DSP Group And SoftAtHome Expand Partnership To Address Smart Home Market

SAN JOSE, Calif. and PARIS, Oct. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group ® (Nasdaq:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, and SoftAtHome, a leading provider of home operating platforms that enable Service Providers and Operators to deliver convergent services for the Digital Home, announced today that the companies have jointly integrated Digital Enhanced Cordless Technology (DECT) Ultra Low Energy (ULE) home security, control and automation solutions. This new cooperation comes on the heels of the companies' previous successful partnership in delivering the first advanced home gateway featuring DECT CAT-iq 2.0 to a tier-1 Operator in Europe.

SoftAtHome delivers advanced software solutions for CPEs in different market segments. For telecom operators, SoftAtHome's gBox (gateway box) enables access and broadband services, while the ipBox (IP set-top box) enables OTT and managed services. SoftAtHome's oneBox offers combined services within a single device. Broadcasters can also benefit from the hBox, enabling hybrid Broadcast and OTT beyond-media services. These solutions exploit SoftAtHome's 4 C's concept, including Content, Communications, Commerce and Control.

DSP Group delivers semiconductor system solutions with software and reference designs (CMBS). Based on DSP Group's XceedR TM family of cutting edge DECT chipset solutions, the reference design enables fast time to market, and minimizes R&D effort while guaranteeing CAT-iq support. The solution is fully upgradable to DECT-ULE, and paves the way for evolution of the operator home gateway to the Smart Home. With a dedicated frequency band, DECT ULE's superior range and low cost of ownership is ideal for such home automation and control systems.

SoftAtHome and DSP Group have successfully partnered to create the first solution available for the emerging DECT ULE standard. Already showcased at HGI in Paris, the solution will be available for demonstration at SmartHome 2012 (Amsterdam October 9-11) in the DSP Group meeting room, and at Broadband World Forum (Amsterdam October 16-18) in SoftAtHome's booth (Hall 11, booth F3) and in the DSP Group meeting room.
