Phone Units Join in Effort for Seamless Wireless Net

Phone Units Join in Effort for Seamless Wireless Net "Motorola, Proxim and Avaya are expected to announce today that they will jointly develop technology to allow wireless communications to jump between networks without interruption.
If the three companies are successful, an executive could begin downloading data using a wireless hub in a Starbucks, airport or other public site and move to a company office without interrupting the transfer. Similarly, a phone call that began over a company's internal voice-over-Internet network could move to a public carrier as the user of the cellphone left the building."
This will be wonderful -- if and only if they don't play silly licensing/subscription games.
