KAON has integrated Irdeto’s Trusted Home agent into its latest DOCSIS 3.1 WiFi 6 broadband customer-premises equipment.
Irdeto, a global software security and media technology company, has announced a new partnership with KAON Broadband, the broadband business arm of KAON. The Trusted Home solution, developed by Irdeto and Minim (OTCQB: MINM), will be integrated into KAON’s broadband customer premise equipment (CPE), providing both companies with a competitive advantage in the service provider market.
The CG3000S DOCSIS 3.1 cable residential gateway is KAON’s first CPE to be integrated with its Trusted Home solution. By doing so, operators will now be able to deploy multi-gigabit services over their existing Hybrid Fiber Coax networks at a time when data traffic for HD/UHD video streaming and complex internet usage at home is increasing; and by leveraging Wi-Fi 6 technology, KAON customers will benefit from an improved wireless user experience.
Commenting on the development, Richard Kim, KAON’s Executive VP and Head of Global Business Unit for Americas, Asia and Oceania, said: “It is exciting to be working side-by-side with another reputable brand in the broadband CPE and cybersecurity business to safeguard connectivity for home and enterprises.”
Steeve Huin, CMO and Head of Business Development and Strategic Partnerships at Irdeto, added: “We are enthusiastic to have the opportunity to work with KAON Broadband and leverage their sales resources and local market presence globally to promote our Trusted Home solution.”
