  2. 2. economic slowdown. The market remained almost flat in 2008 and is expected to declinefurther in 2009. It is, however, expected to begin to recover in 2010 and experience moresignificant growth in 2011. The market is also feeling the heat of the competition from othertypes of mobile technologies such as advanced smartphones with built-in enterprise fixedmobile convergence (FMC) solutions. The threat from these solutions is very real since theyfrequently present a compelling value proposition to IT departments seeking to provideemployees with a single device offering multiple capabilities. Moreover, the DECT markethas to battle the perception of being an outdated and primarily consumer-centrictechnology. Participants will also have to address numerous other challenges includingchannel education, product evolution, quality and security, interoperability with wired andwireless systems, and the slow ratification of standards.Despite these issues, DECT and VoWLAN single-mode vendors can still stay afloat if theylaunch aggressive global campaigns aimed at promoting the various benefits andcapabilities of their on-site mobility solutions. Competition from enterprise FMC solutions willmost likely remain limited in the near term until users become more familiar with the valueof these nascent technologies. Therefore, enterprises are likely to continue to deploy themore reliable DECT devices or the mature single-mode VoWLAN handsets.Frost & Sullivan expects technologies such as IP DECT and SIP DECT to drive further DECTadoption, while voice-ready WLAN infrastructure implementations across verticals andregions will keep the VoWLAN single-mode market buoyant. Besides, most of VoWLAN’sbasic challenges have been resolved through continuous improvements in handsetcapabilities, wireless standards, as well as partnerships among device vendors, IP telephonyproviders, and WLAN infrastructure companies. Meanwhile, many major DECT phonemanufacturers have launched innovative advanced DECT handsets. New handsetcapabilities include enhanced interfaces, additional software functions, novel form factors(smartphone-resembling devices), improved device durability, integration with advancedmessaging and alarming systems, push-to-talk, location-based features, and centralizedmanagement capabilities, says the analyst of this research. Many DECT participants affirmthat the new capabilities offered by DECT technologies equal or even surpass those offeredby VoWLAN single-mode devices.Growing enterprise WLAN and IP telephony penetration will boost adoption of both DECTand VoWLAN solutions. On-site mobility vendors could further expand their growthopportunities within the DECT and VoWLAN single-mode market by focusing on keyverticals. They need to monitor specific vertical requirements in terms of on-site mobilitysolutions and identify potentially lucrative verticals. Vendors have to strive to provideevidence of cost savings and productivity gains through success case studies and end-usersurveys, notes the analyst. They should strategize for the current economic conditions byoffering different payment options when launching or presenting an FMC offering. They can
