Seemless handoff between WiFi and native cell networks...
Not sure I understand your argument.
That is an emerging technology that allows cell phone data to transparently move data across the traditional cell phone network and Wi-Fi. It is a clever authentication scheme that will reduce transport cost by removing large amount of traffic off the traditional cellular network and on to Wi-Fi LANs.
How do you think this massive amount of Wi-Fi data is transported? In almost all cases over wired networks.
posted wireless networks are great where mobility is important but that traffic is ultimately transported over wired infrastructure. We need a FTTP infrastructure. Once that is in place high performance wireless using a combination of cellular and Wi-Fi technology is feasible.
