Technicolor has become the first manufacturer to deliver 100 million broadband gateways. The Paris-based manufacturer that previously used the Thomson brand has held been the world’s leader supplier for the last 10 years and has delivered 10 million gateways a year since 2005.
The 25 million mark was passed in December 2004, and it only took two years to double, reaching the 50 million threshold in January 2007. It has subsequently taken three years to double it again.
“Passing the 100 million mark demonstrates our continuous dedication to innovation and excellence in the CPE market,” said Vince Pizzica, Head of Digital Delivery, Technicolor. “We were a pioneer in both DSL and cable more than ten years ago, and since then we have always been early to market with emerging technologies. This capability to innovate enabled us to win the confidence of major network services providers through the world, because they know that we are perfectly able to anticipate their needs”.
In addition to sales, Technicolor has also significantly contributed to standards through its membership of Broadband Forum.
