FREMONT, Calif., June 1, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — TeamF1, Inc. (www.TeamF1.com), the leader in embedded networking and security software solutions for wired and wireless applications, today announced availability of several new features in its SecureF1rst CPE Gateway Solution (CGS) for service provider (SP) home gateways, as well as mobile apps that leverage the modularity of the device software to enable easy-to-use secure remote connectivity for home users.
TeamF1′s enhancements in SecureF1rst CGS are built on the modular approach adopted for its platform. The SecureF1rst platform is not only for third-party applications (such as native or OSGi applications on the router), but also for device software extensions on the gateway to be easily developed for meeting key feature requirements for a full spectrum of home gateways. The platform can easily accommodate new revenue-generating opportunities for service providers through addition of geography-specific or ISP-specific requirements, new value-added end-user subscription features, or by enabling different classes of SP or third-party services for Over-The-Top (OTT) applications with logical WANs.
Several key new features being announced on SecureF1rst CGS demonstrate this flexibility including support for VDSL and LTE carriers, multi-PPPoE support for the Japanese and Russian markets. Besides these, a Parental Control subscription feature with cloud-based filtering database, WAN-side VLANs with multi-instance DHCP client on each logical WAN, and mobile apps take advantage of security extensions on the gateway to make available LAN and HAN data remotely in a secure manner.
“We have always been recognized for our strengths in bringing business-class security to SMB, SOHO and home users. These new advancements in our service provider gateway software feature-set are a testament to our willingness to extend this investment in bringing to market the next-generation of managed residential gateways,” said Rohit Sukhija, Director of Marketing at TeamF1, Inc. “From supporting the latest wired and wireless broadband technologies, to leading the pack in terms of deep, certified IPv6 support in our gateways, TeamF1 is pushing the envelope in how triple and quad play services can be delivered to modern homes flexibly and securely.”
“The mobile apps that we have developed are only one example that shows how advanced connectivity and security can be made available to a wider audience when the proper frameworks in place on the device side for such flexibility,” added Prasanna Kondapaneni, Vice President of Application Development at TeamF1, Inc. “With users demanding ways to make ‘local’ data behind your broadband router available on 3G/4G mobile devices, be it home videos, pictures or home monitoring and automation services, our SecureF1rst modular platform with security built-into its DNA makes it easy for TeamF1 and third-parties using its APIs to develop such apps with no fuss.”
The new features are available for immediate licensing on SecureF1rst CGS directly from TeamF1 and two mobile apps F1leShare and F1rstLook are available on Apple devices for demonstration immediately, and are expected to be released in their OEM-branded forms on the Apple App Store and Android Marketplace later in the year.
