Wed, 10/17/2007 - 6:31am
Motorola presented a mobile WiMAX experience that included live handoffs during an exclusive cruise along the Chicago River for media and industry analysts in town to attend WiMAX World USA. Attendees experienced uninterrupted mobile applications including web browsing, voice over IP (VoIP) calls, video streaming and MobiTV while moving past access point sites along the route of the cruise. In addition to the cruise, Motorola has successfully demonstrated several of these applications on streets along the Chicago River while driving at speeds beyond 50 mph and while riding Chicago’s famed elevated train. These demonstrations are another step in achieving an all IP wireless mobile network that is capable of supporting VoIP, data and video.
