NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire -02/21/12)- AirTouch Communications, Inc. (OTC.BB: ATCH.OB - News) (www.airtouchinc.com), which designs and markets wireless telecommunications devices today announced that it has selected Advus Corporation to develop a number of high-volume software applications and services for their Android-based product line. The project will be led by Advus Corporation's CEO Marcelo Sant'Anna who has been helping Fortune 500 companies transform core business functions through the use of advanced analytics, metrics and software innovation for over 18 years.
Android has been selected as the operating system for AirTouch phones and the company's triple play strategy for providing consumers and businesses worldwide with wireless voice, data, and entertainment on one piece of hardware over the cellular network.
AirTouch CEO Hide Kanakubo said, "Our objective is to provide one piece of hardware to consumers on a global scale that can provide voice, internet, and video. Our device will enable customers who use our hardware to also purchase our software services that can be enjoyed not only in the U.S. but also in the BRIC and Next 11 countries where wireless infrastructure is available. We believe that Advus, under the leadership of Marcelo Sant'Anna will develop outstanding, unique software services for our Android-based product line."
Advus CEO Marcelo Sant'Anna commented, "Android makes the most sense for AirTouch as it is one of the most used operating systems around the world, which is why Advus encouraged AirTouch to use the highly extensible operating system as its platform for growth. We look forward to working with the AirTouch engineers in developing software applications that will enhance the value of their products."
The AirTouch HomeConneX® X2000 will likely be the first AirTouch product to employ software developed by Advus. The X2000, which will be available with either a standard cordless handset or an Android-based handset, is scheduled to be introduced later this year.
By combining strategy, technology and business architecture Marcelo Sant'Anna has provided organizations with better insight and increased productivity. By applying process and financial metrics, Mr. Sant'Anna has quantified improvements in resource utilization, technology adoption and business impact of investments. Advus clients include IBM, JPMorgan Chase, Bank Itau, Software AG, SAP, Alstom, Siemens, Alcatel, Telefonica, NASA, University of Texas, Georgia Institute of Technology and University of Waterloo.
Mr. Sant'Anna has a Doctorate of Science in Software Engineering with Economics and a BS in Computer Engineering from Pontifical Catholic University of Rio, Brazil; Post-graduate Studies at MIT, Sloan School of Management (Executive Economics) and was awarded International Research - Association for Computer Machinery.
