DSP Group Extends its Collaboration with Technicolor to Bring Voice Enabled Solutions to Market

Applying its proven DECT/ULE expertise, DSP Group supports Voice enabled IoT

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, Inc. (DSPG), a leading global provider of integrative wireless chipset solutions for converging communications, today announces its collaboration with technology leader Technicolor to bring to market DECT-enabled gateways that will support innovative Internet of Things (IoT) use cases including both voice control applications and telephony services.

DSP Group’s technology addresses the key issue of integrating voice-enabled IoT home applications - recognized by Network Service Providers (NSPs) as a must-have feature to create a smarter connected home – through an accessory type of device rather than in the gateway to avoid deterioration of Wi-Fi performance and device location flexibility.

Leveraging Homeware, Technicolor’s open software platform, DSP Group has been working together with the technology leader to add small form factor battery operated DECT/ULE smart speakers to Technicolor’s line of smart home gateways. These two-way voice-enabled speaker accessories use natural language to control many of the smart home technologies installed in the customer’s home. By speaking commands to these secure devices, the new DSP Group-powered speakers can control home automation, security, entertainment and other services using voice. Moreover, the battery-operated devices, also support HD two-way voice.

“DSP Group is at the forefront of semiconductor innovation, the collaboration with them to bring the must-have voice- enabled services as a complement to our broadband gateway capabilities was a natural fit.” said Mercedes Pastor, President Global CPE Business Unit at Technicolor. “By combining our open software expertise with their advanced proven DECT/ULE technology, we can help the Service Providers to bring a smarter home experience to their users by deploying voice-enabled IoT home applications.”

“Technicolor is a great example of a technology company that’s always ahead of the curve and sees voice as a key enabler in driving innovation across IoT services” added Ofer Elyakim CEO of DSP Group. “Voice is a natural interface that should play a pivotal role in smart home applications and offer best in class customer experience. As consumer IoT plays a larger role in our daily lives, Technicolor is poised to offer a robust gateway solution and the accessories such as the smart speaker that can support features like entertainment, home automation and security in a new, integrated way.”

DSP Group & Technicolor will exhibit the voice-enabled solutions in CES. For more details contact info@dspg.com
