Even before the 802.11e quality of service standard is ratified, vendors are supporting mechanisms that can give voice priority: Some vendors are using the interim Wireless Multimedia (WMM) sub-standard and others are using their own special tricks. SpectraLink has been doing voice over wireless for a very long time but is leaving behind the mechanism it developed in favor of the more standard method. For now, it seems that the types of users that can benefit the most from these services, due to the existing potential quality issues, include manufacturing-type facilities where users can live with some quality issues in exchange for the benefits of mobility.

On EVDO, voice has always had priority, so during emergencies or after big sporting events.. data goes down... you could use a hsdpa / evdo dual balanced wifi router to practically resolve the issue... with its low 70ms latency... its a big step closer
