Jungo, a provider of broadband residential gateway software services, and Partner Communications, an Israeli mobile telecoms operator, have reached an agreement that sees Jungo integrating its OpenRG residential gateway software into Partner’s new SmartBox home gateway, part of the operator’s new home communications offering.
OpenRG software delivers Partner Communications a range of capabilities as well as a platform for introducing and launching new value added services. With Jungo’s remote upgrade capability, an operator can load customized middleware onto deployed gateways from almost any vendor, and therefore can introduce new services without the need to replace its installed base.
OpenRG also provides a suite of functionalities to substantially reduce operational costs. These include transparent fault-finding, and user-focused troubleshooting that helps minimize support calls.
With SmartBox, launched in December 2008, Partner Communications’s customers are expected to use advanced broadband services such as 802.11n wireless network, advanced VoIP capabilities including integrated DECT, call hijacking between cellular and fixed line, home media sharing and other services.
Eran Rom, CEO of Jungo, said: Jungo is proud to have been chosen to be part of this bold new venture, and to support Partner Communications with our feature-rich, reliable, high-quality residential gateway software. We look forward to helping Partner Communications customers experience the benefits of a truly digital home, enabled by our OpenRG software.
