Pantacor Releases Solution, Joins Broadband Forum

Pantacor has released its “any device, any manufacturer” containerized app store and services management solution engineered for lightweight edge devices, from legacy to modern. To reinforce its commitment to align with – and contribute its field experience toward – the WT-492 software-based architecture for the app-enabled services gateway design principles standard, Pantacor has joined the Broadband Forum as a Principal Member.

Pantacor’s announcement comes in collaboration with industry and Broadband Forum member premise edge device and chipset manufacturers in response to operator demand to break down traditional hardware lifecycle maintenance and extensibility challenges to deliver a single solution, modern cloud-native remote management and app store capabilities to every device, a legacy to modern – regardless of the manufacturer.

We heard two things loud and clear from the service provider (CSP) community: one, give us a platform that delivers modern containerized management to every edge device, regardless its manufacturer, chipset, or generation – and two, give us an easily deployable, monetizable app store that developers will flock to and customers will love. We’re excited to formally partner with Broadband Forum and its member constituents to help drive the direction of the WT-492 specification and build on Broadband Forum’s revolutionary USP [TR-369] protocol and TR-069, while continuing to evolve Pantacor’s offerings in step with our partner community’s top priorities,” said Ricardo Mendoza, Pantacor co-founder and CEO.
