Mobile computers and wireless networking are increasingly enticing a mobile workforce to carry more computing power and maintain real-time Internet connection to their company resources and customers. The Intel Banias chipset is expected to multiply that effect, by combining energy efficiency with built-in Wi-Fi wireless capabilities.

The Intel Communications Fund, managed by Intel Capital, has announced its strategic funding of companies that are introducing innovative technologies for use on Wi-Fi (802.11) wireless computer networks.

TeleSym, one of those Wi-Fi innovators, brings the advantages of Internet phone calling to mobile computers. The company's SymPhone System is software that enables clear, cost-effective voice communications on wireless mobile computers.

Users can make and receive calls over the Internet from a mobile computer (laptop, tablet-PC or PDA), throughout the building or campus, at home and public Wi-Fi hotspots. Wireless factory and warehouse users can also use SymPhone as an intercom or cordless phone, using the same computer they use to access their company email.

The 30-day free trial of SymPhone Client is available for any user of a Windows-based computer (beta software for Windows XP and 2000) or a Pocket PC 2002 PDA equipped with an 802.11b wireless (Wi-Fi networking). This offer enables free SymPhone-to-SymPhone calls, as well as free SymPhone-to-telephone calls to any Seattle-area number, as well as calling card calls anywhere in the world.

SymPhone Systems are available through a global network of wireless and telephony integrators trained in its configuration and installation. A typical business installation, including server software, costs less than $300 per user, exclusive of computers and other hardware. Dealers can be located through www.telesym.com.

TeleSym, Bellevue, Wash., is developing next-generation technology for wireless IP telephony.
