Stoke Merges Telephone And Wireless Calls

Kleiner Perkins lands another exciting technology start-up.

Executives of Mountain View, California-based Stoke Inc. say they are developing a way to offer so-called "fixed mobile convergence" inside offices, at home and around town as well -- a major stumbling block the communications industry is facing.

Stoke allows your phone to switch smoothly from wireless networks outside to the broadband network inside your home.

They join a dozen start-ups trying to solve the question of how to hook up mobile phone networks to fixed-line phone or cable networks to give phone users a single point of contact.
