Sonus Networks and PCTEL Team on IMS-based FMC

Sonus Networks and PCTEL have completed interoperability testing between the customized PCTEL Roaming Client - Voice Enabled (VE) solution and the Sonus Broadband-Mobile Convergence (BMC) solution. The joint solution will enable the seamless handoff of mobile calls between Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) and traditional cellular networks and delivery of broadband-mobile converged services through dual mode handsets.

Sonus' BMC solution is IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)-ready and is based on standard protocols as defined by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). The solution includes the Sonus IMX Multimedia Application platform and third-party solutions such as those from PCTEL.

PCTEL's Roaming Client - VE delivers advanced voice and messaging capabilities, including seamless roaming and in-call handoff capabilities on dual mode devices. It enables users to seamlessly roam between and connect to the highest bandwidth, lowest cost source of connectivity at any location including enterprise networks, Wi-Fi Hot Spots and cellular networks.

PCTEL said its Roaming Client - VE has been deployed in over 25 trial sites worldwide and has been integrated with native cellular phone applications on several leading handset platforms including Windows Mobile.
