TECHNICOLOR: Celebrating 20 Years of Broadband Innovation

This year, Technicolor celebrates 20 years of innovation for its range of ACCESS modems & gateways.

Technicolor’s broadband story started back in 1998 with the A1000 high-speed modem under the Alcatel brand. Although the first trials of the A1000 started in mid-1996, high-speed modem production ramped up in 1998 after the company signed its first contract with the Joint Procurement Consortium, formed by Ameritech, BellSouth, Pacific Bell, and SBC Communications telecom operators in the United States.

The DMT-based ADSL system provided a maximum bitrate of 6 Mbps downstream and 500 Kbps upstream, far from the 10 Gigabit downstream and upstream speed that can be offered today.

Building on 20 years of design and field experience in broadband solutions, Technicolor has developed a strong customer and partner intimacy, expert knowledge in wireless technology, and delivered more than 250 million modems and gateways around the world.

Our technology approach has changed from a device-centric, closed ecosystem to an open ecosystem platform enabling a wide range of in-home services. The HERO program, launched by Technicolor at BBWF 2018, helps further accelerate operators’ access to innovative technologies and offerings.

If, as a Service Provider, you are looking for a broadband and video expert with a forward-thinking business model approach, Technicolor is your best partner to drive and support the evolution of home gateways.
