Uncentric Partners With AP Engines and Ellacoya for Home Networking Services
Ucentric Systems is partnering with AP Engines and Ellacoya Networks to enable broadband service providers (BSPs) to tap into new revenue streams from home networking services.
Through the alliances with AP Engines and Ellacoya Networks, Ucentric Systems offers its partner BSPs the opportunity to tap into a potential $2.2 billion home networking market, according to Paul Kagan Associates' figures for the home networking market through 2005.
"Strategic partnerships lower the barriers to entry for broadband service providers and original equipment manufacturers, and, ultimately, speed the growth of the industry," says Kathie Hackler, VP of the Gartner Group.
By offering the benefits of integrating with legacy infrastructure and accurately tracking subscriber usage of offerings, BSPs are now well positioned to deploy home networking services such as digital jukeboxes, unified messaging and centralized personal video recording, according to Ucentric.
