Thursday, 24 October 2002

Ericsson chooses Agere and Proxim to jointly develop and supply telecom operators with complete end-to-end solutions for WLAN (Wi-Fi) access, integrating hot spot access with mobile 2G and 3G networks.

Local access to high-speed data (called WLAN or Wi-Fi) is an increasingly important service for users of handheld devices like laptops and notebook computers.

Ericsson believes that integrating indoor and Public WLAN "Wi-Fi hotspots" with mobile 2G and 3G networks is a winning business concept for the future.

The new partnership brings new benefits to both operators and end-users. Ericsson's Mobile Operator WLAN enables operators to integrate WLAN with their existing 2G and 3G mobile business, reusing investments made in core infrastructure, subscriber management, billing and authentication.
