Schmid Telecom Deploys Jungo's OpenRG in New SHDSL Voice/Data Gateway

7/29/2004 - Jungo® Software Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of Home/SOHO gateway software, announced that its OpenRG software platform is powering Schmid Telecom's recently deployed Pegasus Integrated Access Device (IAD). The Pegasus IAD is an SHDSL access device for broadband data access and multi-channel voice transmission on one single copper wire pair. The IAD includes an integrated router to allow it to behave as a fully managed standalone small-medium-enterprise (SME) access device, delivering voice and data services.

"Schmid Telecom sought to provide carriers with a unique broadband access solution for delivering a wide range of applications and services for the rapidly growing SME environment," said Peter Schelbert, VP Innovation Center Access Network Systems of Schmid Telecom. "By integrating Jungo's OpenRG we were able to provide our customers with business level routing and security functionality while significantly improving our time-to-market. Jungo's close and professional support during the development process enabled us to easily customize the OpenRG software and integrate it with our core technology."

The new Pegasus Integrated Access Device (IAD) offers multiple toll-quality voice channels and Ethernet-based data services over a single copper pair. DSL bandwidth is dynamically shared between voice and data to make sure available bit rate is always fully utilized while quality of service (QoS) is guaranteed. The integrated router enables the service provider to offer business customers an extension of routing services such as firewall and security services. The IAD uses the SHDSL line code, which is spectrally compatible with all other DSL services. Schmid Telecom has extensive experience in DSL solutions ensuring that the Pegasus IAD delivers the longest reach and highest performance in industry.

Jungo's OpenRG is a scalable suite of software technologies that provides CPE vendors with the infrastructure needed to bring residential and SOHO gateways, cable and DSL modems, wireless access points and integrated access devices (IADs) to market faster. Schmid's Pegasus IAD incorporates OpenRG's optimized embedded Linux distribution, communication and routing protocols, network security (Stateful Packet Inspection Firewall), zero configuration and advanced management modules.

"Schmid Telecom's Pegasus IAD is a unique product allowing carriers to offer their business customers broadband access, routing, security and voice services on a single device," said Udi Yuhjtman, Jungo's VP Business Development. "The Pegasus IAD, powered by Jungo's OpenRG, delivers a secure and cost-effective solution allowing carriers to service this burgeoning market."
