Ericsson, Telenor form joint project to test UMTS-WLAN integrated solutions

LM Ericsson AB said it has formed a joint project with Telenor AS to test UMTS and Wireless LAN integrated solutions. The company said it will evaluate the commercial and practical aspects of integrating these in one solution which would provide UMTS users with added capacity in crowded places, including airports and conference centres. The project, H2U, will examine the connection of a HiperLAN2 network to the surrounding UMTS network with a seamless mobility between the two.
