The next-generation of wireless technology has a new focus: enabling mobile business operations. This transcends the old wireless goals of voice roaming and a local data dynamic in favour of a new focus on enabling business operations remotely.

Data-capable devices are in wide deployment, with nearly 90% of IT executives indicating their organizations either support or use such instruments, according to Nemertes’ latest benchmark study, “Next-Generation Wireless”.

According to the research firm, WiFi integration is now becoming an important business tool that has largely been deployed to reduce the cost of cellular access. “Enterprises are demanding mobility solutions,” said Mike Jude, an analyst with Nemertes Research.

“Vendors and carriers must understand and develop wireless solutions that are aimed at improving business operations.”
