San Ramon, CA -- a la Mobile, Inc., (www.a-la-mobile.com) the premier Linux systems platform company for mobile phones, today announced the immediate availability of a complete Voice over IP (VOIP) Linux system stack for WiFi/GSM dual-mode phones. Designed for market entry readiness, it is the first of the company's new Made-Ready Series(TM) of Linux software offerings tuned for function-centric mobile phones.
"The idea of a series of Made-Ready Linux solutions is a la Mobile's direct response to a number of requests from handset vendors interested in completely integrated Linux system stacks that are particularly well-tuned for a specific function, and that are ready to go to market with little or no modifications," said Pauline Lo Alker, President and CEO at a la Mobile, Inc. "With the increasing market interests in Dual-mode phones tuned for VoIP, it is a 'no brainer' for us to offer it as the first of our Made-Ready Series of function-centric Linux solutions."
Driven by today's mobile workforce combined with increasing demand for 'non stop' high-speed access, WiFi hot spots are springing up everywhere: in hotels, airports, coffee shops and throughout entire metropolitan cities. A recent report by Juniper Research, a market research firm, predicts that the worldwide VoWiFi (Voice-over-WiFi) handsets will grow to almost US $70 billion by 2012 with the vast majority being dual-mode handsets. According to the report authored by Basharat Hamid Ashai, research analyst at Juniper Research, the handset market is moving to a stage where no one wants to carry two or three devices in their pocket, so the ability to have a single device for all calls is a compelling proposition.
Based on the company's Convergent Linux System Platform (CLP), a la Mobile's VoIP Made-Ready Linux Solution is a pre-integrated full-featured software stack that supports both WiFi and GSM with an integrated SIP-based VoIP client, a browser, Java, Adobe Flash and a core suite of applications such as phonetop, media, messaging and email.
"The idea is to enable handset customers to bring dual-mode phones to market readily with no delays, while also giving them the peace-of-mind that the stack is completely integrated, tested, supported and maintained," Alker added. "In the upcoming months, we expect to introduce additional Made-Ready Linux solutions tuned for other function-centric mobile handsets."
a la Mobile's VoIP Made-Ready Linux Solution for Dual-Mode phones is available for customers immediately.
