According to research conducted at the York University, Canada, scientists have found a way to send text messages through Vodka . Researchers claim the system could one day fill gaps where wireless technology fails.
Meanwhile “Absolut”, a Swedish vodka distiller has announced interest over parts of Alcatel-Lucent, a network equipment vendor. The strategic move will allow both firms to drive innovation on “Voice over Vodka” (VoDKA) a new upcoming industry standard and cheaper alternative to VoLTE.
The technology will be available after extensive field-trials conducted in rural Russia and officially rolled out in most of Eastern Europe as early as 2015. 
ETSI (the global telecommunications standardization body) has set-up technical workgroups to address how VoDKA can be integrated into existing mobile network infrastructures and ensure inter-operability. Chief architects at BT and NSN agree that VoDKA opens exciting new possibilities in mobile data-offloading, at the cost of only a few extra potatoes.
