Netgem forms Connected Home division

French firm Netgem has formed a new Connected Home product division, headed up by Romain Waller, previously of Sagem Group and the Technicolor Group.

Romain’s core responsibilities at previous companies have included business development with global media and telecommunications operators to cover set-top boxes, modems and gateways, as well as IPTV service platforms and other connected technologies.

The company is also introducing a new product range with the launch of a compact platform, the N7700 Netbox, and of a mobile connectivity device, Wobe.

The N7700 series Netbox is the company’s latest powerful hybrid hardware platform, while the Wobe is a small, portable Wi-Fi router that can connect to many networks, including Wi-Fi Hotspots and 3G/3G+ networks.

Over recent months Netgem has  announced a number of new customers including Viaplay in Sweden, YouSee in Denmark, Netia in Poland, Globecast in the US (a subsidiary of France Télécom Orange) and TotalPlay in Mexico.
