Vodafone and Technicolor Connected Home are planning to rollout next generation DOCSIS 3.1 gateways to support enhanced broadband access for multi-user and multi-device traffic in the home.
The deployment of the DOCSIS 3.1 Gateways Integrated with Wi-Fi 6 in the German market will commence in the next few weeks. Since 2019, Vodafone has been using Technicolor gateways equipped with Wi-Fi 5.
“This announcement marks another achievement in the successful partnership with Vodafone which supports multiple initiatives for improving the consumer experience related to connectivity,” said Giovanni Tumino, Vice President, Technicolor Connected Home, UK Ireland, Central South Europe, and EMEA Distribution.
Germany is one of many markets where the Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in an increased demand for broadband services. “Within the home, there is a growing need to support multi-user, multi-device traffic. Vodafone is committed to meeting the increasingly stringent demands of German subscribers and is pleased to be working with Technicolor Connected Home to bring next generation gateways to market,” says Markus Delfs, Head of Group Hardware Solutions for Vodafone.
The telco has 11 million broadband subscribers in Germany.
