The article focuses on the use of fixed/mobile convergence as one of the most important trends in wireless systems. Convergence in such case involves the unification of cellular phones and enterprise telecom systems based on PBXs, allowing a cell phone to become an extension on an enterprise telecom implementation. The benefits of such approach are lower costs, due to having less infrastructure to maintain, unification of key CLASS and custom-calling services and enhancing the enterprise's telecom reach.
