Enterprise Fixed/Mobile Convergence & Wireless VOIP
Enterprise-focused fixed/mobile convergence (FMC) initiatives that integrate telephony and other communications applications across corporate, broadband, and cellular networks could have a major positive impact on wireless carriers by driving penetration and usage of mobile devices in the enterprise market.

This report analyzes the drivers for enterprise FMC from the user, service provider, and corporate perspectives, and examines vendor strategies for projecting private branch exchange (PBX) telephony features, along with applications such as instant messaging and presence, into the wide-area cellular network.

A key market delineator is the extent to which enterprise FMC is controlled and managed by "mobility appliances" deployed in the enterprise itself, or hosted as software modules within the wireless carrier's IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) core network architecture. With carriers and enterprises both looking to maximize the benefits of convergence, both of these scenarios set up potential conflicts of interests.

Sample research data from the report is shown in the excerpts below:
