At the annual invitation-only CableLabs Summer Conference in Keystone, CO, numerous vendors are showcasing their wares for members of the cable industry's R&D consortium. We expect to hear of more as the mountain confab progresses, but so far, some of them include:
- SMK Electronics, showing a family of remote control solutions that use RF to power voice command and gesture-based navigation. The remotes use Bluetooth Smart, Wi-Fi Direct, ZigBee and RF4CE wireless technologies to power user interface (UI) options including voice command and 6-axis gesture-based navigation.
- PeerApp, showcasing its virtualized content delivery platform supporting use cases around live streaming and upstream caching.
- Sandvine (TSX:SVC), showing a cloud-based policy solution for SMB and enterprise customers to view, control and protect their traffic. It uses PeerApp's local content delivery capabilities.
- SpectrumMax, demonstrating its CableCell voice and messaging over WiFi service and CablEnable BSS/OSS for MSO entry into the mobile and messaging space.
