HelloSoft Launches FMC Client for Nokia E-Series Devices

By Anshu Shrivastava April 10, 2008
HelloSoft, a provider of VoIP/IMS/VCC technologies for wireline and wireless devices, has launched HelloMobileCommunicator-FMC for Nokia’s E-Series devices.
HelloMobileCommunicator-FMC is a standards-based complete solution enabling mass-market deployment of power-efficient fully featured handsets. HelloSoft’s comprehensive SIP-based VoIP technology forms the core component of the product.
Formerly called Series 60 User Interface, this S60 Platform is a software solution for mobile phones that uses Symbian OS, and is developed primarily by Nokia and licensed by that company to other manufacturers.
HelloSoft said it has been “diligently working on the S60 platform to bring Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) to Next Generation Networks (NGN).”
Company officials explained that this 3GPP compliant product is equipped with Voice Call Continuity (VCC) feature offering seamless handoff between any access networks, such as Wi-Fi, WiMAX, WCDMA, EVDO, HSDPA/HSUPA.
Officials pointed out that the product provides a unified GUI to support voice, chat, messaging, phone book, and contact applications.
"We are excited to be able to provide our IMS/VCC technologies for Nokia E-Series devices and other popular S60 platform based mobile devices," said Ron Victor, vice president and general manager for business development and marketing at HelloSoft.
He also said in a press statement that adding the Nokia S60 platform to his company’s portfolio of supported platforms for FMC enables their service provider and enterprise customers to broaden the number of handset choices available for FMC applications.
HelloSoft, Victor said, has been conducting interoperability testing over the past year and continues to work with infrastructure partners to test any and all platforms with IMS/VCC client. Announced partners include Accuris Networks Aricent, Azaire Networks, NewStep, Personeta, Sonus, Networks and Tango Networks.
HelloSoft’s products also enable mobile device manufacturers to design and architect products that are power efficient and provide substantial cost benefits.
Victor stated that HelloSoft has a range of VoIP and wireless products to meet the price and performance needs of multiple high-volume markets, including multi-mode devices which enable OEMs, ODMs and semiconductor manufacturers to deliver VoIP enabled products with a shorter time to market.
In January, HelloSoft collaborated with Personeta that enable FMC to operate on a variety of dual-mode and multi-mode handset devices.
The two companies signed an agreement to collaborate on IMS/VCC initiatives to enable service providers to develop and deliver voice, data, image and multimedia applications.
