Fixed Mobile Convergence Set to Gain Significant Traction

Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) is set to gain significant traction throughout 2007. Either through the use of private GSM networks, or WiFi, mobile phone usage is about to undergo a radical change, which will at last hand control back to the organisation and bring a new degree of flexibility and innovation, by providing the ability to integrate mobile phones into the enterprise network.

More Emphasis will be Placed on Unified Security

As a direct result of the consolidation that has taken place in the security market over the past twelve months, during 2007 expect to see more emphasis being placed on the requirement for unified protection and network infrastructure security systems. One example is Unified Access Control - products that enable organisations to understand all devices that operate across their networks, and then extend their reach to controlling how such devices should be evaluated and managed as they attempt logon, including the evaluation of device acceptability and end-user authentication.
