PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 2, 2016) - ROC-Connect, the leading smart home services platform, announces its partnership with DSP Group, a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications. As part of the partnership, ROC-Connect now offers its channel partners Ultra Low Energy (ULE) chipsets in its smart home hubs to support the growing range of ULE powered smart home devices.
