Tilgin AB: tGem Chosen by Leading Swedish Cable Operator Com Hem

STOCKHOLM--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tilgin, a leading provider of solutions for multi-play and next-generation broadband access, has signed earlier this year an agreement with Com Hem for the delivery of Tilgin’s TR-069 Auto Configuration Server solution: tGem.

Com Hem is by far the largest Swedish Cable TV operator, and fast growing, with more than 1.7 million connected households and close to 600,000 broadband users. As part of their future strategic technologies plan Com Hem has chosen to invest in TR-069 as a base for the remote management of the connected home. 

With tGem, Tilgin provides Com Hem with a comprehensive remote management platform for any Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) that is compliant with Broadband Forum's TR-069 standard. In this deployment, Com Hem is using third-party CPE and benefited from Tilgin Professional Services team’s experience in integrating third-party devices smoothly into the platform.

Com Hem will use tGem to provision, monitor, and guarantee the service of their home devices. Firstly as part of their all new fiber project and progressively extending the use of tGem to other devices of the connected home.

“Delivering quality of experience to our subscribers is core for Com Hem’s business strategy. As Com Hem now expands into new deep fiber networks, it is central to be able to control the connected home and the broadband services delivered in order to be successful.” says Mr. Peter Eriksson, Manager OSS at Com Hem. “When we selected Tilgin and tGem we chose not only the right solution but also a partner able to help us deliver on our business plan. Tilgin has proven to give us quick and responsive services to meet our needs.”

“With over 10 years of experience of fully-featured device management platforms, tGem has been recognized and adopted by some of the major forward-looking operators. As operators want to extend their reach into the connected home, they turn towards solutions which can abstract the complexity of various technologies and let them focus on their core values: subscriber experience and satisfaction. The ability to manage the full life-cycle of subscribers, with any mix of devices – modern FTTx CPE, STB, or legacy SNMP devices – is the key to delivering a high-value solution.” says Mats Victorin, CEO Tilgin.
