Jungo Launches USB Solution to Enable WIFI and 3G Connectivity on Set-Top Boxes

(PresseBox) (Amsterdam, Netherlands – IBC Hall 1, Stand A71, ) .
- Complete LAN and WAN USB connectivity software for STBs
- Enables WiFi connectivity to home networks via USB WiFi dongles
- Enables 3G return channels via 3G USB modems
- Provides upgrade facility for both new and legacy STBs

Jungo Ltd., a leading provider of connectivity software and driver development tools, today announced the launch of its advanced TV set-top box (STB) USB connectivity software solution. The new solution connects a standard STB to any home or wireless network via USB.

By utilizing the STB’s USB port, which is standard on the majority of new devices, the Jungo solution extends the active life of the STB by enabling it to support new, ARPU-generating services. These include Video on Demand (VOD), video streaming, broadcast-Internet convergence and interactive services that require a return path.

Jungo provides an all-in one solution, including the USB software on the STB, WiFi protocols and 3G connectivity. It can be used with a WiFi dongle, to connect the STB to a home network, or with a 3G USB modem.

By upgrading legacy STBs, the Jungo solution enables operators to meet market demand with the introduction of new features and services such as Video on Demand (VOD) or interactive features that require a return path, without the expense of upgrading STBs already in the market.

”Modern STBs require extended connectivity capabilities for LAN and WAN networks,” says Ophir Herbst, GM of Jungo Connectivity Software. “Jungo’s software connects STBs with common WiFi dongles and 3G USB modems, thereby enabling new and innovative TV use cases.”

Jungo will be located on stand 1.A71 at IBC 2010. To arrange an interview or to book a meeting with a Jungo executive please contact Daphna Weiss (contact details below).
