HelloSoft Announces the Availability of Its VoIP Solution for LTE Devices

Partners With Beceem to Enable Seamless VoIP Capabilities for 4G Multi-Com Platforms

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwire - February 15, 2010) - Mobile World Congress - HelloSoft announced today the extension of its carrier proven VoIP and Voice Call Continuity (VCC) solution suite to future 4G-LTEdevices. HelloSoft's VoIP and VCC solution allows seamless handoff of voice calls between VoIP on the 4G LTE network and circuit switched voice systems that run on cellular 2G and 3G networks. Supporting VoIP over LTE (VoLTE) extends HelloSoft's recently released, award winning VoIP and VCC Convergence Client Software platform for Android mobile devices, which also supports handsets running Windows Mobile, Symbian and Linux operating systems.

HelloSoft is extending its partnership with Beceem to provide a complete platform for VoIP and VCC on Beceem's new 4G multi-com chip that supports both LTE and WiMAX. This extends the collaboration between both companies which have already enabled VoIP and VCC solutions to run on 4G-WiMAX devices. Beceem's 4G-LTE/WiMAX chip is designed to support session hand-off between WiMAX and LTE, which is a key enabler for HelloSoft to show its VCC and convergence software client providing unified communications across multiple 4G networks.

Lars Johnsson, Beceem's Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, commented: "Beceem is pleased to expand its partnership with HelloSoft and leverage the previous VoIP over WiMAX work to bring VoIP calls to LTE devices that will support seamless handoff of VoIP calls between LTE and WiMAX, and also to legacy cellular networks, enabling a truly seamless 'mobile voice' experience." Johnsson continued, "We feel that the convergence and roaming in 4G networks, taken together with full QoS VoIP services, is very compelling to service providers, and working with HelloSoft's advanced VoIP and VCC Android client solution will accelerate this trend."

Allan Johnson, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Business Development at HelloSoft, says, "As the networks upgrade and LTE adoption gains pace, VoLTE will experience strong adoption. The combined Beceem 4G-LTE/WiMAX chipset, together with the Titan Android Convergence Client, brings together two industry firsts from leaders in their respective industries. HelloSoft Android Titan Convergence Client offers mobile device manufacturers a complete solution for Android including VoIP, VCC and handoff of Voice calls and data sessions both between a wide range of IP bearers including LTE, WiMAX, HSPA, EVDO and WiFi and between circuit switched voice and VoIP over IP pipes. With Beceem's new 4G-LTE/WiMAX solution and their extensive 4G multi-mode experience, we see this as a strong combination with HelloSoft's industry first complete convergence client solution for Android with VoIP, VCC for seamless handoff and HelloSoft's IP to IP handoff solution. The resulting turnkey solution will enable ODMs and OEMs to build a wide range of exciting next generation 4G LTE and WiMAX devices allowing any Android application to work over any bearer."
