Broadcom Offers Wi-Fi Phone Reference Design

Broadcom has enhanced its Wi-Fi phone reference platform with new SecureEasySetup software for helping consumers install their wireless IP phones "at the touch of a button." The phone automatically connects to the wireless network and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security activates. Linksys and HP have announced support for SecureEasySetup software, which will soon be featured in Linksys wireless LAN equipment, select HP notebooks and future HP-networked printers. Broadcom said additional equipment vendors plan to integrate SecureEasySetup software into a wide variety of peripheral devices and consumer electronics ranging from notebook PCs, wireless routers and broadband modems.

"The convergence of VoIP and wireless LAN technology enables a new realm of consumer products that enhance our lives including Wi-Fi Phones that offer enhanced voice and data experiences such as sharing images, video, music and security monitoring," said Patrick Sullivan, Vice President and General Manager of Broadcom's VoIP Business Unit.
