Smart Home Services pioneer Plume and the Connected Home Division of Technicolor hace signed a collaboration to rapidly expand the availability of advanced Smart Home Services to broadband providers and their subscribers.

The partnership will enable Technicolor Connected Home to enrich their broadband Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) portfolio with Plume’s revolutionary Consumer Experience Management (CEM) Platform, which combines highly-personalized front-end consumer services, and intelligent data-driven back-end support tools. At the same time, Plume will benefit from expanded market reach through access to new broadband open CPE platforms, offered by Technicolor Connected Home.

 

Central to the partnership is pre-integration and support of OpenSync—the fastest growing open-source framework for the smart home—on the existing and new Wi-Fi 6-based open CPEs from Technicolor Connected Home, including cable-, xDSL-, and xPON-gateways, and Wi-Fi access points. Today, OpenSync powers close to one billion connected devices across approximately 19 million locations worldwide, and provides an open silicon-to-cloud framework that enables the rapid deployment and management of digital home services from the cloud.

Technicolor and Plume will jointly market their combined offering through Technicolor Connected Home’s HERO Partner Program, a strategic partnership initiative designed to accelerate the introduction of new innovative solutions to the service provider community.
