InnoPath Heads North – Leading Device Management Client Deployed by LG on Handsets at Canada’s Telus and Bell Mobility

Welcome back from the holiday weekend everybody… today InnoPath issued a release as evidence of both our continued momentum in the OMA-DM client space and the flexibility of our client in addressing differing operator requirements. MDM is at an inflection point, with operators now mandating client support on all new mid-range and high-end handsets. This availability, critical in the face of rising smartphone support costs coupled with pressures to reduce OPEX, is expected to jumpstart operator MDM deployments, thereby setting the stage for MDM-delivered customer care. In an environment where subscribers keep their phones for longer periods of time, the in-service maintainability offered by MDM is even more critical. Read more here.


And now for more details on how InnoPath reduces operator OPEX and creates a more positive user experience… (full press release follows, and can also be reached at this link).

InnoPath Software, the leader in Mobile Device Management (MDM), today announced that LG Electronics of Korea, one of the largest mobile phone makers in the world, has expanded its use of InnoPath device management for Canada’s Telus and Bell Mobility. New feature-rich phones with the InnoPath OMA-DM device management client include the Telus Keybo, as well as the Voyager offered by both Telus and Bell Mobility.


The deployment of the InnoPath client on these new handsets builds on LG’s existing North America Tier-1 relationship with InnoPath. A major supplier of leading-edge mobile phones worldwide, LG also counts Verizon Wireless, AT&T and Sprint as major North American operator partners. For LG, not only was industry-leading client technology critical, but InnoPath’s unique operational support capability was also key. Both wireless operators and handset makers like LG now consider MDM clients to be strategic to their business models, helping to reduce operational expenses while creating a more positive user experience.


LG, one of the most innovative handset vendors, continues to gain global market share based on handset design, feature set, usability, and reliability. The company is also the first major device manufacturer to embrace InnoPath’s breakthrough Port-to-Production (P2P) offering. This program addresses device maker goals of accelerated time-to-market for new handsets, management of costs and the uptake of new high ARPU handsets with maximum customer satisfaction. It includes engineering assistance as well as lab and server resources from initial client porting through testing, and onto final acceptance by the wireless operator.


MDM enables the operator’s care organization to provide better service with reduced expenses despite increasing device and service complexity. InnoPath is unique in delivering a device management solution, which while fully standards compliant, is also highly flexible, extensible and quickly implemented. The ROI for MDM-enabled customer care has been illustrated in a recent study by the analyst firm Stratecast which places the annual global operator exposure at over $25 billion, billions of which may be saved through MDM.

RAD Unveils New Carrier-Class, Wireless Multiplexer for “Data Hungry” Applications

Airmux-400 Supports 50 Mbps Full Duplex Throughput of TDM and Ethernet over License-Free Bands


MAHWAH, New Jersey, December 2, 2008: RAD Data Communications has unveiled its new Airmux-400 broadband wireless multiplexer, which delivers robust carrier-class, high capacity, extended range voice and data for both today’s and tomorrow’s networks.


The Airmux-400 is a full-duplex, 50-Mbps capacity cost-effective multi point‑to‑point broadband wireless transmission device. It will transport both legacy TDM and next generation Ethernet services over license-free 2.3 to 2.5 GHz and 4.9 to 5.9 GHz bands.


“The Airmux-400 is designed to connect ‘data hungry applications’ such as cellular or WiMAX base stations to controllers, meeting the requirements of backhauling applications by transporting Ethernet traffic for maintenance and control,” explains Toby Korall, Senior Product Line Manager at RAD Data Communications.


“In addition, Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) can use the Airmux-400 to backhaul their traffic from the point of presence (POP) to the network operation center to achieve higher capacity and can offer bundled connectivity. The Airmux-400 also provides broadband Ethernet and leased line services to large enterprises and is ideal for networks spanning multiple sites that require transparent LAN connectivity across their campuses.”


RAD’s Airmux multiplexers consist of an outdoor unit and an indoor unit with redundant DC power supplies. The outdoor unit is suitable for mast or wall installation. An optional external antenna guarantees a transmission range of up to 120 kilometers.


Hub Site Synchronization (HSS) ensures simultaneous, multi point-to-point data transmission for all collocated radios by eliminating the interference that otherwise occurs when different outdoor units transmit and receive from the same site. HSS, which supports up to 16 collocated units, enables a complex radio environment of mixed services.


Built on advanced MIMO and OFDM technologies, the Airmux-400 ensures high robustness of the air interface even under interference and harsh conditions. Data transmitted over the air interface is encrypted using Advanced Encryption System (AES) with a 128-bit encryption key.


The device adaptively changes the modulation according to air conditions, targeting maximum rate while maintaining link stability. The rate drops temporarily after encountering interference, then automatically returns to the highest possible rate. When the link quality is out of limits, the Airmux-400 automatically searches for a clear channel within a pre-selected list of frequencies.


Because the Airmux-400 operates on license-exempt frequencies, it can be deployed in record time, eliminating the costs and delays involved in leasing lines or trenching fiber.
