Calypso Wireless Profile

Calypso's technology allows you to switch and connect from either a Cellular Network or a Wireless Local Area Network Access Point (WLAN), seamlessly without the user noticing the change.

This means uninterrupted connectivity as you travel in and out of the range of WLAN access points. The use of ASNAP™ (Automatic Switching of Network Access Points) also increases the amount of available wireless bandwidth from the current state of technology of 9.6 kbps to 11 Mbps.

Now the transfer of large files such as pictures, music and video between wireless devices can be completed faster than you can do them on your home computer. ASNAP™ also enables real-time mobile video conferencing capabilities, with friends and families anywhere in the world.
