COAX and Integra5 team up
Headend and networking products manufacturer Coax and Integra5, a developer of unified messaging, are blending their technologies to develop UniTVO, a broadband messaging application using Coax's programmable headend architecture.
"Our MISTICO headend router and Integra5's UniTVO content-aware gateway will operate with a variety of existing set-top boxes and will require no additional customer premises equipment," said Jeffrey Fry, Coax's chief business officer.
The companies hope that their messaging product will do for personal communication between friends and family what e-mail has done for business communications.
Check out both companies at the Texas Cable & Telecommunications Association (TCTA) Convention in San Antonio, beginning February 25.
