FORT MYERS, FL—April 13, 2016—Interop Technologies, a specialist in virtualized IMS infrastructure and IP services technologies for telecommunication service providers, today announced that SI Wireless has launched WiFi Calling using the Interop Technologies CorePlusX℠ Voice-Over-WiFi (VoWiFi) solution. The operator has made VoWiFi service available to subscribers across its markets in Tennessee and Kentucky.
Interop’s cloud-based VoWiFi solution will enable SI Wireless subscribers to make voice calls and send text messages across any available WiFi network. With its innovative WiFi Calling client, the solution supports native dialing experiences on customer devices, making the calling experience natural and seamless.
“Interop’s CorePlusX℠ VoWiFi solution will allow us to capitalize on the immediate market demand for WiFi Calling, as well as allow our subscribers to experience one of the most exciting advanced IP services in the marketplace,” said Mike Jaksich, CTO, SI Wireless. “Many competing OTT voice applications are available today, so offering WiFi Calling as our own branded service helps us keep a leading position in our markets.”
VoWiFi is one of the many components of Interop’s CorePlusX℠ suite, a complete standards-based, end-to-end IMS core and advanced IP services solution that enables new offerings to be deployed separately or in any combination with other CorePlusX℠ services. This approach provides operators with optimum flexibility to meet the demands of their respective markets at any time. All CorePlusX℠ services reduce operator upfront cost and complexity because the suite is fully managed and deployed from the Interop Cloud™, shortening time to market while providing a risk-free path to next-generation communications.
“Interop is a trusted vendor with proven cloud solutions, so we have full confidence to start our path to all-IP with the CorePlusX℠ solution,” added Jaksich.
“Helping operators meet their immediate market demand while also establishing a seamless path to other advanced IP services, such as VoLTE and RCS, is a true point of differentiation for us,” said Mike Slamka, Director of Customer Relations, Interop Technologies. “Since these new IP services deliver immediate benefits to operators, time to market becomes essential.”
