The smart home is a challenge. While the industry has been talking about it since the turn of the century, for the majority it’s still not a reality. A key issue is the plethora of proprietary solutions, all competing for physical real estate in the home. One possibility is evolving the home gateway into a central platform that aggregates a variety of smart home solutions into a compact and efficient form-factor. The question is how to make smart the home gateway a flexible, cost effective and secure environment?
A key tool to address these issues is the use of the virtualized environments. Virtualization is a topic that has been batted around the processor industry for many years, and while many understand the concept in theory, there are many who don’t appreciate the impact it could have on business models.
However, with a clear understanding of its potential Imagination Technologies brought support for hardware acceleration of virtualized environments to its MIPS CPUs back in 2014; the first company to do so for embedded CPUs.
To learn more about this subject make sure you register now for the upcoming webinar, ‘Smart architectures for smart home gateways: new challenges, new thinking’.
In this webinar, Simon Forrest, Director of Segment Marketing for Imagination Technologies, will address the challenges facing operators and service providers looking to provide smart home services on home gateways. He’ll also explain the significance of hardware virtualization and detail how the deployment of new architectures promises to unlock the potential of new business models and fresh revenue streams.
Remember you can sign up online, and if you can’t make it on the day the webinar will be available to stream on-demand via the website.
