New body to promote fixed-mobile convergence

By
MobileIGNITE, an industry organisation, founded by BridgePort Networks in January of 2005 to promote the adoption of fixed mobile convergence technologies, has become an independent body.

The organization says its new structure will enable it "to accelerate FMC by promoting standards based end-to-end interoperable solutions that improve the quality, coverage, flexibility and cost of mobile voice and data services and the mobility of IP communications services."

MobileIGNITE (Mobile Integrated Go-To-Market Network IP Telephony Experience) is now an independent multilateral industry association based on a shared Memorandum of Understanding and committed to FMC solutions that build on standards such as CDMA, GSM, UMTS, SIP, IMS, and 802.11/16.

Its present members are: 724 Solutions, Apertio, Boingo Wireless, BridgePort Networks, Centile, CoreMobility, Kyocera Wireless, Net2Phone, PCTEL, QualPhone, Reef Point Systems, SIPquest, Tekelec, VeriSign, Vivox, and WorldCell. Affiliates include: Acme Packet, Aruba, AudioCodes, Commoca, CounterPath Solutions, IBM, Sonim Technologies, Sylantro and TapRoot Systems.

It has set up an interoperability group that has identified its first three key initiatives:
    - IP centrex (SIP) to mobile network (SS7 and IMS) inter-working;
    -     IMS based VoIP over Wi-Fi to circuit switched cellular voice call handover network to handset interoperability based on emerging Voice Call Continuity standards in 3GPP and 3GPP2;
    -     Mobile / SIP-based messaging and presence inter-working.

The interoperability group will "work to define common use cases, interoperability test cases and requirements from the baseline open standards on which the above FMC applications are based."

Interested industry participants are invited to join. https://www.mobileignite.org.
