The Internet Box operates with two firmware packages. The one deals with conventional router functions (connecting to the Internet, WLAN, IP and telephony); the other deals with the built-in applications processor. On this additional processor Swisscom can offer more useful features without impairing the internet functionality of the Internet Box. Swisscom currently offers the central memory feature on this applications processor. Further features can be added simply through firmware updating.
