Comtrend, a leading Broadband CPE manufacturer and solution provider to regional and rural Communications Service Providers (CSPs), today announced the availability of their first VDSL OpenSync™-certified gateway. The VR-3071 is the first certified product in a series of Comtrend devices that are planned for OpenSync integration.
Through Comtrend’s partnership with the personalized communications services pioneer Plume®, the VR-3071 can pre-ship with OpenSync which enables immediate access to Plume’s powerful cloud- and AI-driven SaaS Experience Platform featuring services for smart homes. Additionally, Service Providers with VR-3071 gateways that are already deployed can now easily add Plume services by simply upgrading the firmware.
Once connected to the Plume Cloud, OpenSync-enabled, Comtrend gateways can access such Services as HomePass™––a new bundle of smart home services for consumers featuring whole-home adaptive WiFi, advanced parental and access controls, cybersecurity and more. For service providers, Haystack™ provides a back-end data prediction and analytics suite that has a demonstrated track record of measured success across critical operational areas, including reduced truck rolls and churn, increased ARPU, and self-install savings to bring CSPs significant return-on-investment.
John DiFrenna, Comtrend’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, states “Comtrend remains committed to providing access to valuable solutions for every service provider, no matter their technology selection, market size, or location. Today, Comtrend is the only manufacturer to offer a VDSL OpenSyncready gateway.
