Sigma Designs to Reduce Broadband Service Providers’ Support Costs via TR-069
LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwired – Jan 7, 2014) – CES — Sigma Designs® (NASDAQ: SIGM), a leading provider of System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions for home entertainment, connectivity and converging multimedia delivery, today announced it will demonstrate Sigma Designs’ TR-069 remote management and diagnostics with the company’s new G.hn CG5200 family of chipsets at the Sigma Designs suite 2990 in the Las Vegas Hotel at CES 2014 January 7-10. Based on Friendly Technologies’ TR-069 Access Control Server (ACS), this integrated solution will give Sigma’s broadband and triple-play service provider customers the means to deliver high-performance services with far fewer support calls and maintenance costs.
“While broadband speeds are critical to any service provider’s success, ensuring an outstanding customer experience is just as important,” said Gabi Hilevitz, Sigma Designs’ vice president and GM, home connectivity business unit. “With integrated support for TR-069 in its chipsets, Sigma is helping its service provider customers deliver to their subscribers the best possible user experience along with the highest performance offered by G.hn.”
Sigma’s CG5200 family of chipset supports an embedded IP Stack enabling TR-069 remote management, performance monitoring and network diagnostics while dismissing the need for an external processor. The SoC offers service providers with convenient remote troubleshoot and remote FW upgrade, resulting in easy customer installation, an overall reduction of service calls, returns, and maintenance costs.

- PHY rate up to 1 Gbps per medium (coax, phone, power)
