Motorola and Cisco working to develop dual-mode cellular/Wi-Fi solution
Posted on 27-Jul-2005 10:47 | Tags Filed under: News



Motorola, Inc. is joining forces with Cisco Systems to deliver a seamless enterprise mobility solution that will include Wireless Local Area Networking (WLAN) Internet Protocol (IP) telephony and cellular phone technologies based on the GSM standard.

The strategic alliance with Cisco is part of Motorola's overall strategy targeted at helping Enterprise and business customers solve the challenges associated with today's increasingly mobile and virtual workforce.

The Motorola and Cisco solution will operate using 802.11 technology inside the enterprise and cellular telephony elsewhere, with a seamless hand- off of communications between networks. The solution will be available as an extension to the Cisco CallManager IP-based communications system, utilizing a standards-based interface.

Motorola solution elements will include dual-mode devices and network mobility enabled by their Wireless Services Manager. Cisco will provide IP telephony and WLAN infrastructure. Motorola and Cisco plan to extend the initial solution offering to include additional Cisco CallManager features and deliver the Cisco IP Communications experience to enterprise workers whenever and wherever they are needed.

Motorola and Cisco are working together on both solution development and go-to-market plans to make this dual mode solution available in early 2006.
