Nokia Tests Seamless Unlicensed Mobile Access



Nokia is field testing seamless roaming between mobile phone and wireless LAN networks, Reuters reports:

    Mobile subscribers with handsets enabled for so-called unlicensed mobile access, or UMA, can make calls over the Internet when they are in range of an unlicensed wireless network such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
    When they move out of range, the connection will automatically revert to a GSM, GPRS or UMTS mobile phone network.

This sort of technology has been in laboratory and field test for some time. In the new test, Nokia has deployed the technology for use by 50 families in Oulu, Finland.
