Pace launched its Helium unified gateway software for broadband network providers, enabling operators to manage their services through any gateway or next generation smartbox system, regardless of vendor, and providing advanced home networking services to the consumer in an operator-defined environment.
Helium, a new addition to Pace’s Elements platform, is hardware-agnostic software that allows operators to install, connect and manage multiple hardware types from a range of vendors. The software provides advanced home networking capabilities via gateways or smartboxes, allowing subscribers to connect a range of electronic equipment into the home network – from printers and digital photo frames to set-top boxes and laptop computers – without needing to replace their in-home devices.
Helium unified gateway software features a central control system, enabling operators to update and manage subscribers’ home networks remotely. Operators can install Helium onto gateways in the field, and upgrade software and firmware remotely, easing the introduction of modifications and additional services for subscribers.
