VeriSign Develops Wireless IP Connect Service Bridging Mobile and WiFi Networks

VeriSign is introducing a "Wireless IP Connect Service" providing a single, cellular-WiFi interconnection point that resolves interoperability issues between disparate networks and facilitates the delivery of end-to-end, next-generation features. The service allows cellular handsets to register as IP devices when near a Wi-Fi signal, thus enabling consumer to make and receive cost-effective VoIP calls.
