DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- DOVADO has added support for WCDMA/HSDPA PCMCIA modems from Huawei, Option and Novatel Wireless as addition to the present list of supported modems, those being from Flarion (Qualcomm), IPWireless and UTStarcom. The DOVADO Wireless Residential Gateway (WRG) can be firmware-upgraded over-the-air in order to capacitate newer modems as operators evolve their networks from one technology to the next, thus not requiring subscribers to acquire a newer gateway for each newer generation of technology that is introduced.

The WRG can be used as an all-in-one access device within a home, office or onboard a vessel/vehicle. Mobile operators would be able to bundle competitive voice and data packages as part of their service plan.

“As the boundaries between mobile, fixed and internet segments are thinning, the operators can combine the strengths of all three out of the WRG in order to broaden their current service offerings. For the subscriber, this means having all services out of one box, which is easy to setup and use.” says Erik Arthur, CEO of DOVADO.

The WRG connects to the mobile network via a slot-in PCMCIA modem, and can share the internet access to many users simultaneously as a WiFi/LAN router. Additional features such as telephony allow subscribers to use their existing regular analog telephone sets and fax machines to get the best out of next generation SIP telephony inherent in the mobile soft-switching infrastructures better known as IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).

With the assistance of the DOVADO Gateway Manager (DGM), all of the DOVADO gateways are operator-managed from a central location in order to simplify and shorten the installation process by operator subscribers.

“Having successfully demonstrated the WRG’s capabilities at the 3GSM event in Barcelona last month, we are happy to announce that we have received a tremendous interest from mobile operators worldwide for this product.”, adds Samir Madani, Director of Sales & Marketing at DOVADO.
