Multimedia Apps Drive Residential Gateway Growth

Broadband service providers continue to evolve their customer premise equipment (CPE) requirements, as growing consumer demand and new multimedia applications expand the digital home market.

According to the latest market study by In-Stat, residential gateway unit shipments were up 18.1 percent from the previous quarter and 37 percent from the same quarter last year.

This growth surge was lead by Europe which posted more than a 30 percent increase in unit shipments. Technicolor was the global leader in both unit shipment and revenue market shares.

"The overall Broadband CPE market grew in 2Q10 but this was predominately as a result of significant increases in Residential Gateway shipments," says Brad Shaffer, Industry Analyst at In-Stat. "This is a continuation of an on-going trend that began in 4Q09."

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards.
