SAN JOSE, California – MobilityWire® – May 17, 2010
Aicent, Inc. (www.aicent.net) today announced the availability of Aicent IPX Service, a comprehensive, next-generation interconnection solution for mobile network operators (MNOs), fixed-line network operators (FNOs), Internet service providers (ISPs) and application service providers (ASPs). Aicent’s IPX, which stands for Internet protocol eXchange, allows network operators and service providers to offer their customers IP-based voice, data and video services on 3G and 4G networks spanning multiple operators in a highly controlled, secure and profitable manner, all with guaranteed quality of service (QoS).
“The telecommunications industry is again poised for great change as more powerful smartphones drive demand for faster networks,” said Mun-Kein Chang, vice president of product management at Aicent. “The combination of all these technology advances means that consumers will have innovative new voice, messaging, data and video services delivered to them via network providers. To make the most of these potentially lucrative services and to avoid competing on price alone, Aicent IPX Service gives operators an important quality of service element – vital for delivering advanced services with optimal quality – without adversely impacting service delivery margins. Aicent has integrated all IP services onto a single network, making Aicent a one-stop shop for all mobile operators.”
As mobile subscribers are increasingly adopting powerful new devices such as Android, BlackBerry and iPhone smartphones, as well as the emerging category of media tablets, operators are experiencing explosive traffic growth on their data networks. As an evolution of the company’s industry-leading and award-winning eXchange, messaging and signaling services, Aicent IPX Service gives operators a comprehensive service delivery framework for converged network services that enables interworking and roaming between operators, as well as provides guarantees for quality and service level. Existing customers migrating to Aicent IPX will find the service is the easiest way to enable roaming of converged network services.

- GPRS, CDMA, 3G and 4G roaming eXchange services
