The article focuses on developments related to cellular telephone services. For residences, service providers provide handsets which offer seamless service without the expense of additional base stations. In the case of enterprises, multimode handsets can reduce costs by providing another connection option for voice and data. Regardless of the approach, service providers are interested in the deployment of fixed-mobile convergence strategies. An example if the Bluephone handsets of British Telecom, which routes calls over Bluetooth to a hub connected to the wireline network. These issues highlight the value of handset designs that minimize integration-related problems such as being transferred between networks through extensive interoperability testing.
