Argela Named Gartner 'Cool Vendor' for Femtocell Technology

By David Sims, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Argela, a company that sells telecom tools for fixed and mobile operators, has been named a “Cool Vendor” by Gartner (News - Alert) for its femtocell technology in 2011.

The Gartner’s report, “Cool Vendors in Communications Service Provider Infrastructure 2011,” noted that Argela’s femtocell technology integrates several technologies in one device -- femtocell, IPTV (News - Alert), WiFi/DSL, SIP and ZigBee/Wireless HD.

Argela was one of five vendors included in Gartner’s report along with Astellia (France), Optenet (Spain), Bytemobile (News - Alert) (Silicon Valley) and SpiderCloud Wireless (Silicon Valley).

The report looks at companies that offers products to Communications Service Providers, concluding that CSPs need new services to offer end-users in order to compete with the ‘over-the-top applications’ being provided by Skype (News - Alert), Hulu and other companies.

Argela’s CEO, Bulent Kaytaz, said their technology is for operators, “who want to manage the exponential growth of mobile data traffic. When our latest innovations are added to our core femtocell technology, we are entering the arena of an automated-connected home with many value-added services for telecom subscribers.”

Last December, TMCnet reported that Argela announced that Ercan Yilmaz, Argela's VP of International Sales and Business Development, would be presenting how femtocell technology not only provides greater capacity and better coverage, but also enables operators and other communications providers to extend their offerings to provide more revenue-generating services and applications to their subscribers and customers.

Yilmaz presented ‘Beyond Capacity and Coverage: Femtocell (News - Alert) as a Service Enabler’, at Femtocell Americas 2010, which was held in Miami in mid-December.

Yilmaz has over 20 years experience in the ICT industry and supports Argela's international expansion strategy by identifying and driving targeted areas of growth and focusing on global customers, partners and strategic alliances.
