Technicolor, a global tech player in the media and entertainment sector, has announced that Australia’s leading telecommunications services provider, Telstra, has chosen Technicolor to develop two new home gateways designed to deliver greatly improved broadband and Wi-Fi experiences for Telstra customers:
Telstra Gateway Max 2 and the Telstra Gateway Frontier. The Telstra Gateway Frontier is Australia’s first ISP-supported hybrid mobile/fixed line gateway. The technology ensures that Australian consumers have immediate network access ‘out-of-the-box’. This means consumers have immediate access to broadband services via 4G LTE, even as fixed line services are being arranged. Moreover, if there should be a problem with fixed line connectivity after installation, the gateway can automatically switch over to mobile networks to offer consumers uninterrupted broadband service.
Telstra Gateway Max 2 and Telstra Gateway Frontier use the latest dual-band (2.4 & 5GHz) 4×4 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology with Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) to keep more devices connected in the home.
