Vonage To Sell Wi-Fi Phones

Phones To Use Wi-Fi Instead Of Cellular Systems, Or Both

February 3, 2005

By Anne Eisenberg

Today people take laptops to wireless hot spots in coffee bars and airports to check their e-mail messages and to explore the Internet. Soon they may pack a new type of telephone and take it along, too, to make inexpensive calls using those wireless connections.

The phones are called voice over Internet protocol over Wi-Fi (or, simply, voice over Wi-Fi) handsets. Like conventional voice over Internet protocol, or VoIP, services, they digitize the voice and send it as data packets over the Internet. But they do it wirelessly, over an 802.11, or Wi-Fi, network.

And also like conventional VoIP, the technology may become popular with people who want to economize on their long-distance bills by using Wi-Fi connections when possible. "If you make a large number of calls, it could save money," said Philip Solis, a senior analyst at ABI Research in Oyster Bay, N.Y., and author of a report on prospects for the technology.

Wi-Fi handsets will soon be common on the consumer market, Mr. Solis said. "Probably we will see dual-use handsets that are cellphones as well as voice over Wi-Fi."

Vonage, a company that offers Voip service, will soon sell portable Wi-Fi handsets that people can use at public access points or on wireless networks in their homes and offices as an alternative to cordless phones. Vonage, which is based in Edison, N.J., expects to offer the handsets by midyear, its chief executive, Jeffrey Citron, said.

The price for the phone is not yet set, he said, "but it will cost something comparable to a cordless phone, between $75 and $100."

Vonage has 400,000 customers who use its Voip service, Mr. Citron said. Some programs offered by the company offer unlimited calling for a monthly fee of about $25. Customers with the service could use their wireless handsets to make additional calls at no cost at access points besides their homes. "Why not take your handset with you and make unlimited phone calls from other places?" he said.

Vonage is testing the handsets now, and will soon be conducting a larger trial, Mr. Citron said.

Dual mode handsets, which can use voice over Wi-Fi and cellular services, are also appearing, Mr. Solis of ABI said. These phones are designed to work as cellular handsets when, for example, people are driving, and then switch to a local area network as people enter a building and transfer from the cellular network to Wi-Fi.

Such dual mode phones have many advantages, said Martin Fichter, a vice president for product management and engineering at Siemens Communications, in San Diego. "We believe that voice over I.P. over Wi-Fi is a big growth field for the future," he said, in part because such calls would reduce traffic on cellular networks, saving money for carriers by delaying the need to build more cellular capacity. "The call is being connected through the Internet," he said, "so everyone wins."

Wi-Fi Internet telephony could also lower expenses for the office staff of a company. "If we set up a Wi-Fi connection in the office, our handsets could go through Wi-Fi and save money," he said.

The dual phones may also benefit consumers who have poor cellular reception where they live. "It's a way to leverage voice over I.P. to reach people in many homes in the U.S. where cellphone coverage is not optimal," Mr. Solis said. "If someone calls you on your cellular number, you can get connected by broadband inside the house." Then customers could move to cell coverage outside.

Motorola is developing a dual mode handset for business customers that will let users have one number for both cell and broadband handsets, said Bob Duerr, a director of product marketing for the company. "Call my extension and the phone will ring whether I'm at the desk or on the cell network," he said. The system should also be able to transfer calls seamlessly between the cellular and Wi-Fi networks.

Jane Glover, marketing manager for Motorola's development of the dual network system, said the company was in the final stages of testing and fine-tuning, and that the system was just about ready for business customers. The Motorola handset and supporting systems, developed with two other companies and offered for sale through one of them, Avaya, is not meant for public Wi-Fi access points, because of potential security issues.

Dan MacDonald, director of marketing for Nokia Enterprise Solutions in White Plains, N.Y., said the popularity of voice over Wi-Fi was just beginning.

And however awkward its name - Mr. MacDonald prefers voice over I.P. over wireless LAN - the technology will soon be widespread. "It's an absolute certainty in our minds that it will happen," he said. "In the future, literally every mobile device will have Wi-Fi capability in it."
