Redpine Signals and Ascom Partner to Develop Next Generation Communication Devices
Ascom Adopts Redpine's Dual-Band 802.11n Single Stream Offering For New Generation of Phones
The new VoWiFi phone designs are built upon Ascom's long experience in offering state of the art purpose-built handsets, wireless voice- and message transmission systems, and customized alarm and positioning applications. Ascom's customers are found in areas ranging from Hospitals, Elderly Care, Industry, Retail sector, Secure Establishments and Hotels - all of which see increasing amounts of wireless traffic. In these scenarios, the 802.11n wireless LAN standard, even in a low power single-stream mode, provides the benefits of higher throughput through MAC and PHY efficiency, longer range through provisions such as STBC, and importantly, the preservation of 802.11n network capacity. VoWiFi further benefits from 802.11n through PSMP - that allows handsets to maintain large talk-times in a deployment with considerable Wi-Fi traffic.
Redpine Signals has been working closely with Ascom in bringing in the differentiations of its Wi-Fi product to Ascom's handset designs. Redpine's Lite-Fi(TM) technology, based on its RS9110 802.11n SoC, provides key advantages in a VoWiFi solution - including high performance in multipath environments, best-in-class standby power consumption, an active Wi-Fi power consumption of less than 20 mW through the use of uAPSD (certified as WMM-PS), use of less crowded 5 GHz spectrum, voice performance certified through the Wi-Fi Alliance's Voice-Personal program, and enterprise class security through WPA2(TM) Enterprise.
"Redpine's expertise in developing and deploying high performance and low power wireless technology perfectly complements Ascom's experience in delivering solutions for wireless on-site communication that support and optimize their customers' mission-critical processes," said Venkat Mattela, CEO of Redpine Signals. "Our pioneering design has been the world's first SDIO device to be Wi-Fi certified for the 802.11n draft 2.0 certification, along with WMM, WMM-PS and WPS. It is also among the first designs to be certified for Voice-Personal - the Wi-Fi certification that helps ensure a satisfactory user experience for Voice over Wi-Fi applications," he added.
"We were impressed by Redpine's thorough understanding of wireless technology and low-power system know-how," said
