The Fixed-Mobile Convergence Alliance (FMCA), a global alliance of telecom operators, has hired IDC Corp. to assess the challenges and opportunities presented by convergence globally over the next five years.
The project will support an FMCA work stream designed to assess the market opportunity for fixed-mobile convergence products and services.
Terms of the contract call for IDC to develop an industry standard definition of fixed-mobile convergence services, quantify the current and future global convergence opportunity, detail key segments and regional markets, and forecast the total number of convergence subscribers and the market share that convergence will capture of the total telecommunications sector.
A first analysis is expected to be available for download on the FMCA Web site by the fourth quarter of this year.
