PLEASANTON, Calif. -- Trapeze Networks™, the award-winning provider of the wireless LAN (WLAN) Mobility System™, today became the first WLAN infrastructure provider to demonstrate seamless mobility between a Wi-Fi and cellular network.

Trapeze and DiVitas Networks, a provider of unified mobility solutions for enterprise networks, teamed up to successfully demonstrate interoperability between each company’s wireless platforms over any dual-mode handset that supports Windows Mobile 05.

The companies successfully and repeatedly tested a voice-over-wireless application, handing off voice-over-wireless LAN calls from a Trapeze WLAN to the cellular network, for seamless roaming over the best available network.

“The first wireless LAN that Trapeze released three years ago was architected with the features necessary to deliver business-critical voice services over wireless,” said Dan Simone, CTO for Trapeze. “We have extended that very same architecture to deliver the Wi-Fi-to-cellular services that customers are demanding. This significant accomplishment represents the first step toward the fixed mobile convergence of these two technologies.”
