UNIADEX, KDDI Forge Alliance for Sales of Mobile Solutions Using Wireless LAN-Enabled Mobile E02SA

KDDI Corporation


UNIADEX, Ltd. and KDDI have reached an agreement to collaborate in the development of the sales and service of mobile solutions using the E02SA au mobile phone for the enterprise market equipped with wireless LAN function provided by KDDI.

Under this agreement, UNIADEX, as an authorized partner of KDDI's wireless LAN mobile phone extension solution "Office Freedom" [1], will commence the provision of AiriP® Wireless IP Phone Solutions that utilize the unique features of the E02SA from July.

KDDI's E02SA can be used as an extension phone when in the office, through wireless LAN-enabled VoIP, or as an au mobile phone when out of the office, creating an efficient office environment. Compatible with both wireless LAN standard IEEE802.11b and IEEE802.11g [2], the E02SA also uses IEEE802.11e [3] for the QoS [4] wireless sector, resulting in faster transmission speeds and enhanced voice quality. Furthermore, the E02SA uses BREW® [5], which facilitates the development of a variety of application softwares to enhance the efficiency of the usage environment. It is therefore expected that the E02SA will be used not only for telephone communication but also as an intranet terminal that allows the development of applications.

Until now, UNIADEX has sold AiriP Wireless IP Telephony Solutions, which combine wireless LAN switches made by Aruba Wireless Networks, known for its advanced security features and high-speed roaming, with NextGen SIP servers [6], which offer flexible capability to respond to the diverse needs of users. By adding the new E02SA to the current lineup of wireless IP phone equipment, the company seeks to further expand its wireless IP phone operation.

In addition, UNIADEX and KDDI have agreed to collaborate in the planning and development of other mobile solutions and services for companies.

Features of the UNIADEX AiriP Wireless IP Telephony Solution with au wireless LAN mobile E02SA

The E02SA can be used as an internal office phone or intranet terminal using a wireless LAN in the office, allowing voice and data to co-exist on the same wireless LAN network, such as a PC. Further, it is planned to provide solutions that are equipped with features developed exclusively by UNIADEX. These include location tracking (to identify the whereabouts of employees) that uses GPS to display positional information at the place where the user is, from an access point position detected at the office, and hookup with internal office telephone directory systems.
