IPWireless, Huawei partner for development of IMB technology

Includes interoperability testing (IOT) and service provider trials

By CBR Staff Writer

IPWireless and Huawei have entered into a strategic alliance with respect to the production of each party’s Integrated Mobile Broadcast (IMB) technology.

The company said that this collaboration will include interoperability testing (IOT) and service provider trials. These interoperability tests will assure operators that they can confidently source IMB equipment from multiple vendors and assure handset manufacturers that their devices will be fully compatible with all IMB networks.

According to IPWireless, IMB is capable of streaming live video and broadcasting and storing popular content on the device for later consumption both resulting in significant offloading of data traffic from existing 3G networks.

The company said that IOT will ensure compatibility between Huawei IMB base stations and IPWireless chipsets. Both companies are also working together on several commercial and technical IMB pilots.

William Jones, chief executive officer of IPWireless, said: "For IMB to achieve its full potential it is critical that solutions based on the technology are brought to market as quickly and easily as possible.

"As a leader in this industry, we are dedicated to the development of the ecosystem so that operators and their hardware partners are able to confidently and swiftly deploy IMB solutions. We are delighted to be working with Huawei in ensuring that the huge potential for mobile broadcast is realised."
