Kodiak releases SIMpower GSM thin client based on Java Card technology
Kodiak Networks has announced Kodiak SIMpower, a thin client which enables premium voice service functionality on existing GSM handsets. These advanced voice services (AVS) can be accessed directly from a mobile phone and include applications, such as Kodiak Voice Bridge for instant group conferencing, and Kodiak Voice Notes for instant voice messaging for individuals and groups.

Kodiak SIMpower leverages the overall applications, performance and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) interfaces of the Kodiak Real-Time Exchange (RTX) System. These applications include: Instant Availability (the capacity to see if a contact or group is available to receive a call), and Contact and Group Management (the ability to manage individuals and group names, directly from the handset). Kodiak SIMpower is interoperable with virtually any brand or model of GSM phone worldwide, including: Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, Siemens, SONY/Ericsson, LG Electronics and others.

The card is based on Sun Microsystems Java Card technology. The company believes that this platform allows GSM operators to offer their subscribers valuable services that increase revenue per minutes of use (MOU), boost overall average revenue per user (ARPU) and improve customer loyalty. From an end-user perspective, GSM subscribers have the opportunity to experience the benefits of AVS applications without costly and inconvenient handset replacement. These applications and benefits include:

  • Kodiak Voice Bridge: provides fast setup of full-duplex, mobile conference calls with up to 30 wireless and landline participants. Business colleagues, social groups and families can instantly initiate or join a conference call.

  • Kodiak Voice Notes: allows instant voice messaging from Kodiak-enabled phones to contacts/groups with wireless or landline phones. Subscribers use their GSM contact lists to leave voicemail messages for individuals or members of a group without waiting to leave a message or ringing the recipient's phone.

  • Kodiak Instant Availability: indicates real-time user availability to receive wireless calls. Availability states include "available," "do not disturb," and "offline." This user-driven feature decreases "telephone tag" and ensures privacy when a recipient is in a meeting or away for the day.

  • Kodiak Quick Groups: provides users with the ability to select members of their contact list to create a quick group call. Users can instantly reach their associates or friends to share news and updates.

  • Handset-Based Contact & Group Management: allows subscribers to instantly create, modify and delete individual contacts, groups and group members, directly on their handset.
