SoftAtHome, HUMAX extend partnership
October 14, 2022
SoftAtHome, an independent software company for broadband, video, and analytics, and HUMAX Networks, a provider of video and broadband customer premises equipment (CPE), are extending their partnership to home gateways.
Both partners are developing open-source solutions as members of the prpl Foundation. SoftAtHome and HUMAX Networks have been partners for several years for video solutions. They are now teaming up for joint connectivity solutions, such as Home Gateways and Wi-Fi repeaters, using prplOS.
With this extended partnership, operators will benefit from open-source-based solutions for their Internet equipment within the home. With prplWare, prplOS, and prpl mesh, operators have access to shared services to transform the gateway into a full-service platform for the connected home and to offer new innovative services to their customers.
Since 2016, SoftAtHome has been an active member of the prpl Foundation, the open-source software organisation, and is playing the role of primary code developer and code maintainer for the prpl carrier-grade broadband and CPE open-source stack.
HUMAX Networks is a leading global company that provides optimal products for Internet service providers worldwide through continuous research, development, and innovation. HUMAX Networks’ xPON gateway is a hardware platform designed to meet various customer needs. It is expected that it will be able to respond more quickly and effectively to different market demands through cooperation with SoftAtHome.
“As partners, HUMAX Networks and SoftAtHome are sharing a vision of how open-source specified by the prpl foundation is the key to developing the gateway of tomorrow, capable of managing all the services in the home,” said David Viret-Lange, CEO of SoftAtHome. “A result of our collaborative work will be demonstrated at Network X.”
“We are happy to see our active partnership on set-top boxes extending to Home gateway and Wi-Fi repeaters”, added Jerry Lee, CEO of HUMAX Networks, Inc. “We are convinced that from now on, Internet service providers will truly see all benefits they can obtain thanks to our GPON&XGS-PON Gateway powered by SoftAtHome prpl based solutions.”
