Issy-les-Moulineaux Cedex, France, Nov. 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PRESS RELEASE
Telstra and Technicolor Deploy Most Advanced
Home Gateways for Australian Subscribers
Telstra Gateway Max 2 and the Telstra Gateway Frontier Play Apply Technicolor Homeware Software to Ensure Network Connectivity and Wi-Fi Performance
Paris (France), 17 November 2016 - Technicolor (Euronext Paris: TCH; OTCQX: TCLRY) a worldwide technology leader in the media and entertainment sector, has announced that Australia's leading telecommunications services provider, Telstra, has chosen Technicolor to develop two new home gateways designed to deliver greatly improved broadband and Wi-Fi experiences for Telstra customers: Telstra Gateway Max 2 and the Telstra Gateway Frontier.
The Telstra Gateway Frontier is Australia's first ISP-supported hybrid mobile/fixed line gateway. The technology ensures that Australian consumers have immediate network access "out-of-the-box." This means consumers have immediate access to broadband services via 4G LTE, even as fixed line services are being arranged. Moreover, if there should be a problem with fixed line connectivity after installation, the gateway can automatically switch over to mobile networks to offer consumers uninterrupted broadband service.
Telstra Gateway Max 2 and Telstra Gateway Frontier use the latest dual-band (2.4 & 5GHz) 4x4 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology with Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) to keep more devices connected in the home.
The two gateways offer faster Wi-Fi speeds and better coverage than any current home gateway product in the Australian market. Each can support up to 35 devices simultaneously.
Both gateways have embedded NFC chips for easy Wi-Fi connection: Android phones can be paired simply by tapping them against the gateway. The gateways also use Technicolor's Homeware software that leverages Technicolor's 20 years of expertise in set-top boxes, home gateways and content security.
Technicolor, a worldwide technology leader in the media and entertainment sector, is at the forefront of digital innovation. Our world class research and innovation laboratories enable us to lead the market in delivering advanced video services to content creators and distributors. We also benefit from an extensive intellectual property portfolio focused on imaging and sound technologies. Our commitment: supporting the delivery of exciting new experiences for consumers in theaters, homes and on-the-go.
Technicolor shares are on the NYSE Euronext Paris exchange (TCH) and traded in the USA on the OTCQX marketplace (OTCQX: TCLRY).
