leaving the main CPU free to execute advanced service applications. Thanks to the SoftAtHome application framework, the Smart Home Gateway can go beyond traditional triple-play and allow hosting of third party smart home and media applications with no disruption to operator triple play services.
“A Home Gateway powered by SoftAtHome’s software solution operating on our new xRX300 Family really makes life simpler for the end-customer and provides the basis for true smart home services”, said Dirk Wieberneit, Head of the Customer Premises Equipment Business Unit of Lantiq. “Lantiq has pioneered a ‘connect everything’ approach in its gateway SoCs, which when combined with SoftAtHome solutions enables operators to go far beyond triple-play”
“Lantiq latest chipset has the horsepower to let us bring the latest cutting edge content and communication services to the Gateway with a seamless user experience without compromising on performance,” added Michel Degland, CEO of SoftAtHome. “Our software solutions transform operator devices into service delivery platforms through a complete applications framework. With a gateway powered by ConnectAtHome solution, the end-user can easily access a new generation of services. Smart home is now a living reality.”
