Customers of Texas Instruments' Bluetooth-enabled cable solutions now have a choice in operation systems. TI has added Jungo Software Technologies' Linux residential gateway software to TI's broadband cable modems.
The Linux-based gateway offers many services including home networking, VOIP, network management, virtual private network and security.
"Bluetooth is expected to be in 69 million appliances by 2005," said Eric Dewannain, general manager of TI's cable broadband communications business unit.
The two companies will demonstrate the technology at the Western Show in TI's booth #4218.
