Siemens Picks Jungo
MUNICH -- The strategic cooperation between SHC and Jungo leverages the strength of best-of-breed software with a global manufacturer and brand, to open up the opportunity for service providers to offer new innovative services with substantially lower operating costs. The introduction of the advanced joint solution decreases maintenance costs and reduces the development time for new applications. This results in a quicker and easier roll-out of services such as IPTV and VOD.
Through the introduction of new services, providers can generate revenues, enhance customer retention and differentiate from the competition. End-users benefit as well from new additional services tailored to their needs, additional security features and a very easy, self-activation process, using simple new Plug and Play technology.
Jungo's OpenRG software supports all common home and access networks; enabling a home network to include DSL and cable internet, advanced telephony, fixed mobile convergence (FMC) and home storage. Siemens Gateways based on Jungo's OpenRG residential gateway software enable operators to supply additional applications and services such as high-quality Voice over IP, data security services, video services and remote management. All features and functions are available on a single, open, scalable and ready-to-use platform. The platform can be configured and upgraded remotely. It can also be easily adapted by the service provider to suit the individual needs of various customer groups.
"The need for bandwidth is constantly growing," explained Dr. Jochen Eickholt, CEO, SHC. "The demand for moving pictures from the internet is increasing video portals and services, online gaming and IPTV are all becoming more and more popular and all this can be available only by using state of the art software. Thanks to our partnership with Jungo, Siemens Gigaset now offers a sophisticated, cost-effective, sustainable solution, thereby allowing operators to react flexibly to the growing expectations of their customers."
