Moovera and IPWireless Deliver Wi-Fi Mobility over TD-CDMA

Share Article

Moovbox Broadband Gateways bridge Wi-Fi with carrier-class data networks for broadband on the move.

These frequencies offer good propagation, allowing IPWireless-enabled Moovbox deployments to be more robust in emergency situations.

Moovera Networks, a leading developer of fixed and mobile wireless systems, and IPWireless, the world’s leading provider of UMTS TD-CDMA mobile broadband solutions, today announced that the Moovera family of Moovbox mobile broadband gateways will now fully support TD-CDMA from IPWireless as a high-speed wireless backhaul option. Moovera’s line of rugged Moovbox gateways seamlessly integrates Wi-Fi with carrier-grade cellular backhaul, enabling service providers and local authorities to cost-effectively provide in-vehicle Wi-Fi service on public transport.

“Traditionally Wi-Fi hotspots have required a wired connection such as DSL for backhaul,” said Jim Baker, Moovera CEO and founder. “With a growing number of UMTS TD-CDMA networks in service around the world, the combination of our Moovbox Broadband Gateways and IPWireless TD-CDMA technology allows deployment of mobile hotspots with Wi-Fi access at multi-megabit speeds wherever there’s wireless carrier network coverage.”

Moovera and IPWireless are also targeting public safety applications in licensed frequencies to support first responders and transportation personnel with high-speed video and data capabilities. “TD-CDMA offers very fast bi-directional communications in frequencies including 850-900MHz, 1900-2025 MHz, and 2500-2690 MHz, all of which are licensed bands better suited for mission-critical applications,” continued Baker. “These frequencies offer good propagation, allowing IPWireless-enabled Moovbox deployments to be more robust in emergency situations.” In addition to providing VPN-encrypted Wi-Fi access, Moovbox Gateways feature secure Ethernet connectivity for IP-based devices such as on-street and on-vehicle IP-CCTV systems and transport telematics.

“We are delighted to welcome Moovera to the growing ecosystem of TD-CDMA device partners,” said Dr William Jones, CEO and co-founder of IPWireless. “Bridging Wi-Fi with TD-CDMA, and taking Internet access onto the street and into vehicles as Moovera has done, builds on the vision of ubiquitous connectivity and improves the business case for our operators worldwide.

The Moovbox M100 mobile gateway is a ruggedized access point and cellular router, offering multiple WAN radios for failover and featuring built-in GPS. Moovbox products also offer secure Ethernet for IP-CCTV, DVR and telematics equipment with remote in-bound access for device control. Moovsuite management tools provide real-time vehicle tracking, remote device configuration, and Wi-Fi portal and usage statistics.
