HARD CELL • Switched Mode has produced a cellular interface which allows users to unplug a standard phone, take it to a car or truck and use it as an extension. This enables operators to fax to sales reps and engineers on-site, and to use a PC direct from a vehicle to a mainframe computer. Switch Mode is now offering the system to Motorola, Philips and Panasonic.
