Abstract

Modern communication devices and protocols can be used to enable a seamless switch from fixed line connections to radio frequency connections and back. This can be achieved by adding a simple device to an existing network and existing devices. This device initiates a second call parallel to the existing call and switches between the two connections as soon as they are established. Then the first connection is closed.
