Broadband: HGI says welcome to Sky

 Leading global organisation representing service providers and manufacturers for the broadband home, under the aegis of HGI, has expressed delight over being joined by Sky.

ITRealms notes that HGI’s members enable advanced in-home services through the specification of service provider requirements and technical solutions for the Home Gateway and related infrastructure.

Sky is one of the biggest investors in content in the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland and has committed to providing direct-to-home entertainment and broadband services, which aligns perfectly with HGI’s mission.

ITRealms recalls that Sky reaches more than forty per cent of homes in the UK with its range of services. It joins other industry leaders in the telecom sector already contributing to HGI, including founding members Belgacom, BT, Deutsche Telekom, NTT, Orange France Telecom, Telecom Italia and TeliaSonera.

“Sky is committed to providing the best broadband experience to each and every one of our customers, and HGI’s work on hardware, software, and test requirements complements this goal,” says Daniel Fox, Research Manager at Sky, stressing that  by becoming a member of HGI allows the company to both benefit from and contribute to the standards-setting that is underway.

For the Chief Technology Officer of HGI, Duncan Bees, the group is delighted to welcome Sky, a leading innovator in delivering satellite and broadband services.

“We look forward to Sky’s contributions to HGI’s specifications in a variety of important and timely areas such as smart home services and media gateway requirements,” Bees said.

This news follows the recent announcement by HGI that it has published an updated specification for improving Quality of Service (QoS) with the Home Gateway.

HGI will soon be hosting an open forum to present the latest smart-home developments and demonstrating the real-world practical applications of the significant work in this field at Telecom Italia Labs Auditorium in Torino, Italy on Tuesday, March 19.
