Kineto Adds VoLTE Support to Smart Wi-Fi Solution
MILPITAS, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Wireless, Inc., an innovator in the mobile industry, today announced
that it has added IMS-based voice and messaging capabilities compatible
with the GSMA's (News - Alert) VoLTE initiative to its Smart Wi-Fi smartphone client.
By adding support for the GSMA's IMS-based voice and messaging profile
(IR.92), the Kineto Smart Wi-Fi client can use existing Wi-Fi access
points to provide coverage to smartphone subscribers when they are at
home or in the office - locations where Wi-Fi is most often used. With
VoLTE support in the Smart Wi-Fi client, ordinary Wi-Fi access points
become LTE (News - Alert) small cells, bringing indoor coverage and capacity to macro
LTE network deployments.
"Kineto is the leader in delivering mobile voice and messaging services
over Wi-Fi as a seamless extension to a macro cellular radio network,"
said Steve Shaw (News - Alert), vice president of corporate marketing for Kineto
Wireless. "Adding IMS voice and messaging support to our Smart Wi-Fi
client lets mobile operators quickly extend VoLTE services to their
customers over Wi-Fi, turning existing access points in the home and
office into LTE small cells."
Kineto's Smart Wi-Fi client runs on more than 10 million smartphones
today, delivering hundreds of millions of mobile voice minutes a month
over Wi-Fi. With Smart Wi-Fi, subscribers receive a consistent voice and
messaging experience regardless of the underlying network.
