The nascent voice-over-Wireless Fidelity market of 2004, offers mobility-hungry companies a growing array of pre-standard products, often backed by troika partnerships that the handset, wireless local area network infrastructure and Private Branch Exchange players are forming to piece together complete solutions. Voice over Wireless Fidelity or VoWLAN refers to the provisioning of IP voice services across 802.11-based wireless LANs. It is voice that is driving WLAN deployment, and a lengthening lineup of industry behemoths and innovative start-ups are clamoring for customers. Those ready to buy most sort through the value propositions that various vendor alliances bring to the table. INSET: VoWi-Fi vendor dance card.
