CES 2012: Motorola Mobility announces connected home innovations

Motorola Mobility will introduce the Connected Home
Gateway at CES 2012.

Key innovations from Motorola’s Home division including
Televation, DCX3600 video gateway, DreamGallery, SocialTV, and SecureMedia are
driving the evolution of television, making it easier for consumers to enjoy
and discover new programming, tap into social features, and access content on
multiple devices, both at home and on the go.


“We’re seeing more consumption of more media and
lifestyle services across more devices. This is an unprecedented opportunity
for service providers to differentiate by streamlining these converged
experiences. At CES, Motorola is showcasing a range of new products that are
paving the way for the next stage of the connected home,” said Dan
Moloney, president, Motorola Mobility.

Motorola Connected Home Gateway handles the complexity of
today’s home networks as well as the traditional obstacles of service
installation and maintenance. All consumers have to do is plug in the gateway,
and the unit automatically connects their home control devices to the home

Its powerful 1.2 GHz processor running Motorola’s open
4Home software platform supports and abstracts a host of standards and
protocols, hiding the complexity of multiple disparate devices on the home
network. It allows consumers to access their homes remotely, from a smartphone,
tablet or PC. Motorola’s on-board EDGE Service Assurance software lets service
providers deliver support, proactive quality assurance and service activation
in real-time, meaning faster, and more efficient customer service.
