Swisscom and SoftAtHome have announced that Swisscom's Internet-Box has won this year's GTB Innovation Award for "Fixed network infrastructure innovation".

Swisscom was the first telecom operator to propose Fiber-to-the-home benefits and ultra high speed to customers. The Swisscom Internet-Box offers its users speeds up to 1Gbps as well as new features. Its core is powered by SoftAtHome; this Gateway delivers a number of functions that change the way customers use their broadband connection.

SoftAtHome's software modular architecture and associated SDK, allow third parties to add application and other features, thus making the device future-proof. For instance, applications developed on the Internet-Box include SpeedTest, to measure WAN and LAN network speeds, or a secure NAS mediacenter.

In order to be ready for Home Automation services, the Swisscom Internet-Box offers DECT-ULE support.

The Internet-Box is a collaboration between Swisscom; Vestiacom, the applications developer; Askey/Siligence, the hardware manufacturer and SoftAtHome, the software developer, vendor and integrator.

The GTB Innovation Awards celebrate excellence in telecom innovation around the globe. This year's event took place on Wednesday 13 May at the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel, Piccadilly, London.
