Jungo solution brings Wi-Fi/3G capabilities to legacy set-top boxes

We know that operators are loathe to swap out large quantities of legacy boxes, even for the promise of new and fancy next-generation features like home networking and interactive TV. It's why EBIF is trumping tru2way in the cable world. Now, Jungo (NDS) has introduced a solution to bringing Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity to existing set-top boxes.

It's a USB connectivity software solution that connects a standard STB to any home or wireless network via USB. Jungo indicates that this solution will extend the active life of the STB by enabling it to support new, ARPU-generating services. These include Video on Demand (VOD), video streaming, broadcast-Internet convergence and interactive services that require a return path.
