London, UK -- The OpenRG residential gateway software from Jungo has been chosen by U.S. Robotics to drive a range of networking products under development for the broadband home and SOHO sectors.
The San Jose, California based company's OpenRG is a suite of software technologies that includes an operating system,drivers, remote management capabilities and applications, which enrich and simplify networking for both broadband users and service providers.
U.S. Robotics says specifying OpenRG will allow it to reduce development costs and time, and enable the company to focus on customized features that will differentiate its devices from others in the market.
"Partnering with Jungo was an ideal fit for us because of their reputation for working with broadband access device manufacturers and their expertise in the software platforms that offer value to the broadest range of networking
equipment," said Frank Sugino, strategic development manager for U.S. Robotics.
Commenting on the pact, Michael Greeson, principal analyst
with Parks Associates said: "Broadband service providers are struggling to reduce the provisioning costs associated with broadband deployment. By incorporating Jungo's OpenRG platform into its next generation of SOHO and residential gateways, U.S. Robotics can enable service providers to remotely provision and manage additional broadband services while ensuring end-users a product which makes for easy set-up and a seamless service
