SPOTLIGHT: Wireless VoIP's Sudden Surge

Victor Tsao, founder of WiFi networking firm Linksys, sees wireless VoIP as a hot technology; but he's surprised by how fast it has taken off. Tsao, currently Linksys' senior vice president and general manager, notes that his company shipped over 2 million VoIP ports between September and May. Tsao also reports that the Cisco Systems division is working on a next generation of wireless products based on the IEEE 802.11n standard, an emerging WiFi specification that promises to bring wireless speeds up to 135 Mbps. Tsao says he hopes that Linksys is the first company on the market with such products. He notes that Linksys is also developing WiMax products in the CPE (customer premise equipment) and bridge device spaces. Article
