The CCAPS vendor Irdeto has announced a new partnership with KAON Broadband, the broadband business arm of the Korean digital set-top box and broadband CPE provider KAON. Irdeto’s Trusted Home solution, which it jointly developed with Minim, will now be integrated into KAON’s broadband CPE.
The CG3000S DOCSIS 3.1 cable residential gateway – KAON’s first to be integrated with the Trusted Home solution – will enable operators to deploy multi-gigabit services over their existing Hybrid Fiber Coax networks. When combined with Trusted Home’s WiFi management and security features, service providers will now be able to optimise the broadband experience of their customers, enabling them to confidently enjoy the full benefits of the connected world.
“It’s 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,” commented Richard Kim, KAON’s Executive VP and Head of Global Business Unit for Americas, Asia and Oceania.
Steeve Huin, CMO and Head of Business Development and Strategic Partnerships at Irdeto, said his company is excited to have the opportunity to work alongside KAON Broadband, and will benefit from their local market presence and sales resources.
Trusted Home, by Irdeto and Minim, is an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven network security and WiFi management solution for broadband providers that protects their customers’ home networks. Its intuitive self-care app for Android and iOS gives home users control of their home network and its service portal transforms support teams into smart home experts overnight, delivering AI-powered network-level threat detection and remote troubleshooting features.
This announcement comes hot on the heels of another partnership deal with a key CPE provider (see Trusted Home now available for cable operators). Irdeto and Minim continue to expand the availability of their solution, working alongside CPE vendors to do so. With this deal, Irdeto and Minim increase their reach to another 150 Pay TV and broadband operators, further strengthening their proposition – particularly in Asia-Pacific.
