Motorola Inc. announced today that it is joining forces with Cisco Systems Corp. to deliver new enterprise mobility products.

The line-up will include dual-mode cellular and Wi-Fi phones that the two said will help enterprises increase employee productivity, boost company agility and allow greater cost and security control over its IT environments.

The Motorola-Cisco offerings will operate using 802.11 technology inside the enterprise and cellular telephony elsewhere, with a seamless hand-off of communications between networks.

They will be available as an extension to the Cisco CallManager IP-based communications system, utilizing a standards-based interface.

“The convergence of cellular and WLAN networks on a single device further enhances the value proposition of IP-based applications for the enterprise,” said Barry O’Sullivan, vice president and general manager for the Cisco IPCommunications Business Unit.
