KISTA, Sweden and SAN FRANCISCO -- OptiMobile AB, a company within the field of seamless convergence of WiFi and cellular telephony, has licensed VoIP technology from Global IP Sound (GIPS), a leading provider of embedded voice-processing solutions for the Voice over IP market, to enable its patent-pending WBX™ wireless VoIP technology.

OptiMobile will integrate GIPS VoiceEngine Mobile into WBX, an innovative technology which guarantees automatic and seamless handover of ongoing voice calls between WiFi (VoIP over WLAN) and cellular networks. Virtual operators (ISP, MVNO, and hosting providers) can provide WBX™ enabled services to enterprises, municipal organizations and homes.

Hermansen, President and CEO of Global IP Sound. "OptiMobile's WBX technology addresses the demand for a reliable bridge between WiFi and cellular networks.
