San Jose, Calif., May 6, 2002 - Jungo Software Technologies, a leading provider of residential gateway software and technologies, today announced that it will deliver a CableHome compliant software suite, which enables cable modem and router manufacturers to bring to market a CableHome certified device. CableLabs' CableHome 1.0 introduces the specification that enables cable operators to provide consumers with a secure, high-quality home networking system that is easy to install, use, and maintain, and defines the minimum set of industry requirements for residential gateways. Jungo's OpenRG software platform will comply with the specifications that are intended to help accelerate the move to intelligent, self-configuring, easy-to-use cable devices for the connected home. The first production-ready reference design will be available during Q3, 2002.

"System OEMs that serve the cable MSO community are seeing significant interest in adding networking capabilities to the service provider's client devices, both to fulfill the growing demand for broadband sharing as well as to open up new revenue streams from connectivity based services," said Mike Wolf, Director of In-Stat/MDR's Enterprise and Residential Communications Research. "OpenRG for CableHome 1.0 is a way for system developers to build service gateways that are compliant with the emerging cable MSO specification, both in less time and at reduced cost."

"By offering a CableHome 1.0 compliant software suite, Jungo is ensuring that it continues to provide its customers with the most comprehensive and progressive development platform for broadband access devices available in the market," said Ofer Vilenski, CEO and President of Jungo. "Our customers will now be able to quickly develop interoperable, managed home networking products for the cable market, while reducing costs, development time and system complexity."

The CableLabs' CableHome project aims at creating architecture for vendors to develop interoperable products for the benefit of the cable operator and its subscribers. The specification is designed for the residential gateway device called the Home Access (HA) device, which acts as the single entry point into the home. CableHome 1.0 specification provides information about management and provisioning protocols, initialization and configuration processes, manageable parameters, QoS, security and Network Address Translation (NAT) for CableHome-compliant devices.
