Irdeto, a specialist in digital platform security, has announced a new partnership with KAON Broadband, the broadband business arm of KAON, a global provider of digital set top box and broadband customer-premises equipment (CPE) for pay-TV and broadband service operators in more than 90 countries.
Under the partnership, the Trusted Home platform, developed by Irdeto and Minim, will be integrated into KAON’s broadband CPE, providing both companies with a strong competitive advantage in the service provider market.
As billed by Irdeto and Minim, Trusted Home is an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven network security and Wi-Fi management solution for broadband providers (ISPs) to protect their customers’ home networks. The platform's intuitive self-care app for Android and iOS gives home users instant control of their home networks, while its service portal "transforms support teams into smart home experts overnight," claims the companies, providing AI-powered network-level threat detection and remote troubleshooting features.
The CG3000S DOCSIS 3.1 cable residential gateway is KAON’s first CPE to be integrated with the Trusted Home platform. 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.
Further, by leveraging the platform's Wi-Fi 6 technology, KAON customers will benefit from an improved wireless user experience. When combined with Trusted Home’s Wi-Fi management and security features, the partners say this high-performance, high-quality, multi-gigabit capable device will allow service providers to also ensure a secure broadband service, enabling its customers to embrace connectivity without fear.
“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," said Richard Kim, KAON’s executive VP and head of its global business unit for the Americas, Asia and Oceania regions.
“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," added Steeve Huin, CMO and head of business development and strategic partnerships at Irdeto.
