Joint entry wins Global Telecoms Business Innovation award

Cambridge, 17 June 2009 – ip.access (www.ipaccess.com), the multi-award winning developer of picocell and femtocell solutions, and Blue Ocean Wireless, the world’s first global GSM provider for the deep sea merchant maritime sector, have won a Global Telecom Business Innovation Award for the wireless network infrastructure innovation category. The joint entry was named as a winner at the glittering Global Telecoms Business Innovation black tie awards ceremony last night in central London, in front of an audience of senior telecoms executives from around the world.

ip.access and Blue Ocean Wireless won the Award for Blue Ocean’s global service, which uses ip.access nanoGSM picocells on commercial ships to provide on-board 2G mobile phone connectivity to merchant seafarers. Using the cellular signal generated by the ip.access nanoGSM, crew members can use their own standard GSM phones to make and receive calls and SMS messages while away at sea.

“We are delighted to win this award for our work with Blue Ocean Wireless. The Blue Ocean service is a truly innovative solution that addresses the global challenge facing those at sea who want to communicate with home, easily and on their own mobile phone,” said Jamie Cave, VP sales EMEA as he accepted the award on behalf of ip.access at the Awards dinner. “Winning this award recognises the achievement of our two companies, and we look forward to continuing our work with Blue Ocean Wireless to develop and deliver new and exciting applications for this technology in the future.”

We were impressed by the quality and number of nominations this year — the most we have ever had — so it was a special triumph to be one of the winners this year. This was an outstanding project and well deserves its award, “said Alan Burkitt-Gray, editor of Global Telecoms Business. “The industry is seeing a wave of innovation which is making a huge difference — to the companies working in the industry and to all of us in business and as consumers. Congratulations to all the award winners.”
