Insignia Showcases Cell Phone Software for Over-the-Air Repair

2/9/2004 - Insignia Solutions® (Nasdaq: INSG), announced that it will be demonstrating with Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) an implementation of its Secure System Provisioning product on Symbian OSTM-based phones that take advantage of the TI OMAPTM processor platform and SymbianTM operating system. Insignia will be showing a server console that enables operators to target specific devices or populations of devices on the network, managing complex chains of images and creating powerful scheduling rules and requests. Insignia Secure System Provisioning (SSP) then securely pushes firmware updates or upgrades over-the-air based on customer care incidents or request for new mobile services. Insignia will be demonstrating at 3GSM World Congress, Cannes, France, February 23 and 24, in Hall 2, Booth G20.

Insignia's demonstration on production phones highlights Insignia's product flexibility and seamless adaptability to a variety of device types on a particular network.

"Insignia is solving critical challenges for mobile operators and device manufacturers leveraging the TI OMAP platform," said Paul Werp, worldwide marketing director for TI's OMAP platform.
