According to the agreement between the two companies, Sleipner will conduct a field trial of Calypso Wireless' ASNAP(tm) patented technology (U.S. Patent #6,680,923) that enables mobile users to seamlessly switch back and forth between GSM/GPRS/CDMA cellular networks and Wi-Fi wireless local area networks (WLAN) utilizing the 802.11 standard.

Calypso piqued the interest of many Mobile Carriers by demonstrating its ASNAP(tm) technology which provides a system that enables Mobile Carriers and Internet Service Providers to identify and authenticate the mobile user, thereby creating a platform for revenue sharing between the synergistic companies and increased revenues for them by delivering new added services. Calypso patented technology could also provide significant savings to Mobile Carriers in additional frequency spectrum and infrastructure equipment by offloading capacity to the Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) and IP networks while providing additional sources of revenues providing newly services such as real time two way video conferencing, fast Internet connection and VoIP.
