RTX Telecom is moving ahead rapidly with product designs to kick-start the consumer wireless voice-over-IP (VoIP) market. It has also established a subsidiary, RTX America, to accelerate participation by the PC and telecommunications industries in the rapidly growing VoIP opportunity.
At the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) Wireless conference, here this week, RTX will demonstrate cordless phone sets designed to provide wireless VoIP access through a PC's USB port, in addition to a standard interface to public-switched telephone networks (PSTNs). This provides consumers with streamlined access to regular telephone services and VoIP using a single cordless telephone.
This will be the first of what will be a suite of products, including a VoFi (802.11-enabled wireless VoIP) phone.
