Kyocera Wireless Showcases Wi-Fi/CDMA Convergence
Posted on 5-Apr-2006 23:56. | Tags Filed under: News.



Kyocera Wireless Corp. gave a sneak peek at the future of CDMA-based mobile phones and services by unveiling live demonstrations of several new handset technologies at the CTIA Wireless 2006 trade show, in Las Vegas.

The company demonstrated a dual-mode prototype handset platform modified to enable Wi-Fi-based Voice Over IP (VoIP) calls and streaming content. The company also showed prototype handsets featuring both the MediaFLO and uiOne solutions from QUALCOMM Incorporated.

The dual-mode Wi-Fi/CDMA platform is a complement to traditional voice and data services on cellular networks. Called by the company "[a] low-cost, high-efficiency delivery vehicle", Wi-Fi/CDMA service offers enhanced coverage and high-speed (up to 54 Mbps) multimedia services when in range of WLAN networks.

According to Kyocera, this fixed-mobile convergence is attracting growing interest from wireless service providers, and especially mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs).

MediaFLO, an end-to-end solution from QUALCOMM that enables multicasting of high-quality video, audio streams, Clipcast media, and IP data-casting to mobile handsets, is being demonstrated on prototype Kyocera handsets that feature Organic LED (OLED) displays.
