Advus Corporation, a leading global Technology and Consulting firm, today announced that it has signed an Application Development Agreement with AirTouch Communications, Inc. (ATCH:OTCBB) to advance the secure Android-based platform that converges voice, data, video, surveillance and entertainment being developed by AirTouch.
Under this agreement Advus will provide software innovation services to AirTouch which will significantly expand AirTouch’s integrated telecom services program. By taking full advantage of Advus’ expertise in engineering massive and scalable open-source-based solutions to Global-500 companies, AirTouch will have access to high-end Android and middleware development capabilities for the deployment of its next generation integrated application platform.
Commenting on the agreement, Dr. Marcelo Sant’Anna, CEO of Advus, said, “We are excited to be at the forefront of the mobile convergence market with AirTouch. As mobile broadband expands through the deployment of 4G-LTE and other standards worldwide, multi-play solutions will cut the cord and become 100% wireless. To do so, innovative companies like AirTouch will integrate more and more software in their offerings to keep up with the new technological challenges and customers demands. With this agreement in place Advus will offer some of its best Android and middleware engineering capabilities to make the AirTouch integrated application platform secure, fast and even more seamless for business and for fun.”
“As mobile convergence evolves, hardware and software must function as a cohesive platform to integrate multiple diverse applications like data, voice, security and entertainment. In order to provide to the market a well-rounded solution, companies need to have best-of-breed engineering teams that can cover all aspects of the combined hardware and software. By establishing this agreement AirTouch is shifting gears in terms of releasing an Android-based application platform that will be a step up for full over-the-air multi-play boxes in the market. We are looking forward to working with Marcelo and Advus Technology Group on deploying our next generation of applications,” said Hide Kanakubo, AirTouch CEO.
Content delivery for business and entertainment is progressively becoming a common over-the-air application as powerful smartphones become ubiquitous and cell signal coverage becomes broadband capable. TV set-top boxes, as well as IPPBX routers, are continuously becoming wireless both in terms of device connectivity and back-end connection to providers. Android is a major player in that space, mainly through new features offered by recent releases such as Ice Cream Sandwich. Through careful customization and integration Android is poised to be the number one open platform for these kind of applications. Advus and AirTouch announcement leverages that and shows that more and more the traditional distinction between hardware and software developers is about to disappear and offer consumers a much better and integrated mobile user-experience.
