Fixed Mobile Convergence – the seamless integration of mobility into
business’s fixed infrastructure - addresses each of these concerns
A key component of FMC is cost efficiency – many implementations
can keep calls “on-net”, saving mobile minutes
FMC is designed to work in tandem with existing infrastructure, in
many cases making it more useful
The beauty of FMC is that deskbound, semi-mobile, and mobile
employees share the same feature capability and environment

24 Mbps downstream
3 Mbps upstream.
converged multimedia applications
A user with WLAN access could be connected through appropriate multi-access (WLAN and cellular) terminals to the Internet, to the PSTN, or to mobile network(s).
Broadband wireless access (BWA). 2 - 11 GHz frequency band range (as per IEEE specification in 2004).
FMC With IP
Dual Mode Device (IP-PBX client)
IP Enabled PBX functions on one device while on campus utilizing the WLA|N (802.11 b/g) infrastructure.
Reduces on-campus and inter-campus calls.
Only with in campus
3G????(not applicable because IP-PBX does not support)
(companies like Nokia, Avaya, Motorola use this technology).

FMC With UMA
Unlicensed Mobile Access
Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) technology provides access to GSM and GPRS mobile services over unlicensed spectrum technologies, including Bluetooth and 802.11.
It establishes a standard for seamless hand-off and roaming between a cellular network and fixed IP-based wireless networks .
UMA is on top of it at the transport layer (Layer 4) and has its own set of control protocols .
What is UNC???
A UMA Network Controller (UNC) acts as a virtual base station,
and Wi-Fi networks.
If approved, the subscriber’s current location information stored in the core network is updated, and from that point on all mobile voice and data traffic is routed to the handset via the Unlicensed Mobile Access Network (UMAN) rather than the cellular radio access network (RAN).
The mobile station moves from macro network to a UMAN.
The mobile station moves from UMAN to macro network.
The mobile station moves with in a UMAN or from UMAN to UMAN.
Different security mechanism operate at different levels:
UMA “enabled”, plug and play access points. Supporting Bluetooth and WLAN.
Standard BSC with minor adjustments to cater for capacity increase in cell handling
UMA profile in handset enabling roaming into unlicensed access network
