Integration Between ERF Wireless And Latens Systems Offers Secure And Flexible FTTH Systems For International Customers

League City, TX - ERF Wireless, a provider of enterprise-class wireless and broadband products and services, and Latens Systems, the leading provider of software security solutions for Pay-TV & IPTV, recently announced a working collaboration that will see the two companies cooperate closely to provide advanced, secure fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) systems for projects in the international marketplace.

ERF Wireless will offer Latens' Conditional Access solutions content and revenue protection as part of the systems provided its FTTH clients, ensuring that they receive highly secure and flexible, yet cost-effective, FTTH systems.

"We are pleased to have formed this working association with Latens. As a company that constantly seeks to improve the high standards of technology that we provide to our customers, ERF Wireless continually looks to work alongside and cooperate with market leaders and other forward-thinking companies. Latens is one such company," said Dr. H. Dean Cubley, CEO of ERF Wireless. "We are confident that, by drawing on the experience and expertise that Latens possesses, we can supply our clients in the international marketplace with the highest standards possible. The design and development of secure FTTH systems is an important step forward for ERF Wireless, and complements our own CryptoVue product that provides secure connectivity for more general wired and wireless data networks. We are pleased that Latens will be part of this expanded capability."

Latens' smartcard-less conditional access (CA) solutions offer a large amount of flexibility to meet a FTTH operator's specific business needs. The operator may choose to deploy only the relevant CA components, as Latens' solution is fully upgradeable in the future without causing disruption to existing services. This feature assures ERF Wireless' FTTH customers that the company is able to provide a secure solution that meets their budget requirements, yet can be developed and upgraded as they add to their service offering in the future.

"The relationship between ERF Wireless and Latens is further evidence of the confidence that major systems integrators have in our CA protection technology. ERF Wireless is a fast growing company, constantly looking to further its business presence, both in North America and internationally," said Dean Kashlan, GM and VP, Latens Americas. "We are pleased to be working alongside ERF Wireless to enable the company to provide the best possible FTTH CA technology systems to its International clients."
