We are pleased to partner with NTT DATA to drive further market penetration for open networking, said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion. It’s great to be working with NTT DATA, a trusted global innovator for business IT solutions, which clearly understands the powerful potential of network disaggregation. We are proud to be furthering TIP’s ideals for expanding open networks and paving the way for a connected future.
Along with this partnership with NTT DATA, IP Infusion continues to receive acclaim for its products and services. This spring, leading independent global provider of technology industry insights GigaOm designated IP Infusion as Leader and Outperformer for the third consecutive year in all three of its 2023 Network Operating System Radar Reports. The IP Infusion software platform was identified as the most complete of the more than 20 NOS vendors GigaOm analysts evaluated, outperforming incumbent providers including Cisco and Juniper.
In addition, TIP recognized IP Infusion’s Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway (DCSG) solution with the TIP Validated Solution Gold Badge in 2022.

Spectralink, the leading provider of international enterprise mobility solutions, launches a new family of enterprise-grade wireless handsets designed to meet the needs of deskless mobile workers: the Spectralink S Series. The new handsets, an exciting addition to our DECT product portfolio, are comprised of three models. When paired with our Spectralink (IP-) DECT infrastructure, the innovative new handsets complete a wireless calling solution that is fully interoperable and easy to integrate with alarms, messaging and business telephony platforms (such as Microsoft Teams, Cisco, ZoomPhone, RingCentral, Dstny and Avaya), delivering crystal clear voice quality.
The durable design is combined with a secure platform responding to the requirements of users in the industrial, retail, hospitality, and healthcare segments. The S Series handsets simplify the Spectralink portfolio moving to 3 global models: S33, S35, S37. The three new devices share a set of common accessories including chargers and belt clips, simplifying processes at purchasing, as well as deployment stages. The Spectralink S Series provides full compatibility with the Spectralink AMIE® (Advanced Mobile Intelligence for Enterprise) platform which enables the centralised management of overall Spectralink IP-DECT infrastructure.
Modern-day workers have become accustomed to engaging graphics with intuitive icon-driven navigation, so they expect the same user-experience from their work tools. The new handsets combine a sleek, contemporary colour display with Spectralink's trademark robust design, suited to even the toughest working conditions. In addition to this, the handsets offer crystal-clear voice quality with best-in-class noise-cancellation technology, safeguarding the integrity of critical communications even in loud production environments that tend to drown-out voice on single microphone devices. The rugged design is also able to withstand dust particles, water or chemical detergents, where handsets are regularly exposed to these external agents.
Because frontline workers have to remain connected in challenging conditions, Spectralink has developed the S Series to consistently put best-in-class communication into the palm of workers' hands, protecting their personal safety as well as their productivity. The S Series provides lone workers, such as engineers taking readings in remote or dangerous areas of a production site, security workers and night guards, with a full range of built-in safety features. The handsets in fact offer a number of protection tools ranging from red alarm buttons to alarm icons, from pull-cords to automatic motion detection.
Finally, devices come equipped with a full range of productivity enhancing benefits such as integration with Microsoft Teams, Bluetooth 5.1 support to enable headsets or other accessories, programmable side-key as well as messaging capabilities.
"The new handsets add to our industry leading DECT solutions, confirming Spectralink's commitment to innovation. We provide our customers with the most durable mobile infrastructure for business-critical communication, collaboration, and worker safety," declares Doug Werking, CEO at Spectralink Corporation. "The new handsets enable excellence by empowering mobile workforces, but, more importantly, they introduce the most innovative DECT device family in the global market designed to provide modern user experience and future-proof investment for new innovation."
As an award winner in mobile technology, Spectralink has been transforming the way our customers work and communicate for almost 30 years. Through our determination to do extraordinary things, we enable mobile workforces and empower our customers and partners to explore what's next, what's possible. With our enterprise grade, best-in-class mobile solutions, we are with our customers wherever they work, however they need us. Our people, commitment to innovation and our passion are our foundation for success.

TOMIA, the market leader in roaming and interconnect monetization solutions, and Cumucore, the leading non-public network provider, announce the successful completion of the integration of their respective SEPPs (Security Edge Protection Proxy) to enable secure 5G Standalone (SA) roaming connectivity. This is the first record of successful 5G SA roaming connectivity with SEPP through different vendors. This milestone is a step forward in enabling 5G SA roaming and emerging services focused on enhanced Quality of Service (QoS) for the mobile operator community and private networks.
By combining TOMIA's roaming optimization expertise and Cumucore's comprehensive connectivity solutions, this partnership presents an opportunity for the two vendors to test the functionality of the new built-in 5G security mechanisms in different roaming scenarios. TOMIA and Cumucore conducted a Proof of Concept (PoC) to validate their SEPP interoperability according to 3GPP guidelines from dedicated fully virtualized 5G packet core networks.
Ilana Tidhar, TOMIA's Network Products Director, said, "Achieving the first 5G SA Roaming integration using SEPPs from different vendors leaves a significant mark in the industry. SEPP is a crucial function of 5G Roaming, not only for ensuring secure communications, but also for adding value to the roaming business. SEPP facilitates innovative use cases related to user experience, quality assurance, cost optimization, and beyond."
"These successful results represent a clear benefit to our enterprise customers who seek to deploy a non-public 5G network. Mobility between public and private networks is crucial for many verticals, such as logistics and supply chains, nationally or internationally. SEPP communication is required to make it happen," commented Mika Skarp, Senior Product Manager at Cumucore.
TOMIA creates innovative Roaming and Interconnect solutions for operators worldwide. It constantly evolves its products and integrates new technologies – such as VoLTE, 5G, IoT, BCE, A2P, and Cloud Numbers – to enable operators to embrace what's next. TOMIA forges meaningful relationships with its customers and allows them to do the same with their partners. TOMIA helps simplify increasing complexity. From agile trading solutions to automated billing and settlement, their market-leading products cover the entire wholesale agreement lifecycle. TOMIA has been partnering with hundreds of global operators for over 25 years. To learn more, visit www.tomiaglobal.com
