Arcadyan Technology to begin shipments of Google TV-based STBs in 1Q14 Irene Chen, Taipei; Adam Hwang, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 22 October 2013] --Taiwan-based networking/communications device maker Arcadyan Technology has obtained licensing for its STB (set-top boxes) based on the Google TV platform and has landed orders from telecom carriers in Europe with shipments to begin around the end of the first quarter of 2014, according to company president Lee Hong-yuh. In addition, Arcadyan has successfully developed IP STBs for broadband gateways, with telecom carriers target customers, Lee indicated. Broadband gateways with built-in IP STBs will be among the company's marketing focuses in 2014, Lee said. Arcadyan is showcasing products based on new-generation broadband networking technologies, such as VDSL Vectoring and VDSL Bonding, at the Broadband World Forum taking place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, during October 22-24. While Arcadyan's shipments of LTE terminal devices in 2013 are expected to drop on year, shipments will significantly rebound in 2014 mainly because many LTE networks in Europe will start commercial operations, Lee said. Arcadyan posted consolidated revenues of NT$3.837 billion (US$130 million) for the third quarter of 2013, decreasing 22%, and NT$12.896 billion for January-September, increasing 22% on year.
