Wireless PBXs

Writes Kevin Werbach: “Within the next few years most large corporations and highly traficked public areas worldwide will have WiFi wireless hotspots. (I believe he predicted 1 million worldwide by 2006, which at first sounds like a big number but actually feels about right.) If quality of service, roaming, and security issues can be worked out — and all of these straightforward technically — there is a killer app for companies to run “wireless PBXs.” In other words, route their voice traffic within the company over the private WiFi network. This would save mucho costs, and give the companies features and management capabilities they don’t have today. We’re probably talking 2-4 years for even early adopters to go this way, but the numbers could get very big very fast.”
