BridgePort pushes the ease-of-handoff, ease-of-reachability ball forward

 BridgePort Networks made two very interesting announcements at CTIA. First, they are collaborating with handset maker Kyocera and Wi-Fi hotspot access provider Boingo to enable a CDMA-Wi-Fi handset with integrated Boingo Wi-Fi access.

BridgePort Networks made two very interesting announcements at CTIA.

First, they are collaborating with handset maker Kyocera and Wi-Fi hotspot access provider Boingo to enable a CDMA-Wi-Fi handset with integrated Boingo Wi-Fi access.

Such solutions are all about a one-device ease of handoff, and in the case of the Boingo integration, eliminating the need for the user to seek, and then get on to, a Wi-Fi network.

BridgePort also showed a MobileSTICK solution, that enables users to use their mobile phone numbers to place or receive calls from their PC or laptop. The MobileSTICK application is contained in a USB key, houses an embedded SIM card, and can be branded by the service provider.

The key to me here is mobile, single-identity reachablility,without worrying about separate landline or VoIP numbers.
