VANTIVA showcasing CPE solutions for connected home at CES
January 5, 2023
VANTIVA, formerly known as Technicolor, is returning to the world’s leading consumer electronics trade show to present a number of innovative broadband access, wireless connectivity and video entertainment solutions for the connected home of today and tomorrow.
As 2023 begins, there is much uncertainty in the market; however, several new technologies within the customer premises equipment (CPE) sector are poised for launch or greater deployment, including Wi-Fi 7 and 5G fixed wireless access (FWA).
During CES 2023, VANTIVA will showcase the following offerings (as well as others) that support network service providers (NSPs) in delivering next-generations services and applications:
- Carrier grade Wi-Fi 7 gateway – VANTIVA unveiled the first fully operational gateway embedded with Wi-Fi 7 in the fall of 2022. During CES 2023, VANTIVA will demonstrate the delivery of robust Wi–Fi 7 connectivity and the critical elements that must be in place for carrier-grade gateways, including: next-generation housing, mechanical design, antennas, components, software and thermal management. Scenarios on display for Wi-Fi 7 connectivity will include examples of the improved power, efficiency and reliability of multi-link operations (MLO) and 4K QAM capabilities.
- 5G Fixed Wireless Access — 5G FWA deployments are rapidly on the rise globally. VANTIVA is demonstrating outdoor and indoor solutions that support 5G FWA connectivity to — and throughout — the home. VANTIVA’s 5G Omni Outdoor CPE is a device that consumers can easily install by themselves on an external wall or balcony and that is connected to an indoor router. It is an ideal solution to get the benefits of available C-band (around 3.5GHz) capacity. For homes that are less susceptible to signal attenuation through walls, VANTIVA has developed the Cobra 5G, an indoor device that integrates advanced Wi-Fi router technology.
- Augmented Fitness Solution — Set-top boxes (STBs) are evolving from a single function (video delivery) device to a versatile multi-function platform that opens the door to a new generation of digital lifestyle experiences in the home. VANTIVA will demonstrate how its high-performance JADE set-top box incorporates Bluetooth connectivity, allowing connected-home fitness enthusiasts to cycle the iconic roads of the Tour de France from the comfort of their homes using their TVs.
- Soundscape — VANTIVA’s award-winning STB, Soundscape, will be on display at CES 2023. Soundscape combines STB features, powered by Android TV 12 software, with eight JBL speakers, and 150 watts of rich sound powered by Dolby Atmos. Soundscape is a next generation offering that takes the entertainment experience – including video and gaming to the next level, complementing the stunning visual images offered by today’s TVs with immersive 3-D audio.
