Current forecasts indicate that demand for wireless access to global telecommunications
will reach one billion users by the year 2010, exceeding the likely number of wired
access lines. Today's rapidly changing business environment is creating intense
competition among corporations. Product life cycles are shortening and businesses must
compete globally. Employees are required to spend more time with their external and
internal customers in order to increase the competitiveness of their organizations. As a
result, employees are often away from their phones. Approximately 48 Million
employees spend over 20% of the workday away from their desks, and this number is
likely to grow. Today's market conditions therefore require that managers evaluate
cellular technology as an alternative to traditional wire line telecommunications services
to make their corporations more competitive. Since today's cellular network coverage
reaches about 95% of the population, cellular service is a ubiquitous method of providing
wireless service to employees on the move. The underlying vision for the emerging
mobile and personal communication services for the new century ids to enable
communication with a person at any time ,any place and in any form, with a paradigm
shift from current focus on voice and low speed data services to high speed data and
multimedia services Whether the employees are field engineers accessing databases, or
off site sales staff responding to customer inquiries, deploying cellular technology will
increase an organization's responsiveness making it more competitive.
