TeliaSonera to roll out Motorola RSGu3502 gateway with new voice services
ORLANDO, Fla., March 27 // -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:
MOT) announced today, at CTIA Wireless 2007, the commercial launch of its
Residential Seamless Mobility Gateway -- the Motorola RSGu3502 -- supporting
Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) technology. Qualified and selected for
deployment by Danish mobile operator TeliaSonera, the Motorola RSGu3502 is the
first available UMA-enabled gateway for fixed-mobile voice convergence
For TeliaSonera's customers in Denmark, the UMA-based service will offer
lower-cost calls with better coverage and higher capacity in the home where
WLAN access is present. In addition, users will have a seamless mobile
experience when moving in and out of the home using a single device, single
number, contacts book, voicemail, and bill. This builds upon TeliaSonera and
Motorola's joint announcement announcing deployment of Motorola's standards-
compliant network infrastructure, system integration, and deployment services.
"Motorola has unparalleled expertise in broadband and telephony," says
Jesper Broeckner, President, Telia Denmark. "When we decided to commercially
deploy an UMA fixed mobile convergence solution, Motorola's gateways were the
easy choice for delivering voice services across both a wired and wireless
connection. We have been pleased to work with Motorola to deliver the worlds
first Wi-Fi-based UMA system."
The Motorola RSG Series gateways support both voice and data communication
and provide seamless call transitions between mobile and home Wi-Fi(R)
networks. With an RSG and a compatible dual-mode mobile handset, consumers can
maintain an uninterrupted connection as they move both within and beyond the
home. The RSGu3502 is equipped with two RJ-11 analog phone ports, which enable
mobile operators to deliver dial tone to the fixed line in the subscriber's
home over the broadband access network. The RSG Series also comes equipped
with a full-featured, 4-port router and integrated 802.11b/g Wi-Fi radio,
creating a robust and secure home data network. It offers advanced packet
routing and prioritization for Voice-over-IP (VoIP) services, ensuring
superior Quality of Service (QoS) for both voice and data traffic.
What also makes the Motorola RSGu3502 unique is that it has been
especially designed for Seamless Mobility. It uses 802.11i for security
including support for WPA2 and it uses 802.11e for Quality of Service and
advanced power saving technology for improved battery utilization."
"TeliaSonera is an innovation leader and clearly recognizes the advantage
of deploying fixed-line VoIP services via low-risk UMA technology," says Alan
Lefkof, corporate Vice President and General Manager, Motorola Broadband
Solutions Group. "By introducing IP-based voice offerings, TeliaSonera is
creating new revenue streams while at the same time providing customers with
more freedom and flexibility to choose the phone services that are right for
them. We look forward to working with TeliaSonera to deliver these new
services with our seamless mobility gateways."
Motorola's seamless mobility voice gateways support a variety of rich
CLASS features including caller ID, call waiting, three-way calling, and call
forwarding. The Motorola RSGu3502 is currently on display at CTIA Wireless
2007 in the Motorola stand 3163.
