Sample text

Likewise, for landline operators, FMC is a perfect vehicle to un-tether their service from a fixed location, making it location independent and therefore extending it to cover wide areas. This can be achieved by striking MVNO-style contracts with wireless carriers, tying their VoIP or in some cases even traditional PSTN infrastructure with the cellular network. The resulting service and subscriber equipment such as mobile phones would still carry the familiar branding of a fixed operator, such as BT Fusion, Vonage Mobile, or Skype Mobile, thereby minimizing the potential collateral effect of escalating fixed-to-mobile migration.

Last but not least, FMC affords service enhancement and expansion potentials, both strategic and tactical, for example, enabling the coveted quadruple play for fixed operators or the ability to enter the MVNO business and extend their offerings to the wireless medium for VoIP service providers. FMC Drivers and Barriers This section offers more detailed analysis of both positive and negative impacts of FMC on service provider business along with an in-depth discussion of its drivers and barriers around the four Cs.

The resulting subscriber dissatisfaction is equally damaging to both fixed and mobile operators. The carriers that are capable of figuring out the winning formula (user satisfaction = unified user experience + homogeneous service + multimode/multifunction common UI devices) and converging disparate services stand not only to stimulate use and improve average revenue per user (ARPU) but also to reap all the other associated benefits such as reduced churn and improved rates of new customer acquisition.
