Softil, the leading enabler of IP communications solutions for mission-critical telecommunications products and services, announced today a licensing agreement with New Zealand-based Tait Communications that will allow its TAIT AXIOM® portfolio of broadband solutions to interoperate with all major systems around the world using Softil’s BEEHD MCX client framework.
“Enabling our TAIT AXIOM Wearable and Mobile devices with the Softil client ensures standards compliant delivery of high-quality audio and video over the LTE and 5G systems our customers are using today,” said Dr. Yoram Benit, CEO of Tait Communications. “Companies count on us to protect their investment in Tait by operating in an open standards environment, and our agreement with Softil is allowing us to do so with these devices.”
Softil’s BEEHD is a 3GPP MCX Release 16 standard-compliant cross-platform framework (SDK), designed for developers and manufacturers of handheld devices, MCX/LMR gateways, dispatch consoles, recording solutions and train/metro communication equipment. The framework supports a comprehensive set of protocols defined by standardization bodies such as 3GPP and utilized by Mission Critical Communications over LTE and 5G solutions.
“In the fast developing MCX world, we know that speed to market is paramount for critical communications solutions providers like Tait,” said Pierre Hagendorf, CEO of Softil. “We’re delighted to team with Tait Communications and provide a platform that will significantly reduce development, integration and testing efforts as they expand their broadband portfolio and make it available to their customers.”
