Enterprises are rapidly embracing mobility with the goal of keeping employees connected and productive wherever they are. As a means to augment sometimes unreliable and slow wireless carrier networks, enterprise users are beginning to lean on nearly ubiquitous, much faster Wi-Fi connectivity using dual-mode mobile devices.
This research note addresses the following key areas that can help enterprises get the most out of dual-mode mobile devices:
- Take advantage of Wi-Fi for data connectivity.
- Use Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) to reduce cellular costs.
- Implement enterprise Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) to reduce costs and make Unified Communications (UC) a reality.
Dual-mode mobile devices are becoming more widely available and enterprises interested in harnessing mobility to enhance productivity should understand how to get full value from these uber devices.
