Partner communications selects jungo's openrg™ software for new smartbox™ gateway

Jungo Ltd, a leading provider of broadband residential gateway software solutions, and Partner Communications, a leading Israeli mobile telecoms operator, have reached an agreement that sees Jungo integrating its OpenRG™ residential gateway software into Partner's new SmartBox™ home gateway, part of the operator's innovative new home communications offering.

OpenRG software delivers Partner Communications a range of capabilities as well as a platform for introducing and launching new value added services. With Jungo's remote upgrade capability, an operator can load customized middleware onto deployed gateways from almost any vendor, and therefore can introduce new services without the need to replace its installed base. OpenRG also provides a suite of functionalities to substantially reduce operational costs. These include transparent fault-finding, and user-focused troubleshooting that helps minimize support calls.

With SmartBox, launched in December 2008, Partner Communications' customers will enjoy advanced broadband services such as 802.11n wireless network, advanced VoIP capabilities including integrated DECT, call hijacking between cellular and fixed line, home media sharing and other services.

OpenRG is a hardware-agnostic gateway software platform which gives operators maximum freedom in selecting gateway hardware, and thanks to its remote upgrade capability, OpenRG provides full flexibility for future service enhancements. This saves operators substantial costs when expanding and upgrading existing and future gateway designs.

Jungo Ltd., an NDS Group company, is a provider of broadband home value-added service solutions. Jungo's flagship products, OpenRG™ (residential gateway software platform) and OpenSMB™ (small and medium business gateway software platform) enable broadband Operators to deliver managed revenue-generating services to the digital home.

Jungo's CEO, Eran Rom is also confirmed to speak at the upcoming CONNECTIONS Europe Summit in Nice, France on March 31st.
