Cicero Networks www.ciceronetworks.com, a leading provider of mobile convergence technologies, today announced the release of its converged rich communication client for Nokia S60 and Windows Mobile devices. With this launch, Cicero is delivering the world's first fully integrated solution for mobile voice, presence, messaging and video. CiceroPhone 2.0 provides operators with a simple to use, rich media client designed to enhance wireless services using existing IP-based and next generation IMS networks.
Rich communication services are characterized by the use of presence, messaging and video to enhance the core voice service, bringing the benefits of unified communications into the mainstream carrier environment. By adding this functionality, CiceroPhone users can make voice and video calls and chat to their on-line buddies, at the same time, from their mobile phone. Underpinning this new rich communications experience is the ability to roam across multiple networks - Wi-Fi, 2G, 3G, LTE, WiMAX without any disruption in service.
"Operators are looking beyond the current suite of independent services to combine voice, presence, messaging and video to create a rich communication experience for their customers," said Ross Brennan, CEO of Cicero Networks. “CiceroPhone 2.0 is designed to deliver on this vision, merging the best of web and wireless technologies, to build revenue and attract new customers.”
With this launch, Cicero fully exploits the power of mobile phones and the next generation networks being deployed by operators. By combining the power of VoIP with other SIP-enabled applications, Cicero is creating compelling new services that deliver real added value to operators and users alike.
Cicero Networks has led the way in delivering converged voice services over IP and circuit-switched (2G cellular) networks. Leveraging this experience, CiceroPhone 2.0 complements the IP infrastructure deployed by operators and large enterprises and provides a level of unified communications formerly only seen on the desktop. Working with the handset and with the network, CiceroPhone builds on the strengths of the underlying platform to provide a high quality, fully converged rich user experience.
CiceroPhone 2.0 will be released for general availability to operators in May 2008. Cicero will release the enhanced video client in Q3 2008.
