Wireless Network Infrastructure - Azaire Networks

Azaire Networks Receives CTIA Wireless 2006 E-Tech Award for Innovation in Network Infrastructure

Azaire Networks
April 25, 2006

Azaire Networks, the Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) solutions provider with the most deployments worldwide and the first to offer an industry standard I-WLAN solution, announced that its Next Generation IP Converged Network Platform (IP-CNP) received a Wireless Emerging Technologies Award at CTIA WIRELESS 2006 in the Network Infrastructure – UMA Network category. Award recipients were announced on April 6 in a ceremony at the Las Vegas Convention Center during the CTIA WIRELESS 2006 Convention.

The Wireless E-tech Awards program is designed to give industry recognition and exposure to the best wireless products and services in the areas of Consumer, Enterprise and Network technology. Nearly 200 applications were submitted and reviewed by a panel of recognized members of the media, industry analysts and executives, as well as select show attendees. Products were judged on innovation, functionality, technological importance, implementation and overall “wow” factor.

"Azaire's hybrid network approach based on the 3GPP I-WLAN standard enables operators to integrate a wide range of new IP access technologies including WiFi and WiMax, as well as support dual mode solutions for voice and data services based on UMA or IMS," said Naveen Dhar, Vice President of Marketing at Azaire Networks. "We are honored to receive this award which signifies the flexibility of the I-WLAN solution to support UMA."

“We are extremely proud of the e-Tech awards program and continually amazed at the level of ingenuity present in the submissions,” said Robert Mesirow, vice president and show director for CTIA WIRELESS. “On behalf of CTIA, we congratulate Azaire Networks on this accomplishment and look forward to their continued innovation in the field of Fixed Mobile Convergence.”

Jim Grams, Azaire Networks’ Chief Technology Officer, spoke on two panels at the conference: “Fixed Mobile Convergence: The Future Discussed Today” and “WiMAX and 3G: Competitors or Complements?” On these panels, Jim highlighted Azaire Networks’ growing roster of commercial deployments, making the company the only fixed mobile convergence solution provider that has actual operator deployments. This comes as a result of Azaire Networks’ hybrid network approach which operators have identified as providing the most rapid and cost effective method for offering new revenue generating voice, data and multimedia services. He also noted the importance of operators adopting standards-based solutions to ensure simple integration with existing core assets.

Azaire Networks’ 3GPP-compliant IP-CNP enables service providers to offer mobile broadband services through the creation of hybrid networks. Further as part of the IP-CNP, the Metro Wireless Services Gateway (M-WSG) is the first commercially available Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA)-based convergence gateway supporting legacy voice and IP services supporting IMS. Hybrid networks integrate wide area cellular and IP access networks (such as Wi-Fi and WiMAX), allowing operators to extend their 2.5G/3G footprints quickly and cost effectively. Service providers are able to offer new voice, data and multimedia services that increase ARPU, while business users and consumers receive the broadband services they desire on the best available network.

Azaire Networks is a leading provider of hybrid network solutions with deployments in service in Europe, North America and Asia. Customers include T-Mobile, Chunghwa Telecom, SingTel Optus, Rogers Wireless, Mobilkom Austria , GoMobile and several others, with additional operators currently testing the IP-CNP. Azaire Networks' flagship IP-CNP product is the first 3GPP-compliant IWLAN solution that enables operators to cost effectively extend 2.5G/3G network coverage.

The company is headquartered in Santa Clara, California with offices in Germany, India, and the Netherlands. It is funded by Rustic Canyon Partners, Woodside Fund, Convergence Partners and other investors.
