VANTIVA, Deutsche Telekom partner on Magenta Home Box Fiber
October 18, 2022
VANTIVA (formerly known as Technicolor) has partnered with Deutsche Telekom to deploy a next-generation DOCSIS 3.1 and Wi-Fi 6 gateway called Magenta Home Box Fiber. The new gateway allows Austria’s Magenta Telekom, which was recently acquired by Deutsche Telekom, to optimise broadband, gaming and Wi-Fi experiences for business and connected home subscribers with the latest Wi-Fi 6 connectivity.
“Magenta Telekom required a partner that could deliver next-generation customer premises equipment (CPE) to support the sophisticated needs of Austria’s enterprise and residential markets,” said Dominik Thauerböck, vice president of broadband market management and network expansion for Magenta Telekom. “We selected VANTIVA for its extensive expertise in developing standardized open software stacks, such as RDK, to quickly scale this deployment.”
This is the latest development in VANTIVA’s ongoing commitment to leveraging open and innovative technologies for network service providers (NSPs) around the world. The ultimate goal is to help NSPs deliver seamless connectivity and premium entertainment experiences to consumers by creating best-in-class CPE and partnering with the most ingenious companies in the connected home ecosystem.
“In addition to enhancing throughput and network performance to – and within – subscribers’ homes and workplaces, the Magenta Home Box Fiber enhances the end consumer’s experience bringing a number of managed services integrated into VANTIVA’s device. These include key features and the most relevant value-added services for our customer at this stage,” said Mercedes Pastor, executive vice president of the global customer unit for VANTIVA. “This is another important step in our strong collaboration with Deutsche Telekom Group, as VANTIVA becomes the main supplier for Deutsche Telekom’s Magenta Austria operations. This partnership enables Deutsche Telekom to enter this new market with Wi-Fi 6 gateways and maintain its competitive and differentiating posture.”
