Technicolor’s Gateway to Provide Broadband Home Networking to O2 Customers

Technicolor (Euronext Paris : TCH ; NYSE : TCH) has signed an agreement with Telefónica O2 UK Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Telefónica, to provide its Technicolor TG587nv2 broadband advanced service gateway. The Technicolor TG587nv2 will give O2 customers high speed 802.11n wireless access to broadband as well as ethernet connectivity, making it future- proof and ready to enable additional multimedia services, as these get rolled out.

"We are delighted to have been selected by O2 in the UK for their home gateway offering. The agreement has re-affirmed our position as a leader in the production of IP devices and solutions." said Georges Laplanche, Senior Vice-President, Connect Division at Technicolor. "Consumers today expect seamless home connectivity, so high performance 802.11n Wifi has to be a part of the offering, allowing bandwidth intensive services like video streaming and media sharing over their IP networks"

With the rapid rise in smartphones, tablets and other media-rich, wireless devices in the home, the demand for media sharing is growing rapidly, and the home gateway has to support this trend. Advanced home gateway platforms such as the Technicolor TG587nv2 enable telecom operators to offer a regular flow of innovative applications to their customers, simplify usage and increase service adoption while reducing churn. Wireless distribution of enriched content in the home is one example of such services that are fast becoming a de facto requirement for deployment by major service providers worldwide.

More than a simple router, the Technicolor TG587nv2 supports key industry standards to simplify network management (via TR-069[1]) and facilitate the delivery of new services over broadband. Its hardware is future-proof, thereby ready to support video services and other emerging applications.
