NETGEAR and ClearAccess Extend Integration Partnership to EuroDOCSIS & DOCSIS Cable Gateways


Remote management platform and cable gateway integration will be unveiled at the ANGA Cable Show

SAN JOSE, Calif. and VANCOUVER, Wash. - NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, and ClearAccess®, a leading supplier of managed broadband solutions, today announced they have completed integration of the ClearVision® Management and Applications Platform with NETGEAR's CG3000 family of DOCSIS 3.0 & EuroDOCSIS 3.0 cable gateways through a TR-069 and API integration.

The two companies will demonstrate this integration at the ANGA Cable Show, May 3-5 in Cologne, Germany.

By joining forces, NETGEAR and ClearAccess are positioned to help cable operators improve the setup and support of home networking through the combined strength of the ClearVision platform and the NETGEAR CG3000 family. Cable operators will have an opportunity to significantly reduce OPEX costs by enabling flow-through provisioning, instant customer support, and network diagnosis from their operations centers - all without truck rolls.

The partnership will also enable cable operators to deliver new revenue-generating services such as IP Video, home security and monitoring, storage backup, parental controls, whole-home bandwidth and quality of service (QoS) monitoring, and DLNA/UPNP media discovery services.

"We strive to lead in bringing technologies to market as soon as service providers are ready to deploy them," said Michael Clegg, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Service Provider Products at NETGEAR. "This partnership with ClearAccess comes at a time when cable operators in Europe and elsewhere are demanding tools to more efficiently manage their networks and to more quickly deploy advanced services."

"The collaboration with NETGEAR enables us to move forward together on key customer opportunities," said Ken Hood, Founder and Senior VP of Sales & Marketing at ClearAccess. "Service providers are now realizing they can deploy ClearAccess software across multiple devices, which accelerates their market footprint for new broadband applications while maintaining a consistent support experience."

NETGEAR and ClearAccess will demonstrate their network management integration at the ANGA Cable Show in Cologne, Germany, from May 3 to 5, in Hall 10.1, booth number R035.
