Advances in Voice-over-IP (VoIP), and cellular networking technologies are driving opportunities for businesses to improve productivity while saving on telecommunication expenses. One fast-developing area, Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) allows mobile phones to connect to Wi-Fi networks when available, taking advantage of the low cost, high bandwidth and extensive indoor coverage of Wi-Fi networks. Within enterprise FMC there are several different architectural options that differ, depending on how closely the mobile phone is linked to the enterprise PBX, where the phone number is hosted and what voice and data calling features are offered on the phone.
