To the chagrin of wireless carriers, open-access has reared its ugly head because of renewed interest in the 1968 Carterfone Decision and the FCC's 700 MHz wireless spectrum auction. Although many wireless carriers oppose open-access, it is likely they will lose their questionable arguments against it – just as AT&T did in 1968.
Enterprises should begin planning to take advantage of open-access and consider the following areas:
- The key market drivers for wireless network open-access.
- The impact of open-access on the enterprise.
- The ramifications of open-access on the wireless industry.
- When tangible benefits of open-access will appear.
Although wireless network open-access will not occur quickly, it is looming on the horizon and enterprises should begin planning activities for its inevitable arrival.
