I'm hoping that TI's UR8 residential gateway architecture, and one of the five chipsets announced today will help me get the reception I need going from my cell phone in my car to my home-office phone.
TI introduced five DSL chipsets within its UR8 residential gateway architecture family. See a related article Overcome triple- and quadruple-play challenges with next-gen residential gateways. Given the problems faced by dual-mode phones--using one within the GSM network that immediately changes over to the home network--TI's solution makes sense. By eliminating one level of transcoding between the VoIP codec and the wireless codec, reception should improve. Now if they could just solve my particular problem.
I live in the mountains. I can get cell phone coverage at the end of my street, and DSL coverage at home. Please, TI, work on just one more chipset that will bridge that quarter-mile gap.
