Fixed-mobile convergence combined with VoIP will allow corporate customers to reduce their voice spend by over 30%, according to a new report, Fixed-Mobile Convergence in the Enterprise Voice Market, published by Analysys.
The research firm says that mobile network operators in particular will have to work hard to slow the decline in enterprise voice revenues in the face of technology that can allow companies to bypass their more expensive services.
“Companies are spending over 80% of their call bill on mobile services, and that is causing them to turn to new technology looking for savings,” said Margaret Hopkins, the report’s author.
“Wireless gateways, VoIP and Wi-Fi offer them ways of cutting this bill that are independent of the network operators. Operators need to come up with innovative services to minimize the revenue leakage.”
