resounding validation of the relevance of our technology and our multi-device
approach, deployed worldwide,” said Erik Piehl, president and

service. The technology allows interactive content requiring low latency, such
as high-end video games and full-length DVD films, to be distributed to a wide
range of devices.

commercialized on SFR’s Neufbox one year ago. One million households have
already benefited from the service, recently made available for Mac and PC and
is delighted to support G-Cluster since its launch. We are convinced the
cloud-based solutions are in phase with the new modes of consumption. Their
successes confirm the managed networks superiority,” said Pierre-Emmanuel
