MUNICH -- Siemens Enterprise Communications today launched HiPath MobileConnect, an enterprise FMC solution that seamlessly unifies fixed enterprise VoIP, VoWLAN and cellular networks, which will also be one of Siemens’ highlights at CeBIT in Hannover, presented at booth D 37 in hall 13. Business results include increase in productivity and responsiveness while driving mobile call communications costs down. MobileConnect is the only end-to-end solution that delivers one number and one mailbox with a seamless handover between wireless (WiFi) and cellular networks delivered on a single device.

MobileConnect consists of two elements; the first is an appliance that resides between the enterprise IP communications server and WLAN. Whether on the corporate or public network, the dual mode mobile devices are continuously monitored and call sessions are managed by the appliance. Call costs are then optimised by identifying and selecting the best available network to ensure the mobile call costs are at a minimum. MobileConnect also consists of a software client that resides in the dual mode handset and works with the MobileConnect device to enable the seamless handover between the corporate wireless LAN network and the cellular exchange.

Based on open standards, HiPath MobileConnect can interoperate with virtually any SIP-supported IP Telephony, WLAN and dual-mode handset.Siemens has certified HiPath MobileConnect with the Siemens HiPath 8000 communications server, the Siemens HiPath Wireless platform and market leading dual-mode handsets. Ongoing testing with other platforms and devices is underway.

“With one number, one device and the seamless cellular/WiFi handover HiPath MobileConnect can reduce call costs and keep today’s increasingly mobile workforce in touch with each other and with their customers,” said Marcus Birkl, Head of Sales HiPath Wireless at Siemens Enterprise Communications.“At the same time, businesses gain a greater control over a single unified communications infrastructure.”
