3 in Sweden and Denmark under the name Hi3G has selected DigitalRoute's MediationZone to support the launch of the company's WiFi-Calling service across the two countries' domestic markets.

With that, 3 will be the first operator in Sweden and Denmark to offer WiFi telephony "by default," with automatic connection to the wireless network when the mobile signal is weak. The service itself has no additional charge and is available to all customers with fixed price subscriptions.

According to DigitalRoute, it is delivering the "Entitlement" component, which involves the end-user being entitled to access specific functions from within the handset. DigitalRoute said that its MediationZone software supports 3's rapid launch of the new services by providing benefits including efficient integration with the other systems involved.

Nicholas Högberg, CEO of 3 Sweden
We know there are Swedes who have problems with their indoor coverage and therefore we have worked intensively with both technology vendors including DigitalRoute and handset manufacturers to launch WiFi-calling.

DigitalRoute CEO Johan Bergh
Our software's ability to converge functionality that includes aspects of traditional mediation with Policy Control and Usage Management in one horizontal solution underlines the growing value of DigitalRoute as a partner to the innovative service provider.
