Mobile Access System Supports Nationwide Rollout

Wed, 08/08/2007 - 10:42am
NXP Semiconductors announces that its Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) cell-phone solution is being deployed in the very first nationwide commercial rollout of a UMA-based service in North America — the T-Mobile® HotSpot at HomeSM service launched last month by T-Mobile USA, Inc. Leveraged by Samsung Electronics in its exclusive T409 dual-mode handset for T-Mobile, NXP’s UMA-enabled Nexperia™ cellular system solution enables the Samsung phone to seamlessly switch between conventional cellular networks and Wi-Fi hotspots at home, in the office and other public areas for voice, data and multimedia calls.

NXP’s UMA-enabled Nexperia cellular system solution delivers all the hardware, software validation, support and interoperability testing necessary for implementation of UMA functionality in today’s mobile handsets. The solution is an ARM9-based GSM/GPRS/EDGE multimedia platform, providing maximum product flexibility and easy differentiation for handset manufacturers. For WLAN functions, the solution uses the NXP low-power 802.11g WLAN system. The device uses advanced process technologies and packaging techniques to integrate the baseband/MAC, radio and power amplifier.
