HelloSoft and Aricent Partner to Provide Fixed Mobile Convergence Support for Next Generation Handsets

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - November 15, 2007) - HelloSoft Inc., a leading supplier of VoIP technologies for the converged market, and Aricent, a full-service, full-spectrum communications software company, today announced the successful completion of interoperability testing between HelloSoft's VoIP software client and Aricent's Service Continuity Server, SCS2100L. This collaboration will enable fixed-mobile convergence solutions to operate on a variety of dual-mode and multi-mode handset devices.

The Hellosoft client will now integrate with Aricent's Service Continuity Server to allow mobile devices to switch between wireless and wireline networks, so a single personal mobile device can be used in the home, the office or on the road across circuit switched (GSM, 3GPP) and packet switched (IMS, pre-IMS VoIP) networks. The Hellosoft VoIP software client is now available on handsets such HTC DoPod 818 pro, Qtek S200 and Samsung SPH-M4500, and will provide support for upcoming next-generation handsets.

"HelloSoft's proven VoIP solutions combined with Aricent's powerful Service Continuity Server open up a variety of new connectivity options for service providers," said Sajal, Gupta, Business Unit Head, Products, Aricent. "We're excited to be working with HelloSoft to enable a seamless user experience between wireless and wireline devices."

"Completing this interoperability testing with Aricent allows HelloSoft to continue our initiative to bring optimized VoIP and IMS/VCC solutions to the fixed mobile convergence market," said Ron Victor, HelloSoft's General Manager of Marketing and Business Development. "Support for optimal routing and policy-based handovers offers a unique advantage to service providers by giving them the opportunity to leverage new revenue generating services within converged networks."
