SNRLabs, a pioneer in wireless radio convergence technologies, today announced an agreement to provide its Advanced Connection Management Suite product for Intel's next-generation handheld platform, codenamed "Moorestown". This product is optimized to work well with the Linux-based Moblin v2.1 software stack and enables a seamless connectivity solution.
The Advanced Connection Management product is part of SNRLabs' Convergence Manager Suite, a product line that smartly selects the best possible connection across multiple wireless radio devices while effectively managing precious battery life. "We found that there were significant technical issues preventing the efficient management of multiple radios in converged mobile devices that were affecting the ability to achieve a seamless and transparent user experience," said Sudipta Sen, CEO of SNRLabs.
"Our pioneering and patent-pending technology allows the device to automatically choose the best available wireless connection based on pre-selected criteria such as lowest cost, highest security, greatest bandwidth and best power management. This enables the service provider to better manage network capacity during overload times, thus avoiding the frustration of dropped calls and data interruption. The need for mobile users to manually change their radio connection disappears," continued Sen. "And when the experience is seamless, users are satisfied and rapid market adoption can happen. We're pleased and proud to be working with Intel on their next generation handheld platform."
"Moorestown" is Intel's next-generation Mobile Internet Device (MID) and Smartphone platform and is accompanied by a new Linux-based Moblin software version, Moblin v2.1. This platform is optimized to deliver high performance for a visually rich, interactive, PC-like internet experience, while consuming dramatically lower power and providing full software compatibility.
"The mobile device market segment is undergoing exciting changes as the industry is increasingly embracing the need for innovative new designs with high performance, low power, and full software compatibility that will deliver a rich, interactive, PC-like Internet experience to consumers," said Pankaj Kedia, director of global ecosystem programs in Intel's Ultra Mobility Group. "The combination of Intel's next generation Moorestown platform and SNRLabs advanced connection manager products will help make it possible for consumers to stay connected and enjoy this Internet experience irrespective of the wireless technology available."
The market for multi-radio devices, which includes smartphones, MIDs, tablets, netbooks and notebooks, is the fastest growing segment of consumer electronics today. According to IDC, the total worldwide shipments of these "converged mobile devices" will reach 1.3 billion units between now and 2012 - a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.2%. The need for SNRLabs' technology becomes increasingly relevant as wireless devices more often jump from one connection to another and applications in new markets such as automotive and medical require more sophisticated connectivity.
