Fixed-Mobile-Convergence: a Billion-Dollar Market for Carriers

Fix-Mobile-Convergence (FMC) is one of the most important trends within the telecommunication industry. Analysts see the FMC market as a multi-billion dollar global opportunity for carriers. Over 100 experts from the telecommunication industry are expected at the FMC Summit 2008 (Munich, Arabella Sheraton Grand Hotel, March 12th-14th). Main topics are FMC strategies and challenges for service providers. Along with international carriers, Speech Design, an industry pioneer headquartered in Germering near Munich, will present its Business FMC solution. “We are very pleased to present our joint project with T-Systems. T-Systems is the first carrier globally to offer an FMC solution based on our technology to all its business customers” says Renaud Munier, Speech Design´s Deputy Managing Director.

Business FMC

Communicating via different networks (fixed, mobile, IP) has become a part of everyday business life. Crossing network boundaries is often impossible or cumbersome and costly. Fixed-Mobile-Convergence (FMC) integrates a user´s office and mobile phones into one functional unit, streamlining communications, increasing efficiency and, in many cases, reducing telephone bills. As an industry pioneer, Speech Design has been involved in Business FMC for several years and offers a complete solutions portfolio, enabling companies of all sizes to implement the „One Number, Any Device“ concept.

Teleserver Mobile Pro, the market-leading Business-FMC solution with over 1,000 installations, integrates any mobile phone as a normal extension into the corporate network. All office calls can be received or initiated on the employee´s fixed, mobile or IP phone, always using the corporate fixed-line extension number. Even in-conversation call transfer between devices is supported (start a call in your car, continue on the desktop phone or vice-versa). Convenient office PBX features, such as call forward, alternate, conference, hold, extension-dialling, etc., are now available on the mobile phone. The system integrates easily with most popular PBXs and is distributed by major PBX manufacturers and telecom dealers.

As a new offering for international service providers, Speech Design has introduced a „Transparent Mobility Gateway“ which can easily be marketed as a subscribed service. The gateway, switched between the customer´s on-site PBX and the PSTN, totally eliminates the need of proprietary PBX integration typical of other FMC solutions. In late 2007, T-Systems became the first major service provider to launch a Business FMC service based on this innovative approach. „Octopus Mobility Services“ are offered as a per-month/per-user subscription package to all business customers on T-Systems’ national ISDN network. Another recent addition to Speech Design´s Business FMC portfolio is a compact OEM version of the product, designed for an easy integration by PBX manufacturers into their systems. Siemens was the first global PBX maker to add this package to its HiPath 3000 system family. The optional mobility functions were integrated into Xpressions Compact, the internal voice mail card jointly developed by Siemens and Speech Design and, with tens of thousands of systems shipped, an ideal platform for the partners´ FMC initiative.
