Azaire Demos Sharing

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and HELSINKI -- Azaire Networks Inc. and Movial demonstrated a live IMS-based Video Share service between a WiFi connected Windows XP laptop and a 3G mobile phone at the 3GSM World Congress Asia in Singapore. Azaire Networks’ IP Converged Network Platform (IP-CNP) and the Movial Connect PC 7.0 client showed true Fixed-Mobile Interworking between an I-WLAN access network and a 3G wireless network, demonstrating how users can securely access and share content over any network. It also showcased secure IP access to converged IMS core services and the improved user experience of a device connected via a wireless broadband access network, like WiFi.

The Video Share service allows users to share live video or stored content over an IP connection in real time, simultaneously with an ongoing circuit switched call, thus enhancing and enriching the end-user’s voice communication. Video Share is a one-to-one combinational service utilizing a 3GPP-compliant IMS core system and a 3GPP CSI-based solution. It is interoperable between different terminals (peer-to-peer), as well as between terminals and different IMS core systems.

Azaire Networks' core product, the IP Converged Network Platform, enables service providers to offer mobile broadband services through the creation of hybrid networks. Hybrid networks integrate wide area cellular and IP access networks (such as Wi-Fi and WiMAX), allowing operators to extend their 2.5G/3G footprints quickly and cost effectively. Service providers are able to offer new fixed-mobile convergence services like voice, data and multimedia that increase ARPU, while business users and consumers receive the broadband services they desire on the best available network.

"This demonstration, utilizing Azaire Networks’ IP-CNP and Movial’s Connect PC 7.0, brings to life the promise of accessing all services everywhere in a secure fashion,” said Dick van der Kwaak, Vice President of Azaire Networks’ EMEA Region. “Our IP Converged Network Platform enables carriers like Telia Sonera to provide subscribers with seamless and secure access to core IMS services over 3G -WiFi dual networks.”
