Ericsson, Tatara to Deliver CDMA Femtocell Solution with VoIP, SIP

SipTrunkingReport Contributor

Ericsson and Tatara Systems reportedly say they’re collaborating to deliver a code division multiple access femtocell solution over an IP multimedia system Core Network to provide voice, messaging and data services to homes and enterprises. 

Providers of SIP-based network integration and femtocell convergence, the companies say they’ve demonstrated a solution that enables CDMA network operators to integrate femtocells into their IMS networks.
This provides both enterprises and home subscribers in-building service levels that meet the service levels and voice quality of macro networks. According to the companies, the solution combines Ericsson’s IMS Core Network infrastructure with a SIP-based femtocell and the Tatara convergence server for CDMA-1xRTT.
Tatara Systems delivers a SIP-based solution for femtocell network integration, and the company enables network operators to offer converged mobile services. The company’s TCS is a standards-based SIP/IMS inter-working application server.
It enables inter-working between IMS or VoIP infrastructure and macro mobile networks. This inter-working helps in delivering cIP application services to legacy handsets irrespective of the connected domain or access technology.
“Ericsson is excited about integrating our IMS Core Network Solution with strong technology partners such as Tatara to bring new revenue generating opportunities to operators via femtocell technologies,” said Angel Ruiz, president and chief executive officer for North America at Ericsson.
He also said that Ericsson’s IMS domain blends well with Tatara’s convergence capabilities, enabling cost-effective deployment of new revenue generators for operators responding to a dynamic subscriber market.
Ericsson provides technology and services to telecom operators. The company’s portfolio comprises mobile and fixed network infrastructure, broadband and multimedia solutions. The company offers standards-based IMS solutions. Reportedly, the company has had more than 50 IMS system contracts to date.
E.Y. Snowden, president and chief executive officer at Tatara Systems, said that in addition to providing increased service levels for homes and enterprises, his company’s IP-centric approach to integration with Ericsson’s IMS core network facilitates mobile convergence and the development and delivery of future applications for the enterprise and home.
