Irdeto partnership with KAON Broadband
February 23, 2021
Irdeto, the digital platform security specialist, has announced a new partnership with KAON Broadband, the broadband business arm of KAON, a global provider of digital set top box and broadband customer-premises equipment (CPE) for pay-TV and broadband service operators in more than 90 countries.
The Trusted Home solution, developed by Irdeto and Minim, will be integrated into KAON’s broadband customer premise equipment (CPE), providing both companies with a strong competitive advantage in the service provider market.
The CG3000S DOCSIS 3.1 cable residential gateway is KAON’s first CPE to be integrated with its Trusted Home solution. By doing so, operators will now be able to deploy multi-gigabit services over their existing Hybrid Fiber Coax networks at a time when data traffic for HD/UHD video streaming and complex internet usage at home is increasing; and by leveraging Wi-Fi 6 technology, KAON customers will benefit from an improved wireless user experience. When combined with Trusted Home’s Wi-Fi management and security features, this high-performance, high-quality, multi-gigabit capable device will allow service providers to also ensure a secure broadband service, enabling its customers to embrace connectivity without fear.
“It is exciting to be working side-by-side with another reputable brand in the broadband CPE and cybersecurity business to safeguard connectivity for home and enterprises,” said Richard Kim, KAON’s Executive VP and Head of Global Business Unit for Americas, Asia and Oceania.
“We are enthusiastic to have the opportunity to work with KAON Broadband and leverage their sales resources and local market presence globally to promote our Trusted Home solution,” said Steeve Huin, CMO and Head of Business Development and Strategic Partnerships at Irdeto.
