Service Gateways and the Connected Home

Actiontec announced the release of another free whitepaper, “The Service Gateway… The Future of Connected Home Applications.” With energy management and home automation applications becoming more and more prevalent, broadband providers need to differentiate their offerings to stand out in an increasingly crowded marketplace.

Service gateways are also robust enough to handle any future application uses, so that consumers need not worry about outgrowing their device.
