Pantacor Joins Broadband Forum as Lead Member, Launches First Any-Device, Any-Manufacturer Containerized App Store and Management Platform for Legacy and Modern Lightweight Edge Devices

  • Deploy a simple management and application services solution for every smart edge gateway device, from legacy to modern
  • Experience cloud-native, open source, containerized management and monetizable app store
  • The best applications and value-added services sought by today’s end customers

LONDON, ENGLAND – December 13, 2022 – Pantacor today announced its first “any device, any manufacturer” containerized app store and service management solution specifically designed for lightweight edge devices, from legacy to modern. To reinforce its commitment to align with the upcoming WT-492 software-based architecture for the App-Enabled Services Gateway Design Principles standard and actively contribute its extensive field experience, Pantacor has joined the Broadband Forum as a core member.

Pantacor’s announcement comes in collaboration with industry and chipset and edge premise device manufacturers who are members of the Broadband Forum in response to calls from operators to break down traditional extensibility and hardware lifecycle maintenance challenges to provide a single solution, a modern cloud-native remote management and app store capabilities for every device, from legacy to modern, regardless of manufacturer.

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

« We are delighted to welcome Pantacor as a core member of the Broadband Forum and look forward to their input into our Broadband User Services (BUS) workspace, » said Craig Thomas, vice president of strategic marketing and business development at Broadband Forum. “By collaborating with other technology vendors and app and service provider members in the BUS workspace, Pantacor will ensure that Pantacor can implement its innovative solutions to help accelerate the evolution of WT-492 and future enabled services standards for apps ».
