Intel to power new Windows CE VOIP devices by NEC Infrontia

NEC Infrontia Corp. has announced plans to develop wireless IP telephones based on Microsoft Windows CE operating system. The plan was announced today with the technical cooperation of Microsoft Corp. and Intel Corporation, at the Spring 2004 Voice on the Net (VON) Trade Show & Expo in Santa Clara, Calif.

NEC Infrontia’s wireless IP telephone will run Windows CE, Microsoft’s advanced real-time operating system, and will operate on a new innovative hardware platform from Intel. The new IP phones will enable enterprise customers to make calls on wireless local area networks, and will be increasingly integrated with popular desktop and server applications.

“The Windows CE platform allows us to offer premium features such as instant messaging, alerts and multimedia services to our customers and end users,” said Toshio Kita, associate senior vice president of i-communication systems group at NEC Infrontia. “The Intel hardware platform contains wireless technologies enabling our upcoming IP phones to process high-speed operations from anywhere through the Internet.”

NEC Infrontia has been cooperating with Microsoft to deliver IT communications systems and terminals across various markets. The companies expect to deliver a product to market sometime in late 2004 or early 2005.

“NEC Infrontia, Intel, and Microsoft share a common vision for delivering the next generation of VoIP-enabled devices,” said Mr. Scott Horn, director of the embedded devices group at Microsoft Corp. “Together we are cooperating to develop advanced, feature-rich and easy-to-use Wi-Fi phones.”
