Calypso Wireless, Inc. announced today that Servinova Cisco Systems registered partner company, has started the network testing using Cisco Aironet Access Point with Calypso dual mode C1250i, Wi-Fi/GSM-GPRS VoIP cellular phone.
"Servinova, a Cisco Systems registered partner company, has started the network testing using Cisco Aironet Access Point and Calypso C1250i Wi-Fi-GSM-GPRS VoIP cellular phones. Innovations such as the Calypso ASNAP(tm) patented technology will increase the sales of our Aironet Access Point," says Milton Campuzano, President of Servinova.
Calypso Wireless' ASNAP(tm) patented technology enables mobile users to seamlessly switch back and forth between cellular networks such as GSM or CDMA, and Wi-Fi wireless local area networks (WLAN) utilizing the 802.11 standard. Mobile users using Calypso's ASNAP(tm) C1250i cellular phones will be able to access any Wi-Fi zones installed and access the Internet at broadband speeds of up to 11,000 Kbps per second (11 Mbps), enabling broadband connectivity on Calypso's C1250i dual band Wi-Fi-GSM-GPRS VoIP cellular phone.
"We are proud to see our Calypso dual mode C1250i cellular phone being tested with Cisco Aironet Access Points. Offices, homes and enterprises will be able to save money when making VoIP calls over the Aironet or any other Wireless LAN or switch over to the Mobile network when outside of Wireless LAN area," says Alfredo Sarrazin, Vice President of Sales of Calypso Wireless Inc.
Calypso's patented technology piqued the interest of many mobile carriers by demonstrating its ASNAP(tm) technology which could also provide significant savings to mobile carriers in additional frequency spectrum and infrastructure equipment by offloading capacity to the Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) and IP networks, while providing additional sources of revenues providing new services such as real time two-way video conferencing, fast Internet connection and VoIP.
The C1250i's browser can be used both inside and outside the WLAN; users always have access to the Internet. Instant messaging between C1250i handsets on a wireless LAN is also possible. The handset's battery last for VoIP calls about 4 hours. The Calypso C1250i comes with headphones (mini stereo jack), a cradle with USB ActiveSync Cable and AC adapter.
Calypso's patented ASNAP(tm) technology will enable the cellular phones to automatically detect any available Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and then seamlessly switch between the signals of a standard cellular link tower and an available short-range broadband network, such as cable or DSL with Wi-Fi, accelerating wireless broadband deployment, thereby creating a platform for revenue sharing between the synergistic companies and increased revenues for them by delivering new added services and it could also provide significant savings to mobile carriers in additional frequency spectrum and infrastructure equipment, by offloading capacity to the Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) and IP networks while providing additional sources of revenue. The integration of ASNAP(tm) technology will enable greatly enhanced services such as broadband connectivity, real time two-way video conferencing, VoIP and network-based gaming applications via Calypso's cellular phones, PDA's (Personal Digital Assistance) or any mobile device powered with the company's ASNAP(tm) technology. The patent has also given Calypso the rights to offer license agreements to major mobile and ISP carriers as well as to cellular phones manufacturers and OEM's. Calypso has also built upon its patented ASNAP(tm) technology to create a new technology that could provide 'the' solution that allows satellite radio signals from carriers such as XM Satellite Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio to be readily received by all types of mobile wireless devices, thus generating a new potential revenue stream for both the satellite radio companies and the companies supplying service to mobile phones and devices and the manufacturers and retailers of those devices, as well for the licensing of this technology by Calypso.
