OSS Nokalva ASN.1 Tools Used in New York City Wireless Network

SOMERSET, NJ--(Marketwire - December 10, 2009) - The OSS Nokalva ASN.1 Tools are being used in the New York City Wireless Network (NYCWiN) -- a broadband network that supports New York City's public safety community.

In 2006 the New York City Department of Information Technology (NYC DoITT) awarded a five-year $500 million contract to provide the city's broadband public-safety network. This enhanced mobile wireless communications network supports first responders by giving them quick access to critical information in the field and enabling them to better protect the city and its residents.

The selected solution uses standards-based mobile broadband wireless technology known as Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems (UMTS), supplied by IPWireless, a leading provider of 3GPP technology for new applications and markets. This technology delivers broadband mobility, high capacity, reliability and scalability. Many of the UMTS/3GPP protocols are defined using ASN.1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One). The OSS Nokalva ASN.1 Tools are widely used in implementing 3GPP protocols including UMTS.

The OSS ASN.1 Tools provide highly reliable, high performance codecs used by the applications which process these UMTS messages. The OSS Tools, available on more than 250 platforms, are used by 900+ customers worldwide in a wide range of mission critical applications such as the NYC public-safety network.

"OSS Nokalva, Inc. is proud to be a part of this important project. Our ASN.1 Tools offer the superior quality, performance, and technical support required by such a mission-critical application," stated Frank Curran, OSS ASN.1 Senior Solutions Specialist.

The OSS ASN.1 Tools are available for a free 30 day evaluation -- For more information, please visit, or call +1 (888) 677-2761 (Toll free USA and Canada), + 1 (732) 302-0750 (International).
