Seattle, WA-based ADAPTIX Inc., a provider of OFDMA/TDD technology for mobile WiMAX/WiBro solutions, today announced it joined Sweden-based Interpeak, an Internet and security protocol solutions for embedded systems, to provider in order to offer wireless carriers a more complete broadband wireless mobility offering. As part of the new agreement, Interpeak will provide a WiMAX/WiBro-compliant network layer solution, including Mobile IPv4, dual IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stacks, and Interpeak Virtual Router capabilities, to integrate with the ADAPTIX WiMAX/WiBro link layer solution.
"This agreement with Interpeak brings together the best of our companies' capabilities to deliver an industry leading, complete broadband wireless package," said ADAPTIX’s CEO Vern Fotheringham. "While both companies can continue to focus on their respective core competencies, working together has enabled us to create an extremely compelling solution for carriers seeking to implement a mobile WiMAX/WiBro network."
The new agreement asks for forth companies to collaborate in the implementation of optimizations to Mobile IPv4 in the areas of fast handoff and packet loss mitigation. These optimizations are said to enable peak performance of applications that are sensitive to packet network issues, such as VoIP, real-time video and gaming.
The Interpeak solution utilized by ADAPTIX will also include a full dual stack IPv4/IPv6 implementation to facilitate carrier migration to Mobile IPv6. Additionally, the Interpeak Virtual Router capability will enable carriers to benefit from the Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) model in which multiple carriers have the ability to share the same physical network.
"As a leading and proven provider of WiMAX/WiBro technology, ADAPTIX is a natural partner for Interpeak," stated Johan Fornaeus, CEO, Interpeak. "This offering will allow carriers to optimize performance in order to deliver critical quality of service for products that are in hot demand, such as mobile video, gaming and VoIP."
