1. An IP-enabled communication device for multiplexing signals comprising:

  • a plurality of wireless communication units, wherein the device supports a plurality of transmit and receive frequencies and a plurality of wireless protocols;

    wherein a first wireless communication unit is coupled to a first set of antennas configured to transmit and receive on a first network and wherein a second wireless communication unit is coupled to a second set of antennas and configured to transmit and receive on a second network;

    wherein the at least one wireless communication unit is configured for radio frequency communication;

    wherein the first wireless communication unit is configured to operate at a lower frequency than the second wireless communication unit such that the first and second wireless communication units operate as complementary systems and reduce interference with each other; and

    wherein the first wireless transmit and receive unit operates on the first network path to a remote server and the second wireless transmit and receive unit communicates to the remote server on the second network path in response to a change in the signal strength and/or connectivity of the first wireless communication unit or second wireless communication unit; and

    wherein video or audio can be accessed simultaneously with performance optimized for each through dedicated or multiplexed paths; and

    further in communication with the remote server, wherein the mobile device is configured to receive multiple IP data packets on a plurality of ports at substantially the same time and send multiple data packets to the server, to allow multiple simultaneous communication paths over connections between the device and the server;

    wherein the mobile device is configured to receive multiple IP data packets on a plurality of ports at substantially the same time and send multiple data packets to the server, to allow multiple simultaneous communication paths over connections between the device and the server.
