Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited, the subsidiary of Reliance Industries Limited, has built a world-class all-IP data secure future-proof network with latest 4G LTE technology in India. TeamF1 Networks (“TeamF1”), a subsidiary of D-Link Limited and a leader in embedded networking and security software solutions for wired and wireless applications, today announced its partnership with Jio for delivering a state-of-the-art home gateway solution, joint reference solutions for seamless “connected-home” experience for Media, Television (IPTV, STB), Telephone (VoIP), Gaming, and Internet.
The Home Gateway Solution (HGW) is a comprehensive turnkey software package from TeamF1 enabling the next-generation of rich, auto-provisioned residential gateways and CPE routers deployed by Jio.
Today, with the increase in IP-connected devices in every home, a variety of applications such as IPTV, media streaming, video-on-demand, remote security surveillance, online gaming, peer-to-peer and social networking have to be supported by Jio deployed devices. At the heart of this, IP “home area network” is usually a wired/wireless router that is implemented and managed by Jio.
With the high-speed delivery of rich content proliferating, provisioned CPE gateways have grown more sophisticated and are no longer just traditional Wi-Fi/NAT/routers. The partnership of Jio and TeamF1 offers HGW with capabilities like media storage/sharing, control of other DLNA and VoIP devices, home automation, security, and lighting control. These intelligent HGW devices demand iron-clad security, rock-solid stability, high performance, and smart management of bandwidth through advanced QoS techniques.
The partnership has been evolved in the past four years or so, and TeamF1 solutions help in powering Jio devices across multiple OEMs/ODMs, silicon vendors.
“We are excited to partner with Jio and assist them to continue to play an imperative role in the Digital India Initiative for the country and benefit the generations to come,” said Dr. Ted Kuo, CEO, and Chairman of TeamF1. “Going forward, our ‘connected-home’ partnership will explore solutions for home surveillance through IP cameras and video analytics, and for smart home through IoT sensors and actuators, data analytics, and machine learning technologies.”
