Whitepaper looks at cellular modem abstraction under Linux

Dec 15, 2006 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 1 views

This whitepaper discusses telephony server middleware aimed at de-coupling cellular modems from mobile phone operating systems. It was written by Blane E. Rockafellow, who co-founded TapRoot Systems, a telephony server specialist that has partnered with Microsoft, MontaVista, Trolltech, and Symbian.

Symbian and Windows Mobile have built-in telephony servers, Rockafellow notes. He believes that as Linux moves from “oddity” to a “real wave of the future” in the mobile phone market, telephony server middleware will help phone designers create software stacks capable of migrating easily from 2.5G to 4G phone designs.
