Companies successfully demonstrate Iuh interoperability between ip.access femtocell Access Point and Kineto's Multi-Service Access Gateway

Cambridge, UK, and Milpitas, CA, 22 June 2010 - ip.access, the leading developer of femtocell and picocell solutions, and Kineto Wireless, the leading supplier of solutions that enable delivery of mobile services over broadband, have announced successful interoperability testing between ip.access' Oyster 3G femtocell Access Point and Kineto's Multi-Service Access Gateway (MSA-GW).

The testing was based on 3GPP's Release 8 Iuh specification, which defines the standard interface between femtocell Access Points and the femtocell gateway. The Iuh standard makes it easier for mobile network operators to deploy femtocells in multi-vendor environments, ultimately giving them a wider choice of suppliers.

Kineto and ip.access have separately deployed femtocell solutions successfully for mobile network operators. The two companies have taken a leading role in the development of the Iuh standard through their involvement in the Femto Forum and 3GPP, and both companies participated in the world's first femtocell plugfest organized by the Femto Forum and ETSI in March 2010.

'We are fully committed to the standards process, and are pleased to extend our participation in the Femto Forum plugfest to a deeper level with Kineto,' said Dr. Nick Johnson, CTO of ip.access. 'The femtocell industry's progress in defining and implementing open standards has been impressive, and we see this is an important step in proving and improving those standards. Kineto and ip.access are two companies distinguished by having their technology live in production networks. This step marks another important milestone in our lengthening technical leadership.'

'Delivery of standards-based femtocell systems are crucial to supporting the next phase of operator deployments,' said Ken Kolderup, vice president and general manager of Kineto's Infrastructure Business Unit. 'The relative ease with which we were able to confirm interoperability with ip.access is a testament to both the completeness of the Iu h specification and the market-readiness of our respective products.'
