BrT to test hybrid Wi-Fi phone

9 May 2008

Brazilian telecoms operator Brasil Telecom (BrT) plans to begin pre-commercial field trials of a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based Wi-Fi version of its fixed-mobile hybrid phone service Unico, writes BNamericas citing BrT fixed line product marketing manager Rivo Manhaes. The company announced plans to introduce a Wi-Fi version of the phone in February 2007 and had hoped to launch it by the end of last year. Although Manhaes would not provide reasons why the service launch keeps getting pushed back, he did say that the company was ‘still engaged in adapting product features’.
