Netrake and Kineto Partner on UMA Wireless LAN Solutions

Netrake and Kineto Wireless completed interoperability testing to support currently installed UMA systems. Netrake's nCite Security Gateway and Kineto's IP-based UMA Network Controller (IP-UNC) are currently deployed in multiple commercial trials for UMA-based mobile/Wi-Fi convergence. This joint solution allows mobile operators to leverage their existing infrastructure and utilize UMA-based technology to cost effectively manage and accelerate fixed-to-mobile usage in home and enterprise environments.

Netrake's nCite Security Gateway encapsulates the voice and multimedia in secure, encrypted IP tunnels to ensure privacy for wireless usage over the public Internet. It does this utilizing IPSec encryption and provides the ability to establish hundreds of thousands of media and signaling security associations without adding network latency.

The core component of Kineto's mobile/Wi-Fi convergence solution is the Kineto IP-UNC, a carrier-class network element that integrates with a service provider's existing voice and packet switching systems, and uses standard interfaces to extend high-performance mobile services over IP access networks and WLANs. http://www.netrake.comhttp://www.kineto.com
