TORONTO -- Celestica, a global provider of innovative electronics manufacturing services (EMS), and U4EA Technologies, a leader in multi-service QoS and VoIP gateways, today announced a co-marketing and development effort to provide OEM building blocks for reliable VoIP for WiMAX. Through the collaboration, U4EA’s Multi-Service QoS (GoS™) will converge IP voice and data services software ported to Celestica’s WiMAX Gateway/CPE Solution Accelerator. The pair will demonstrate the U4EA QoS technology at WiMAX World Europe in Celestica’s Booth (#400).

Leveraging its expertise in design, engineering and manufacturing for the telecommunications sector, Celestica’s Solution Accelerators offer both an Intel and Freescale WiMAX Gateway/CPE. Both are non-productized, pre-engineered platform solutions that do not compete with original equipment manufacturers’ (OEMs’) intellectual property or market position. Based on existing Celestica designs, these two roadmapped Solution Accelerators provide excellent time-to-market and customization, in line with customer needs.

U4EA’s integrated gateway software makes converged IP voice and data services reliable and efficient. It incorporates GoS, an advanced, yet easy to configure QoS mechanism that ensures optimal priority, shaping and management of multiple priority traffic classes. GoS gives carrier-class service quality to voice and other real-time multimedia services over broadband connections, efficiently utilizing up to 90 per cent of the link with quality traffic. U4EA’s software is offered as a customizable OEM software package and service set -- as part of the joint Celestica and U4EA offering.

“Our joint focus is to provide customers with a flexible, cost-effective and customizable way to implement WiMAX technology into their products," said Mike McCaughey, Senior Vice-President and General Manager of Celestica’s Communications Group. “By leveraging U4EA’s industry leading software and QoS, we’re able to provide our customers with a superior Gateway/CPE Solution Accelerator that speeds time-to-market and provides the best landed cost for WiMAX Gateways.”
