O2 to deploy converged wireless platform

14 Feb 2006

O2 UK has contracted Tatara Systems to deploy its Mobile Services Convergence Platform to enable integrated product offerings to business users across GPRS, 3G, and W-LAN networks. The installation will enable dual and triple mode handsets, such as O2’s own brand Xda series, to access the fastest available technology for services. The platform, including the Tatara Subscriber Gateway, is also HSDPA compliant, in preparation for O2’s planned launch of the so-called 3.5G technology.
