The gateway software enables multimedia services to the home
Ericsson will launch its Connected Home Gateway software giving consumers the freedom to access and interact with their home multimedia devices, services and media.
Ericsson Connected Home Gateway provides a secure connection between consumers’ digital home networks and the telecommunications network and a single point of entry for IPTV and communication services, such as multimedia telephony.
Ericsson claims that by acting as a central multimedia outlet in the home, the Connected Home Gateway serves as a single service-delivery platform and allows remote management for service provisioning and maintenance, helping to minimize operational costs.
According to Ericsson, the Connected Home Gateway is compliant with telecom and consumer electronic standards, such as IMS, Open IPTV Forum and the Digital Living Network Alliance, ensuring interoperability and ease-of-use between a wide range of commercially available devices.
Jan Wareby, senior vice president and head of multimedia business at Ericsson, said: The Connected Home Gateway brings simplicity and gives users true control of their everyday communication and media services. It meets a market need, allowing operators to expand their customer base and generate revenue.
