Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) announced that Ascom Wireless Solutions' i75 voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) handsets are leveraging TI's TNETV1700 WLAN IP phone platform.

According to the press release, TI's integrated hardware and software solution delivers the performance and low power required for Ascom to deliver extended talk and standby times to its enterprise customers, and enhanced features such as wireless telephony, alarm and messaging.

"Leveraging TI's leadership VoIP and wireless technology allows Ascom to offer a VoWiFi experience that increases overall efficiency and productivity of its users," said Staffan Ornbratt, product manager of VoWiFi system at Ascom.

TI's TNETV1700 serves at the center of Ascom's i75 handsets that support both the 802.11b and 802.11g radio networks, as well as the 802.11i and 802.11e standards for an increased level of security and voice quality, said the press release. The VoWiFi handsets offer longer talk and standby times based on the high performance and ultra-low power consumption that the TNETV1700 delivers. Built-in programmability also allows easy upgrades or expansions as standards and capabilities evolve.

"By leveraging our programmable WLAN IP phone platform, Ascom provides investment protection for its customers, including the ability to update systems through software to enhance capabilities or further increase talk and standby times," said Pamela Jordan, WLAN IP phone product manager at TI.
