Whether it’s device security, network access, application access, or other aspects, a new view of security is required. This overview will provide a wide-ranging look at all elements of mobile security, and provide a survey of our predictions on future trends.

Which Is It, and were very interesting.” Does It Really Matter? Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC), a hot topic several years ago, has become confusing since many implementations never dealt with fixed at all. Instead Gartner has proposed a new term, Mobile Unified Communications (MUC), to better illustrate the integration of wireless networks and the ability of devices to traverse them, combined with the overlay of applications such as email, instant messaging, voice calls, and intelligent routing using presence and context capabilities. This debate will discuss the future of network and applications as either a progression of the operator-created term, FMC, or the newer view as MUC.
