Short-Term Solution for 3G networks in Linux: umtsmon

Klaas van Gend (klaas.van.gend@mvista.com)

umtsmon was created to have a GUI app to handle connections through a mobile network GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSPA or CDMA, EV-DO networks. For laptops, there are special PCMCIA cards that can do that; most mid- or high-end mobile phones can do this through USB or Bluetooth as well. To manage such a connection, one needs special software it works differently from a regular phone dial up, Wifi or Ethernet connection.

 

In this talk, Klaas van Gend will discuss the history and future of mobile networks in general, how the various brands of PCCards work and what the limitations of the umtsmon approach are (being a non-integrated, separate application). Klaas will also discuss future plans, like integration into NetworkManager.
