Tilgin powering first VTech broadband gateway with its Home Gateway software

Stockholm, Sweden, October 21, 2013: Tilgin, a leading provider of solutions for multiplay and next-generation broadband access, on September 5th announced a strategic partnership with VTech, the world’s largest suppliers of cordless telephones and a manufacturer of other telecom products. VTech’s first broadband gateway powered by Tilgin’s gateway software, HGA, will now be launched at the Broadband World Forum in Amsterdam.

Tilgin and VTech’s first project to implement the HGA software into VTech broadband gateways has led to the launch of the RV200.

VTech’s RV200 is a full gigabit gateway with gigabit interfaces and wireless LAN 802.11n, 300Mbits.  It is also equipped with the new generation DECT, CAT-iq. The RV200 is powered by Tilgin HGA allowing full service routing, storage and remote access and Wi-Fi hotspot.

“We are delighted with the speed Tilgin succeed in porting their Home Gateway Software, HGA, to our hardware. This has worked better than expected, allowing us to launch the RV200 quickly. We believe that this product will address the end user segment cost efficiently and we are looking forward to presenting it to operators at the BBWF 2013 in Amsterdam.” says Mr. C H Tong, President of VTech Telecommunications Limited.

“We have developed the HGA software platform over the last 15 years and have over time collected a vast experience of different operator network scenarios.  We strongly believe that our software experience in combination with VTech’s proven track record as a world class hardware provider is a winning combination.” says Mats Victorin, CEO at Tilgin and continues “The RV200 is our first step and we look forward to our continued cooperation.”
