Broadband Awards 2016: SoftAtHome Shortlisted for Best Innovation in Virtualization
Colombes, France – September 22nd, 2016– SoftAtHome, a software provider for operator CPE devices enabling convergent services for the digital home, is proud to have been shortlisted in the Best Innovation in Virtualization for its SOP8 solution. The ceremony will take place at the Leadenhall building, during the Broadband World Forum in London.
For SoftAtHome, the cloud no longer stops at the broadband router but extends across the home network to the end device. SOP8 supports all features while replicating for the Home gateway the benefits already associated with NfV in the cloud. These include hardware consolidation, replacement of individual dedicated boxes with software running applications on general purpose boxes that leverage proven and robust Data Centre technology. SOP8 also delivers flexibility, enabling the computing platform to be repurposed for scalability and testing or trialing of new functions. It avoids being locked into a given hardware vendor and reduces both OPEX and CAPEX, as well as power consumption and service provisioning time. Barriers to market for new entrants are removed.
The Broadband Awards are the most prestigious and coveted awards in the industry as they are judged by the operators who actually deploy the technology. This year’s Awards winners will be announced during Broadband World Forum in London, on October 19th, 2016.
