Start-up aims to join telephone, wireless calls

CNET "A secretive start-up backed by two powerful Silicon Valley venture capital firms will on Monday outline its plans for bridging the gulf between mobile telephones and fixed-line phone networks.
Executives of Mountain View, Calif.-based Stoke 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, which has been operating in 'stealth' mode since its founding, joins 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. "
