VCC is (still) for fixed line operators

NXTComm, the former “Supercomm” tradeshow geared towards fixed line operators in the US, wrapped up last week in Chicago. Frankly the VCC world has been pretty quiet of late, but there were three VCC related announcements at NXTComm:
  • Aepona is aiming its Voice Call Continuity (VCC) product for service provider OSS and BSS back-office systems integration, offering scalability, service interaction and intelligent rating and charging.
  • NewStep Networks and fg microtec, announced that their joint efforts to enable Nokia handsets to interoperate with multimedia applications for 2.5G, 3G and WLAN mobile phones, has led to field trials with major service providers. NewStep also announced that is had completed interoperability certification for Paragon’s latest GSM/VoWLAN dual-mode handset.
  • Aricent launched the company’s first VCC server solution, the Aricent Service Continuity Server (SCS).

I guess companies were saving up the news for a fixed-line tradeshow. This just serves to reinforce the message: VCC is a technology for fixed operators.
