Ericsson Mobility Gateway help AT&T & BT deliver 1-no. global wireless service

Ericsson Mobility Gateway to help AT&T and BT deliver one-number global wireless service AT&T Wireless Services and BT Wireless have deployed Ericsson's Mobility Gateway as a foundation for WorldConnect® service. WorldConnect is one of the first products offered through the two companies' Advance strategic global alliance. WorldConnect is an important step toward providing feature-rich services to customers on their domestic number while traveling worldwide. Ericsson's Mobility Gateway, which operates on the JAMBALA open platform, will help WorldConnect deliver wireless coverage on a single phone number regardless of whether the subscriber is using a TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) network or a GSM (Global Standard for Mobile Communications) network. This capability allows subscribers to use digital features in more than 100 countries. "Extensive travel is frenetic enough without having to consider differences in wireless service," said Per-Arne Sandström, President and Chief Executive Officer, Ericsson Inc. "Mobility Gateway helps AT&T Wireless and BT Wireless to provide subscribers with voice service wherever they roam. Eventually that capability will expand to include key features such as voice mail notification and SMS delivery." "The primary objective for the Advance alliance is to provide seamless mobile communications services around the world," said Mohan Gyani, President and Chief Executive Officer of AT&T Wireless Services, Inc. "WorldConnect is a fundamental step toward realizing that objective." Ericsson is the leading communications supplier, combining innovation in mobility and Internet in creating the new era of Mobile Internet. Ericsson provides total solutions covering everything from systems and applications to mobile phones and other communications tools.
