ABSTRACT
The article reports that Convergin Inc. is offering carrier software that could help speed mixed cellular/Wi-Fi phone services that can save businesses money and support multimedia services. Called Accolade, the software runs on a server in carrier networks and translates signals between legacy wireless networks and networks supported by Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), which tells networks where customers can be reached. This enables carriers to deliver calls to customers based on where they are rather than by simply calling a number. The advantage of this is that using the Wi-Fi network is less expensive than paying for cellular minutes, and the use of SIP allows companies to add other communications methods such as instant messaging and e-mail.
