Kineto Wireless Inc. announced that it is working with Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) to enable Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) support on TI's OMAP-Vox platform. As a result of the collaboration, mobile handset manufacturers will be able to rapidly develop UMA-enabled Microsoft Windows Mobile smartphones and UMA-enabled feature phones based on the TI OMAPV1030 GSM/GPRS/EDGE solution.

Under the collaboration, TI will offer OMAPV1030 solutions, which mobile handset vendors can combine with the Kineto UMA Handset Client to build UMA-enabled handsets.

"Operator demand for UMA-enabled handsets continues to grow rapidly," said Avner Goren, marketing director of TI cellular systems solutions. "With its proven track record in UMA, Kineto helped deliver a combined solution based on TI's OMAPV1030 processor to meet handset manufacturers' needs."

"We are delighted to be collaborating with Texas Instruments on UMA technology," said Mark Powell, vice president of the client business unit and co-founder of Kineto. "TI is a leading supplier of baseband platforms to handset vendors and partnering to leverage the excellent OMAPV1030 processor is a tremendous way to help the mobile handset industry satisfy the growing operator demand for more UMA devices."
