Thomson is demonstrating its broadband home networking line, including four new wireless products, during this week’s CeBIT show in Hannover, Germany.

Today’s announcements ranged from wireless routers and gateways to enhance data communications and an Ethernet access point that can be used to transform any wired residential gateway into a wireless platform, to a new gateway for wireless VoIP applications as well as a new compact HD PVR (personal video recorder).

“We know that broadband operators have to offer exciting and unique functionality to win subscribers, and to continue to innovate to retain them,” said Bruno Fabre, executive vice president, sales and marketing of the systems division at Thomson. “Well integrated triple play services are critical for minimizing churn, and our broad and innovative platforms help do that. The new platforms we are launching this week provide fast wireless connections in the home thanks to 802.11n, and they bundle integrated functionality with the prospect of future upgrades via remote management functionality.”
