SAN FRANCISCO -- SOMA Networks, Inc., a leading provider of last-mile broadband wireless access technology delivering multi-megabit broadband access and superior voice services, today announced commercial availability of the SOMAportÔ 300 wireless broadband gateway device in the Asia Pacific region. Featuring fully integrated voice, multi-megabit broadband access, and future WiFi capabilities, the SOMAport 300 is the industry’s first self-provisioning broadband wireless access device that can deliver voice and advanced services over broadband wireless technology in one compact and elegantly designed gateway product. JARING, Malaysia’s leading unified communications service provider, is using the SOMAport 300 to power its new wireless broadband system. Malaysia is the first Asian country to enjoy the benefits of the new SOMAport 300.

The SOMAport 300 has been successfully tested by several leading service providers in North America, Asia, the Pacific, Europe, and the Caribbean which have deployed SOMA Networks’ solution using a variety of licensed frequency bands including 1.9 GHz, 2.3 GHz, and 2.6 GHz. Carriers were most impressed with the true non-line of sight (NLOS) and self-provisioning capabilities of the wireless broadband gateway platform, particularly for voice services that can be notoriously difficult to provision. The intelligent device enables service providers to offer tiered broadband speeds and telephone service options, without the need for technician visits, special wiring, or externally mounted antenna.

“The SOMAport 300 represents a one-stop solution for our customers to quickly connect to voice and broadband data services,” said Dr. Mohamed Bin Awang Lah, chief executive officer of JARING. “It will allow JARING to help achieve Malaysia’s objective of increasing voice and broadband data penetration and become one of Asia’s leading telecommunication markets.”
