Roam Where You Want To! New Motorola Technologies Break the Barrier Between Home and Wireless Phone Services - Jan 3, 2006 08:00 AM (PR Newswire)
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) today broke down the barrier between traditional home and wireless phone service. The innovative new Motorola Residential Seamless Mobility Gateway (RSG) lets consumers use the same mobile device -- and the same number -- as they roam in and out of their homes(1).
Creating an Innovative Home Communications Experience
The Motorola RSG family of products packs powerful communication features for your home. The product includes an 802.11b/g wireless access point, a four-port router, and a built-in Voice-over-IP adapter. This technology allows the RSG to run your home network, power standard telephones, and act as a hotspot for your mobile phone.
Further, the Motorola RSG can seamlessly transfer voice calls between the home wireless network (WLAN) and the cellular network without interrupting the call, when paired with a dual-mode handset (DMH) and connected to a network and service that supports this feature. Dual-mode handsets are mobile devices that can access both cellular and in-home wireless networks.
Motorola RSG products give consumers freedom for personal communications: The products eliminate the hassle of finding a good reception zone in the home, and of managing separate bills, individual calling plans, or "bonus" minutes. Consumers can simply dial a number, and the intelligence in the gateway will automatically route the call to the best available network or service option.
Motorola is showcasing the RSG series of products this week at the2006 International CES trade show (Las Vegas, NV), Central Hall, Booth #8545.
Additional features of the Motorola RSG Series include:
-- Single-Number Access - Calls made from a dual-mode mobile handset in the home enable consumers to reduce cellular bills. -- Home Network Connectivity - Access your high-speed data connection from anywhere in the home with an 802.11 b/g wireless access point and a four-port wired router.
