2Wire intros multi-service home networking server
2Wire has a new home server, aimed at xDSL service providers, that the company claims is the industry's first fully integrated, multi-service connectivity solution. The system incorporates an ADSL or VDSL modem, high-speed router, firewall, integrated VoIP and a flexible home networking configuration.
Other features of the 2Wire platform include automated storage, backup and universal access to all media types, from purchased video to photos, music and user-generated video. Content and services are accessible via a single Web portal, whether at home or away.
The server incorporates the 2Wire Shifter, a feature incorporated in an adapter described as the size of a deck of cards. The combination makes the 2Wire home server interoperable with a variety of networked devices, including set-top boxes (STBs). It enables Web-based remote access of any multimedia content, including live streaming TV, to any content-capable device, including computers and mobile phones.
