Turk Telekom’s WIROFON service won the CommsMEA “New Telecom Service of the Year” award which is given to an operator for a particularly innovative or successful service that has been launched in the last year.
The award-winning service is running on Argela’s patented technology innovation – Convergence Gateway.
WIROFON is a wireless service that enables Turk Telekom customers to make calls from their dual-mode handsets with the Wi-Fi support feature irrespective of their location, and also in the absence of a SIM card in the handset.
In addition to dual mode handsets, this service is available on a PC and any SIP based phone.
Accessible through the Internet, it provides the users with quite cheaper tariffs and enables them to stay connected, even if they are abroad.
The technology behind this service is Argela’s Convergence Gateway.
It removes the boundaries of telecom by helping network operators expand their market beyond their geographical area and allowing them to launch new, innovative, revenue-generating services.
Convergence Gateway enables wireless and wireline operators to extend their voice and other traditional services.
Argela will be exhibiting at Mobile World Congress – Hall1-C13 in Barcelona on February 15-18, 2010 and demonstrating WIROFON and other future-proof telecom solutions
