Jungo adds fast channel switching to OpenRG residential gateway software
Jungo has announced that its OpenRG residential gateway software now supports a fast channel switching feature.
This solution enables service providers to enhance the consumer IPTV experience by improving the channel-switching performance of broadband access equipment.
A channel switching delay of less than two seconds is considered acceptable to users. Jungo’s new technology removes channel switching overheads by employing a variety of tactics, including: an enhancement of the regular IGMP Leave and Fast-Leave operations, known as Aggressive Leave; the monitoring of available resources, such as bandwidth and virtual circuits (VCs); and intelligent bandwidth usage assumptions. The new solution from Jungo can be used on any off-the-shelf set-top box.
OpenRG, Jungo’s complete residential gateway solution, helps service providers to introduce and grow triple-play services.
