Cable & Wireless and RIM team up for fixed to mobile calls
Cable & Wireless has added RIM fto its service that allows businesses to route a fixed call to a mobile phone.
The product allows wireless access to services such as email, messaging and social networking on Blackberry handsets.
Mobile services will be delivered over a fixed IP network, combining fixed and mobile services on a single wireless device.
The technology also allows a mobile to act as a landline when the user is inside the office, transferring traffic to the fixed voice network, at the same cost as a landline call.
Meanwhile, when the user is outside the building, they will roam onto a mobile network.
