Synchronoss Partners with Xandros to Deliver First Grab-and-Go 3G/4G Wireless Activation for Netbooks
The ConvergenceNow(R) Plus± platform's On-Device Activation Wizard(TM) integrates its embedded activation functionality directly within Xandros' netbook software solutions, enabling a wizard-driven 'grab-and-go' network activation experience. By including the embedded activation wizard as a component of netbooks that use the Xandros operating system and application stack, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and original device manufacturers (ODMs) can provide the capability to instantly create and access new 3G and 4G wireless accounts with any available carrier. The combined solution provides a convenient and consistent way for any netbook OEM/ODM to automate wireless order and fulfillment processes, which typically are manual and complex.
"The industry is rapidly moving towards a next generation mobility marketplace," said Daniel Rizer, Executive Vice President of Business Development, Synchronoss Technologies. "Emerging devices such as netbooks are gaining adoption by consumers for a variety of reasons--low costs, size, portability--but more importantly due to the demand for simplified access to their broadband-enabled resources. Together with Xandros, we are simplifying and accelerating the activation process for the customer while reducing the subscriber management complexities for the CSPs and OEMs."
The joint solution removes the need for retailers to handle the netbook wireless activation process, creating an enhanced user-driven customer experience. A single source for complete subscriber account management, the Synchronoss and Xandros solution allows customers to activate 3G and 4G wireless services and devices instantly, while providing the service providers and OEMs with end-to-end real time visibility into the process.
"We are delighted to partner with Synchronoss to deliver grab-and-go wireless carrier activation for netbooks. Our joint solution opens exciting new marketing opportunities for carriers, OEMs, and retailers who want to offer custom branded netbooks with online products and services, while making it easy for end users to get online anytime, anywhere," said Andreas Typaldos, Xandros CEO.
