The Finnish-Swedish telecomms group TeliaSonera AB said on Thursday (24 November) that it had executed the first phase of its pilot test of the UMA concept in Denmark and would now proceed to the next phase. TeliaSonera said that it was the first in Denmark to test the concept based on the international technology standard Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) with a wireless telephone that functions as an IP telephone on the fixed network in the home and as a mobile telephone on the mobile network outside the home. The first phase consisted of pilot tests with GSM/Bluetooth telephones, and in the second phase tests would be carried out with GSM/Wi-Fi telephones.
