Symbol also makes 802.11 VOIP phones and sells them in their verticals.

NetVision® Phone

Symbol Technologies' NetVision Phone adds voice communication to
Spectrum24® wireless LAN installations to allow simultaneous voice and
data support on the same wireless backbone.

The NetVision Phone system provides on-site wireless voice communication
capability, and allows for integration into an existing phone system
(via a gateway) for internal and external voice communication.

Employing Voice-Over-IP technology, based on the ITU standard H.323, the
NetVision Phone converts analog voice into compressed digital packets
that are sent via TCP/IP protocol over standard data networks.
