MobileIGNITE Announces Release v1.0 of Functional Specification for Fixed Mobile Convergence Handover

Developed by the Handover Interoperability Group of MobileIGNITE, the Functional Specification will allow an FMC Service Provider to specify Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) based technology from vendors that allows a user with a dual-mode cellular/Wi-Fi mobile phone to be able to connect via both Wi-Fi (fixed) and GSM/UMTS (mobile) access networks. The user will receive the same voice services using a single phone number as the user crosses networks – including the seamless continuity of an in-process voice call.
