Company description

Kineto Wireless is the key innovator and leading supplier of FMC solutions for mobile operators.

Kineto is a privately held, venture-backed company whose fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) solutions are enabling mobile operators around the globe to leverage the tremendous cost and performance advantages of fixed broadband access networks. Kineto’s FMC solutions extend mobile voice, data and IMS service over broadband access networks, thereby enabling mobile operators to harness the power of the Internet to lower service delivery costs while improving service performance. Kineto's FMC solutions are employed by mobile operators and equipment vendors worldwide in dual-mode handset, femtocell, terminal adaptor and softmobile products and services.

THE CHALLENGE The mobile industry has been one of the world’s greatest success stories over the last century.  In less than 30 years, mobile handsets have become a mainstay of daily life for more than 3 billion people around the world.  Nonetheless, the industry's maturation presents fundamental business challenges for mobile operators.

Revenue Growth: As customer additions slow, mobile operators must continually identify new growth opportunities, as well as hold onto existing subscribers.  Without doubt, increasing mobile service use at home and office represents one of the largest growth opportunities for mobile operators. However, despite high interest from subscribers in wanting to use their mobile phone as their primary phone, the cost and performance challenges of mobile services have prevented operators from being able to capitalize on this tremendous opportunity.

Cost Control: With mobile data usage continuing its rapid climb, mobile operators are beginning to feel the strain on their macro networks.  In addition, with aggressive flat rate pricing for data services becoming the industry norm, the capital cost to add the needed capacity to their networks is no longer being offset by expected revenues
