ip.access to Demo iPhone "Virtual Fridge Notes" Application at Femtocell Applications Live

Femtocell-based service delivers Facebook reminders to iPhone 3G "Virtual Fridge" application

22 June 2009 – ip.access (www.ipaccess.com), the multi-award winning developer of picocell and femtocell solutions, today announced that it will demonstrate its new "Virtual Fridge Notes" application for the iPhone at tomorrow’s Femtocells World Summit. ip.access will first showcase the application during the Femtocell Applications Live session at the event.

The new application makes use of a femtocell’s ability to detect home presence, sending someone a reminder message as soon as he or she arrives home. ip.access’ "fridge notes" service works on any SMS capable handset, but the new iPhone version actually displays the messages on a virtual fridge, allowing the recipient to manage them just like real fridge notes. The message, which can be composed and sent using Facebook, can be unpeeled, moved to a corner of the fridge door, or removed altogether if the message is no longer relevant.

"Since the very early days, the industry has been discussing the potential for new applications based on the home presence information provided by a femtocell. The virtual fridge integrates the femtocell with two of the world’s most popular communication mediums – Facebook and the iPhone – to deliver a useful new service," says Stephen Mallinson, CEO at ip.access. "As the preferred communication hub for millions of people around the world, Facebook is the ideal place to leave reminder messages for friends, who can use the iPhone’s unique user interface to manage the important jobs they need to do at home."

The application also uses a femtocell’s home presence detection capability to automatically update a person’s Facebook status, meaning all their friends and family can see when they’ve arrived home.

ip.access has taken a strong lead in promoting femtocell services, and has helped to initiate the Femto Forum Services Special Interest Group (SIG), which seeks to foster a developer community to build femtocell services. It was also the first company to demonstrate femtocell-enabled connected home services, showcasing many different uses of femtocell technology in a home environment.
