New iGateway RGS Product Family Offers OEMs Complete Communications Software Platforms that Integrate Security, Wireless, and Voice
SANTA CLARA, Calif., August 23, 2004 — Intoto Inc., a leading provider of integrated security, wireless and voice software platforms to networking equipment manufacturers, today announced its new iGateway RGS product family, the industry’s most integrated software platform solution for residential gateway (RG) and small office/home office (SOHO) networking systems. The RGS offerings within Intoto’s iGateway product family deliver comprehensive residential gateway solutions for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), combining key technologies such as security, wireless, and voice into complete software platforms that can quickly and easily be integrated with new or existing hardware designs.
“The residential market for networking appliances is crowded and fast-paced. OEMs respond to customer needs by integrating popular features such as security, voice, and wireless into their products,” said Charles Kolodgy, research director of security products at IDC. “In order to compete successfully, the vendors must be able to integrate those features quickly, and cost effectively. Intoto’s approach as a software developer enables OEMs to easily add these ‘must have’ features to existing platforms in record time and with considerable savings.”
As technologies such as security, Voice over IP (VoIP), and wireless become required features within the residential and SOHO gateway market, OEMs have recognized that their business model is now more about building a successful brand and quickly getting product to market than about developing proprietary technology. Whereas OEMs once bought “software stacks” or small low-level software building blocks, they are now looking to software Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) like Intoto for more flexible turnkey software solutions that allow them to maintain product leadership, reduce development costs, and speed their products’ time-to-market. With the new iGateway RGS product offering from Intoto, OEMs gain integrated, certified and interoperable software solutions that allow them to quickly differentiate their products in a highly competitive residential market. Intoto has developed its reputation for excellence over the past six years, with more than 100 design wins with top networking OEMs and over a million installations of its software worldwide. In fact, the majority of RG/SOHO networking OEMs have integrated Intoto software into their latest products.
“Our iGateway RGS product family and ParentalCQ software solution provide OEMs with proven, market-leading functionality in a platform that is turnkey, but also provides flexibility so that OEMs can provide their own value-add,” said Doug Makishima, vice president of marketing at Intoto. “Our extensive expertise in both security and embedded networking has allowed us to deliver the software platforms that power some of the most popular gateways on the market today. As a result, Intoto is in a unique position to design and manufacture complete software solutions for OEMs either looking to quickly enter the RGS market or further differentiate a current product offering.”

This comprehensive product family includes bridging, routing, WAN protocol support, wireless connectivity, stateful inspection firewall, wireless security, IPsec VPN, and VoIP.
Comprising three feature-rich platforms, these solutions meet the varying needs of networking equipment, including residential gateways, DSL/cable modems, wireless access points, security appliances, and integrated access devices (IADs).
iGateway RGS Pro – Complete software platform with basic networking protocols, wireless LAN support, ICSA certified stateful inspection firewall, and ICSA/VPNC-certified IPSec VPN

Additionally, the entire iGateway RGS architecture is agnostic to hardware platforms, operating systems, and accelerators, providing the flexibility needed for customization and differentiation. Intoto has done the heavy lifting to ensure its software is portable to any processor, hardware or operating system and delivers industry-leading performance. To accomplish this, Intoto has developed long-standing, close relationships with the industry’s leading hardware, processor and OS/RTOS providers, including Intel, Motorola, Broadcom, LSI, Cavium, Hifn, WindRiver, MontaVista and many more.
Complementary to the iGateway RGS product family, Intoto’s ParentalCQ™ software solution (announced July 20, 2004) provides advanced Web content control, filtering, and monitoring for home users. With the ParentalCQ software, parents benefit from comprehensive features that deliver the security and protection needed to keep children from accessing inappropriate or unwanted material on the Internet. For the OEM, ParentalCQ provides an incremental source of revenue and product differentiator without additional service management and development costs.
