Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) technology has taken one step forward with Sweden’s Ascom Wireless Solutions and Motorola Solutions conducting joint testing on Motorola’s wireless LAN (WLAN) architecture and Ascom´s handsets for better voice quality, interoperability and scalability.

With Ascom Wireless Solutions as a certified Motorola Wireless Network Solutions Partner, the joint certification process helps ensure interoperability between the Ascom i62, VoWiFi handset to operate on 802.11n networks, and Motorola’s WiNG5 wireless LAN network architecture. The Ascom i62 reportedly is one of the first-ever VoWiFi handsets that can operate on 802.11n networks.

Initial target markets include healthcare and retail.

Notes Henrik Sandberg, product manager at Ascom Wireless Solutions, “The dynamic duo of the Ascom i62 and Motorola’s WiNG 5 architecture will put staff members in firm control via seamlessly using VoWiFi throughout every part of their facility. Within the healthcare segment, where most of our customers are found, this means peace of mind for both staff and patients, knowing that every kind of assistance is never further away than the touch of a button.”
