Swisscom Unifies its Home Gateway Software Platform with SoftAtHome
Swisscom completes Internet-Box broadband product range with “Plus”, “Standard” and “Light” versions, all based on SoftAtHome’s Software Platform. They are showcased at Broadband World Forum in London.
Paris, October 20, 2015 –SoftAtHome (Stand C70), a provider of home operating platforms enabling convergent services for the digital home, announces it will showcase Swisscom’s three broadband home gateways, the Internet-Box Standard, the Internet-Box Plus and the Internet-Box Light, during Broadband World Forum in London. The new gateways are all powered by the same SOP platform from SoftAtHome. Unifying all software enables Swisscom to launch targeted features on the complete product line with reduced OPEX for the operator.
After the Internet-Box Plus, the ultra-fast 1Gbps Home Gateway launched two years ago, the Internet-Box standard and the Internet-Box Light complete the broadband product range with entry-level versions of the home gateway. The Internet-Box Standard delivers a range of innovative features without media centre capabilities, while the Internet-Box Light is an entry-level version providing traditional voice service for end-users.
SoftAtHome enables Swisscom to deliver on its key customer engagements of speed, reliability, simplicity, security and mobility. With the new gateways, all enabled through the same software platform, Swisscom will be able to accelerate its Voice-over IP transition and offer dual-play Internet to its voice-only customers.
“We found the flexible digital home platform we were looking for with SoftAtHome’s SOP and were able to easily deploy multiple versions of our Internet-Box from a single software,” said Mr Andreas Martschitsch, Head of Home Network of Swisscom’s Residential Business. “Our new gateways deliver all the functions our different customer segments now expect and are also future-proof.”
“We have been working successfully with Swisscom for three years now and we are proud of their continued trust in our technology,” said Michel Degland, CEO of SoftAtHome. “They benefit particularly from our software platform, which has enabled them to launch all their home gateways range in a smooth way. This approach increases the operator’s agility to deploy new services in a shortened time-to-market. Moreover, Swisscom benefits from advanced features to anticipate bugs and problems, thus significantly decreasing the product’s OpEx.”
