Cisco Systems Inc. said it would begin selling mobile telephones based on a short-range wireless technology as part of efforts to boost sales of systems that use Internet technology for phone calls.
San Jose-based Cisco, the No. 1 maker of equipment that directs Internet traffic, has targeted wireless local area networks and Internet phone calling, known as IP telephony, as growth markets.
The new phones are designed to work within a corporate campus. They will allow callers to roam without missing phone calls.
