SAN JOSE, CA, February 21, 2011 - Jungo Ltd, a leading provider of embedded, software connectivity solutions, has announced the immediate availability of support for the new Mobile Broadband Interface Model (MBIM) specification Published by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) in November 2011, the MBIM V1.0 specification is a USB-based protocol for host and device connectivity for desktops, laptops, tablets and mobile devices.
The specification supports multiple generations of GSM- and CDMA-based 3G and 4G packet data services, including the recent LTE technology. With support for multiple IP connections per single USB interface, CID and UUID command transfer, device-agnostic mobile broadband class drivers and a standard control protocol, in place of the ubiquitous but non-standard "AT" command set, MBIM facilitates high bandwidth connectivity for USB modem dongles, embedded USB modems and 3G routers.
The Jungo MBIM solution is based on USBware, the company's established embedded USB device stack, and DriverCore, its complete USB CDC solution of production-grade desktop driver stacks. The implementation includes support for both legacy and next-generation desktop operating systems including integration with Windows 7 and Windows 8 WWAN implementation of NDIS 6.2 and NDIS 6.30.
Jungo was an active participant in the development of MBIM, alongside platform silicon vendors (Qualcomm, Intel, ST-Ericsson), OEMs (Nokia, NEC Casio, Ericsson), and software vendors (Microsoft). "Jungo is excited to add the MBIM specification to its wide range of connectivity solutions," said Jungo Connectivity General Manager Ophir Herbst. "Our full MBIM stack will empower mobile broadband chipset manufacturers in delivering more and better functionality for consumers."
It's a shame Jumbo the lumbering elephant encumbered by the Cisco bureacracy don't have any contracts for their MBIM drivers while SMSI has announced one signed cntract. The signed contract is almost certainly with one of the chip manufacturer active participants in the development of the MBIM specification i.e.
although Broadcom was also mentioned at Needham.
Won't the mental mango be sent over the edge if its QCOM!! The mental mango has been posting about QCOM's chips for months if not years. Now QCOM may be a customer of SMSIs handing over huge amounts of dollars for the MBIM drivers. Let's hope they tell us at the CC in a couple of weeks time!
Jungo's integration of Pandora Radio for Hyundai Mobis to be available in cars sold in the US from 2013
DETROIT, MICHIGAN, OCTOBER 16, 2012 - Jungo, now part of Cisco, a leading supplier of automotive multimedia middleware and connectivity solutions, has been selected by Hyundai Mobis, an affiliate of the Hyundai Motor Company, to provide an infotainment middleware solution for new automobiles sold in the US market from 2013.
Jungo will provide a certified middleware implementation that supports various types of infotainment systems from Hyundai Mobis and numerous car models. The functionality of existing infotainment systems will be upgraded to enable head unit playing and control of Pandora Radio from devices connected over USB.
A key feature of the Jungo middleware for Hyundai Mobis will be support for Pandora Radio played on the iPhone. Pandora support is a prominent, pre-integrated feature of the middleware thanks to an existing partnership between Jungo and Pandora.
