Ascom Wireless Solutions announced they have certified
interoperability between their VoWiFi handset, the Ascom i62 and the Enterasys
3600 series wireless access points.

“We are happy to work with Enterasys to deliver a joint
solution meeting the needs of both our customers. This cooperation guarantees
that customers can rely on a secure and high performance VoWiFi solution based
on 802.11n standards. It will enable us to provide our customers a more
comprehensive mobile enterprise solution,” said Peter Hardi, vice
president, international marketing and product management, Ascom Wireless

“We have designed, validated, and tested these solutions
in order to meet the high expectations of our mutual customers in the areas of
superior performance, best in class reliability, and quality of service,”
said Ram Apparalaju, vice president of marketing Enterasys Networks.

“Ascom and Enterasys have worked to develop a solution
that exceeds the standard WiFi interoperability certifications. We are
providing higher call capacities at greater ranges, with better call quality
for each user. This meets end user expectation for wired-like performance with
seamless mobility,”  Ram added.

The solutions were jointly tested at the Ascom Interoperability
Lab and the Enterasys Wireless Interoperability Lab. The interoperability
testing started with an emphasis on basic connectivity, with further testing
conducted to ensure high security support, quality of service, mobility,
stability and performance during roaming.

On-going interoperability testing will be performed for new
software releases or feature enhancements to ensure continual interoperability
between the companies’ solutions.
