Oki Electric Industry Co., Ltd. and KDDI Corporation today announced an agreement to collaborate in providing mobile solutions for the enterprise market using E02SA, KDDI's "au" mobile phone equipped with wireless LAN functionality. Based on this agreement, Oki will provide mobile solutions for enterprises in Japan, starting October 2006.
"Collaborating with KDDI will enable us to flexibly respond to various enterprise needs, as private IP Centrex [1] systems are becoming popular in Japanese enterprises, with a high interest in wireless LAN-based mobile Centrex [2] systems," said Masashi Tsuboi, President of IP Systems Company at Oki Electric. "We have been providing our IP telephony server, the IP CONVERGENCE® Server SS9100 to enterprise customers for their IP Centrex and mobile Centrex systems. By including KDDI's E02SA in to this lineup, enterprise users will now be able to seamlessly connect to PSTNs (mobile phone networks) and private networks (LANs) using a single handset"

KDDI's E02SA, planned for launch in July 2006, enables enterprise users to build an efficient network with a single handset, as it functions as a VoIP extension phone equipped with wireless LAN in the office, as well as an "au" mobile phone outside the office. E02SA is compliant with IEEE802.1b, the wireless LAN standard, as well as with IEEE802.11g and IEEE802.11e for the quality of service (QoS) control function in the wireless area, thus enabling high-speed and high voice quality.

Adding E02SA to Oki's SS9100 lineup that offers mobile Centrex systems provides enterprises with a new communication method that flexibly responds to their various needs. Oki also provides MWINS™ BR2100 Series, Oki's wireless LAN access point for VoIP, which is compliant with E02SA's wireless LAN standards. By connecting MWINS with E02SA, users can achieve a high voice quality and an affordable communication environment.

[1]  Private IP Centrex:
This is a form of IP telephony that integrates voice communication onto IP networks and centralizes PBXs that were conventionally installed at each location into one location for easier management and operation. This enables customers to significantly reduce operating costs, maximize the usage of existing equipment, and connect with internal business applications.
[2]  Mobile Centrex:
This is a private IP Centrex using mobile IP handsets. By using mobile terminals, users will not be limited to their seats or locations, providing a new type of work style.
