British Telecom (BT) today launched a new service called Fusion which seamlessly transfers calls between a cellular network and a home VOIP base station, providing cheaper calls and better reception for mobile subscribers at home. Subscribers will use a Motorola V560 handset which has quad band GSM/GPRS for connecting to cellular networks (sold with a Vodafone subscription) and Class 1 Bluetooth for connecting to a base station up to 100 meters (about 330 feet) away. When the phone comes within range of a paired base station, it transfers calls (even live conversations) from the cell network to the base station, which transmit calls over broadband using VOIP. The reverse happens when a subscriber is on a call and goes out of range.
