Pantacor announces ‘any device, any manufacturer’ containerised app store as it joins Broadband Forum


Pantacor has launched what it describes as an industry-first 'any device, any manufacturer’ containerised app store and services management solution specifically engineered for lightweight edge devices, from legacy to modern.

To reinforce its commitment to align with – and actively contribute its extensive field experience toward – the forthcoming WT-492 Software-Based Architecture for the App-Enabled Services Gateway Design Principles standard, Pantacor has joined Broadband Forum as Principal Member.

Pantacor’s announcement comes in collaboration with industry and Broadband Forum member premise edge device and chipset manufacturers in response to operator demand to break down traditional hardware lifecycle maintenance and extensibility challenges to deliver single solution, modern cloud-native remote management and app store capabilities to every device, legacy to modern – regardless of the manufacturer.

“We heard two things loud and clear from the service provider (CSP) community: one, give us a platform that delivers modern containerised management to every edge device, regardless its manufacturer, chipset, or generation – and two, give us an easily deployable, monetisable app store that developers will flock to and customers will love. 

“We’re excited to formally partner with Broadband Forum and its member constituents to help drive the direction of the WT-492 specification and build on Broadband Forum’s revolutionary USP [TR-369] protocol and TR-069, while continuing to evolve Pantacor’s offerings in step with our partner community’s top priorities,” said Ricardo Mendoza, Pantacor Co-Founder and CEO.

“We are delighted to welcome Pantacor as a Principal Member at Broadband Forum and we look forward to their contributions in our Broadband User Services (BUS) Work Area,” said Craig Thomas, Vice President Strategic Marketing and Business Development at Broadband Forum. 

“By collaborating with other technology vendors and service and app provider members in the BUS Work Area, it will ensure that Pantacor can implement its innovative solutions to help accelerate the evolution of WT-492 and future app-enabled services standards.”
