Finnish telecomms solutions provider Nokia said on Tuesday (1 November) that it had completed both voice and data calls with Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) technology in a Nokia Solutions Experience Center in the US. UMA, a 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Program) standard, is an access technology that allows seamless handover of mobile voice and data from a cellular network to a wireless local area network (WLAN/Wi-Fi). With UMA operators can deliver voice and data services to subscribers over the Wi-Fi access networks, increasing mobile service usage while decreasing costs of network deployment, Nokia said. The voice calls were conducted from a live cellular network to WLAN and from WLAN to cellular. In addition, a data call was conducted from cellular to WLAN. Both voice and data calls were completed using a Nokia test phone.
