Anaheim, CA – January 10, 2012 - Zyxel Communications Inc., a leading provider of secure broadband, security networking connectivity and routing products, announced today several of its broadband CPEs (customer premises equipment) are compatible with Hitachi’s SuperJTM OSGi-compliant application platform. A result of joint efforts between the companies, the new interoperability offers service providers a ready solution that will simplify and speed up deployment of on-demand services.

Subscribers increasingly enjoy higher-bandwidth broadband connections at home. This expanded capacity presents opportunities for service providers to deliver premium services, including home and energy monitoring, media sharing, data backup and storage, to generate additional revenue opportunities and enhance customer loyalty. In addition, these services can be delivered to subscribers via the cloud as downloadable apps, making them easier to implement quickly and cheaply.

The OSGi application platform offers service providers an efficient mechanism for deploying service-driven apps quickly and on-demand. The Hitachi SuperJ Applications Environment is an OSGi-compliant server engine that supports a variety of applications via compatible CPE devices, such as ZyXEL broadband gateways and media adapters. The Java-based SuperJ environment offers maximum portability for applications and also shortens the learning curve for application developers. In addition, software components can be installed, updated or removed on the fly, without disrupting the operation of pre-installed home gateways or creating the need to replace them.

“We are proud to announce interoperability between Zyxel broadband gateways and the Hitachi SuperJ Applications Environment,” said Brian Feng, senior vice president at Zyxel. “We believe our joint efforts will greatly reduce operators’ deployment time for new on-demand, cloud-based services.”  

Zyxel broadband gateways that are compatible with Hitachi SuperJ Environment include: the all-in-one bonded VDSL2, wireless-n gateway with universal DSL capability (P873HNUP); VSG series of VDSL2 wireless-n gateways (VSG1435 / VSG1432); and the wireless-n ADSL2+ gateway (P660HN).

“Hitachi welcomes Zyxel to the SuperJ ecosystem,” said David Foote, chief technology officer for Hitachi. “Our joint pioneering efforts to expand the applications ecosystem using the SuperJ platform and OSGi will immensely benefit service providers in speeding up the development of innovative services that subscribers want and are willing to pay for.”
