XO Communications and Sotto wireless announced a trial of a fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) solution for businesses in Seattle. The XO-Sotto FMC solution, called Unwired Office, combines XO's nationwide IP networking capabilities with Sotto's all-in-one wireless and office phone communications service to offer an integrated fixed and wireless service on a single platform with one smartphone that can be used in the office or outside of it for voice, email and Internet access as well as optional IP desk phones.
The service uses dual-mode smartphones from Nokia, such as the Nokia E61i, that feature both office WiFi and cellular network connectivity options, full keyboards, and productivity applications. The hybrid wireless capabilities allow employees to use the Nokia smartphones to make calls over WiFi networks and use cellular networks when employees are away from the office.
