Wireless technology provider Qualcomm Inc. has announced that its Mobile Station Modem chipsets will support Philips' wireless local area network (WLAN) module.

The integrated solution will offer connectivity to WLAN networks as well as to existing cellular networks and will feature compatibility with 802.11b and 802.11g protocols on both cdma2000 and W-CDMA (UMTS) networks.

"Our work with Philips helps us to address the demand for additional functionality in mobile devices," said Mike Concannon, vice president of strategic products for Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. "This strategic relationship delivers a number of new possibilities, which we look forward to making a reality."

The WLAN solution allows mobile handsets to use high-speed wireless local area networks when available for connections of up to 54Mbps. Initially supported on the MSM6550 chipset, the 802.11b/g-compatible broadband capabilities enabled by Philips' WLAN module are slated to be commercially available by the end of 2005.
