The article reports on the adoption of fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) by companies. The research firm Yankee Group reports that few companies have acquired FMC in Europe or North America. The company also reported that some information technology (IT) executives do not consider FMC a high priority. Brian Kotlyar, a research associate at Yankee Group, comments that FMC has not been as popular as expected but predicts that the integration of voice into mobile communications will increase adoption of FMC and that benefits to productivity should be emphasized.
