Birdstep Technology Launches Seamless Connectivity Solution for Android

(Oslo, November 16, 2010) Birdstep Technology ASA, a leading provider of secure and seamless wireless connectivity, has launched a seamless connectivity solution for the Android handset market with the release of SafeMove Mobile IP for Android

The SafeMove Mobile IP solution is an industry standards-based product which leverages on the successful SafeMove secure mobility products delivered internationally over many years. An initial order from a North American customer to enable a fixed-mobile convergence solution has already been received, and expectations within Birdstep are that this new product will see rapid market traction in the high mobility Smartphone market.

The solution is designed to provide an enhanced mobility experience to both service providers and subscribers in an “always connected” market.

SafeMove Mobile IP is a unique application that automatically connects smartphones to the best available network, giving users an easy way to utilize Wi-Fi/3G/LTE to connect to the internet and operator services. SafeMove Mobile IP can prioritize WiFi over cellular networks to provide the fastest download speeds and cheaper, more reliable connectivity. This also allows operators to offload data services to Wi-Fi in order to free up 3G network capacity.

As users move between their home, office, car and other locations, SafeMove Mobile IP ensures that they remain connected to a wireless network and that active voice and data services survive network changes and gaps in coverage. The result is the unification of multiple wireless networks into a single infrastructure over which operators can deliver new services and revolutionize the user experience.

“Birdstep has been highly successful in bringing sophisticated Mobile Broadband connectivity solutions to the market. We are very excited about bringing a solution to market that will deliver a truly connected experience” says Tim Carter, Managing Director, SafeMove. “The growth in market share for Android devices has been phenomenal and we are extremely positive about the potential for this solution to service the needs of service providers and subscribers alike”
