VoIP Reaches Out, Wirelessly

Voip Reaches Out, Wirelessly

March 30, 2004

By Sebastian Rupley

The talk at the VON (Voice On the Net) conference this week in Silicon Valley is not just about Voice over IP (VoIP) technology, but the coming convergence of Wi-Fi wireless LAN technology and Voip services. That melding is already leading to the development of new products and services, with many more expected later this year.

Voip is already in the middle of a major comeback, and most observers think that's because widespread broadband adoption and other more reliable high-data-rate technologies have finally made sound quality and ease of use good enough for phone calls placed over the Internet.

Voip is saving businesses and consumers money, and is also raising sticky issues, such as whether the Federal Communications Commission should levy tariffs on Voip players. According to Arizona research firm In-Stat/MDR, over 5 million people will subscribe to Voip services by 2007-five times more than there were in 2002, a trend which could represent a trouble spot for other kinds of telecommunications companies.

Vonage, Broadvox, and other companies have carved out niches offering unlimited or nearly unlimited calling plans to anywhere in the world for fees ranging from $25 to $40 a month.

There is some setup involved with their services. Each company provides customers with an analog telephone adapter (ATA), which they connect to their network routers and analog phones. There are alternatives to using your standard phone. Skype, from the creators of the Kazaa peer-to-peer service, offers free, PC-based Voip calling, which has been a hit with college students, among others.

But outside of specialized and expensive corporate solutions for doing Voip wirelessly, there haven't been a lot of wireless options for the technology. One of VoIP's next steps, says Jeff Williams, president of Broadvox Direct, who is in Silicon Valley for this week's conference, is to take advantage of Wi-Fi (wireless LAN) connections.

"We are looking at either OEMing or manufacturing a product that will be 802.11-based," he says, "so that if you have a wireless network in your home, our device-which might be a wireless base station itself--can be anywhere in the house, allowing you to place Voip calls. Part of the attraction of Voip should be mobility. Think of a traveler who could go to a hotel or airport that has wireless broadband and have what is essentially his home phone right there." Broadvox's Wi-Fi technology is expected later this year.

Wi-Fi-based Voip calling is already available for business use through products from companies such as SpectraLink and Cisco, but Joel Conover, principal analyst at Current Analysis, points out that "these gadgets all require thousands of dollars of packet-based infrastructure typically found on back-end systems in offices."

Conover expects to see more mobile phones arriving that marry Wi-Fi and Voip capabilities with inexpensive service plans. For example, Motorola has announced a smartphone, scheduled to ship by the second half of this year, which is expected to allow Voip calls when connected to a Wi-Fi network. There are also dual-mode portable phones coming that will switch between Wi-Fi and cellular networks.

Meanwhile, Vocera Communications recently introduced an entirely different spin on Wi-Fi and Voip convergence.

Inspired by the "com" badges worn by characters on Star Trek, the company has created Voip badge communicators which enable workers in a local facility to communicate with each other over a Wi-Fi network.

A worker can simply press a button on his or her badge, say the name of the worker he or she wants to communicate with, and, via a Texas Instruments digital signal processor chip, the communications are translated to bits and carried over the Wi-Fi network.

Several hospitals are already using Vocera's technology, and FCC Chairman Michael Powell recently praised the company at a National Press Club luncheon. "If you see voice more as an application, then your field of view opens appropriately wide to see its implications and potential to enhance our lives," he said.
