Personeta Adds Voice Call Continuity

Personeta announced the general availability of a software module for voice call continuity (VCC) applications.

The new "My VCC" module, which is part of the company's "Converged Life" converged communication suite for consumers, allows users to make and receive calls on both cellular and Wi-Fi networks using a dual-mode handset and supports handoffs between networks for calls in progress, without any service interruption or degradation. Following the 3GPP standard for VCC, My VCC uses SIP to communicate with dual-mode handsets and has been certified with a number of third-party clients.

Personeta said its software has been tested by several operators, both in Europe and North America, using a variety of switching and signaling infrastructures. Because of its unique call-anchoring functionality, My VCC is particularly well-suited for service providers without cellular plants such as Mobile Virtual Network Operators and Internet Service Providers.
