Sylantro & FirstHand solution

The combined Sylantro and FirstHand solutionn enables fixed line carriers to extend the services of their business and residential customers to their mobile devices transparently from any wireless carrier infrastructure (i.e. Home Location registers, wireless intelligent network services, etc.). As a result, fixed line carriers have a unique opportunity to provide their customers with a rich variety of value-added services as part of a fixed and mobile solution, consolidating the relationship with their users which reduces mobile churn and increases their top line contribution.


FirstHand mobile console - Synergy Synapps server

The FirstHand Mobile Console's network-aware, unified GUI and support for single-number calling consolidates both WiFi and cellular identities to provide a seamless end-user experience over both networks. The FirstHand Mobile Console utilizes the interfaces on the Synergy Synapps Server to allow users to access the same functionality from their Windows Mobile device as they currently enjoy on their desktop, including outbound calling from either the WiFi or cellular domain, leveraging their business phone services, caller ID based on their business number,  ad-hoc mobile conferencing, and more. They can access these services seamlessly in WiFi and cellular domains, as well as roam between enterprise WiFi, cellular, and WiFi networks.

"Users will be able to hold a conversation or conference call over their WiFi network and as they leave it, continue the call over their cellular network with no drop in the conversation.
