Motorola and Cisco have teamed up to develop voice solutions that will work seamlessly across fixed and wireless Ethernet and cellular networks. As part of the deal Motorola will develop dual-mode 802.11 VoIP/GSM phones.

Motorola and Cisco are working together on solution development and go-to-market plans and aims to make the dual mode solution available in early 2006.

The vendors say that blending the features and benefits of mobile cellular, 802.11 wireless and enterprise fixed networks bridges physical and virtual-office environments to enable anytime, anywhere communications for mobile business professionals.

“Motorola is strengthening and expanding its enterprise offerings by developing strategic business relationships with leading companies like Cisco to help create a complete solutions portfolio,” says Greg Brown, president of Motorola’s Government and Enterprise Mobility Solutions business.

“Cisco is a world-class IP communications and WLAN infrastructure company and we’re pleased to add them to our ecosystem of strategic relationships,” he adds.

The Motorola and Cisco solution will operate using 802.11 technology inside the enterprise and cellular telephony elsewhere, with a seamless hand-off of communications between networks. The solution will be available as an extension to the Cisco CallManager and will use a standards-based interface.
