MobileInfo Comments and Advisory: Extending
Wi-Fi like connection to passenger trains and to limousines gives
busy executives an opportunity to stay connected to their offices.
This makes them more productive. What we would like to see is
seamless roaming between fixed line network, Wi-Fi hot spots and 3G
networks. Technology for this available from many vendors. What you
need are roaming agreements, single user interface and well-tested
network handoffs, without user doing a lot except the user clicking
to indicate his/her agreement to pay for the new service.
Inmotiontechnology is on the right track - may be on the right limo
to drive itself to the destination. We are afraid the final say will
be from the carriers.
