As companies continue to support an increasingly virtual workforce, mobile communications are taking centre stage. Employees expect to be able to work from anywhere, and more and more are expecting to use BYOD (bring you own device) smart phones and tablets to access corporate applications and communications.
Many organisations are reviewing their overall Mobility strategy to include smart phones and tablets whilst combating operator costs.
When it comes to Fixed Mobile Convergence, Mobile Voice over IP (Mobile VoIP, or mVoIP) can play a significant role in that effort by leveraging Wi-Fi networks to help enterprises lower communications costs without any disruption in quality or services; users who would ordinarily spend hundreds of pounds on international mobile calls or roaming charges can essentially make all those calls for free.Mobile VoIP also enables smoother, more effective communications for Head Office staff who nevertheless frequently work away from their desk phone.
