Vonage to offer Wireless VoIP

Vonage is jumping on the bandwagon of wireless VoIP -- a bandwagon filling up rapidly. Skype is working on a wireless handset, and companies let it be known that they would soon be offering products for this market. There is every reason to believe that Vonage, a pioneer among independent providers of VoIP, would be offering a good product at a reasonable price. Reports in the press say that Vonage's customers are testing both wireless handsets for VoIP and wireless routers from Cisco's Linksys.

A combination of WiFi and VoIP may pose a serious challenge to cellular networks, and Vonage already tested a WiFi service with Boingo. In the current iteration, Vonage is testing hardware and software which solve issues of authentication and voice quality. Earlier this month Vonage closed some $200 million in venture funding.
