The article discusses the adoption of fixed-mobile convergence (FMC), the seamless switching between cellular and wireless local area networks for mobile users, which has been an advantage to the U.S. enterprise networks. The president of Insight Research Robert Rosenberg has seen the growing wireless and wireline revenue and profit margins of 40% to 45% every quarter from carriers including Verizon and AT&T. The emergence of wireline Voice-over Internet Protocol (VolP) could hinder the adoption of FMC in the enterprise using Power over Ethernet.
