Toronto-based NewStep Networks Inc. will demonstrate seamless voice call continuity between cellular/Wi-Fi networks and mobile, fixed, and soft phones this week at ITU Telecom World 2006 in Hong Kong.

NewStep’s demonstration will involve the company’s standards-compliant Voice Call Continuity product, Dual-Mode Handoff, which allows subscribers to make and receive calls on cellular/Wi-Fi phones using presence-based call routing and with what it describes as “seamless handover between cellular and Wi-Fi networks without any interruption in the voice call.”

The dual-mode solution leverages hosted VoIP and enterprise-based IP PBX capabilities together with mobile GSM, UMTS, CDMA, and Wi-Max networks to deliver a unified communications experience.

“Service providers are looking for ways to deliver higher value services that integrate the enterprise and mobile calling environments, while at thesame time providing alternatives for key customers to control their overall communications costs,” said David Bridge, vice-president Asia-Pacific forNewStep Networks.

The conference opened today.
