TerreStar Demonstrates First Satellite IMS VoIP Call

TerreStar Networks and Comneon, which develops protocol stack software for mobile communications, announced that the integrated satellite-terrestrial multi-mode handset designed by EB (Elektrobit Corporation) for TerreStar has successfully demonstrated VOIP connectivity using satellite simulation in a Comneon test lab.

TerreStar expects to be North America's first integrated satellite-terrestrial communications network to utilize an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) to deliver ubiquitous access and personalized applications and services over wireless devices, such as mobile phones and personal digital assistants (PDAs). The TerreStar handset uses the Comneon IMS Device Framework as a client solution for its next generation integrated mobile satellite and terrestrial communications network.

TerreStar is planning to launch its communications satellite in June 2009.

Comneon's portable IMS terminal framework, executable across a wide variety of operating systems and processor architectures, will allow TerreStar to provide users increased flexibility and ease of access to mobile applications -- across a large number of terminal types and diverse customer segments. Comneon is a subsidiary of Infineon.
