MILPITAS, Calif. -- Kineto Wireless, Inc., the key innovator and leading supplier of Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) technology, announced today it has completed testing with Cisco Systems, Inc., of Cisco's Mobile Services Security Gateway (SeGW) for use with the Kineto IP-based UMA Network Controller (IP-UNC). The SeGW is a critical element of any UNC solution, and completion of this testing gives operators around the world the option to select the Cisco Mobile Services SeGW to support the growing number of UMA network deployments.

"As the recent UMA service announcements from major operators indicate, the demand for UMA-based solutions is growing rapidly as the ecosystem has matured," said Kyle Forster, product manager for Cisco's UMA security products. "The completion of testing with Kineto to ensure the gateway is ready for commercial deployments is a key step in addressing this market demand."

The Cisco SeGW, a new product in Cisco's Service Exchange Framework, meets the requirements of the UMA specification for mobile/Wi-Fi convergence as defined within the 3GPP. With versions on both the 7301 and the 7600 series platforms, the Cisco SeGW is built on some of the world's most widely deployed high-end edge routers and mature IOS operating systems. It provides the required high-performance IPSec features, along with the routing, switching, load balancing, and threat defense capacity necessary for commercial UMA service. The modular design allows for a "threat defense in depth" approach to security and a flexible pay-as-you-grow approach to capacity.

"In continuing our collaboration with Cisco on UMA solutions, it is exciting to pass yet another milestone that will help advance UMA technology and services," said Tom Elam, Kineto's vice president of product management. "Cisco's UMA security solution provides cutting-edge features above and beyond the UMA specification to provide secure and reliable UMA service access."
