Atheros has made a number of moves toward supporting voice over IP over Wi-Fi: Atheros chips are being used by Japanese vendor ICOM in access points that are designed specifically for voice applications. Atheros has also introduced a product line and an open source project aimed at making it simple to use a handheld device, like a phone, to do voice over Wi-Fi. We may see an interesting battle in the near future among chip vendors hoping to score a share of the mobile voice over IP market. The mobile phone makers usually stick to a small group of chip makers so I’d be interested to watch chip developers like Atheros try to get a foot in that door, as the handset makers look to develop combined cellular/Wi-Fi voice devices.
