China Fixed-Mobile Convergence Opportunities and Challenges

This IDC study analyzes the China fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) market status and development trends. It includes business models for key foreign and domestic players as well as FMC services, opportunities and threats, and recommendations.

"Currently, China FMC services are mainly for narrowband voice. The release of 3G licenses will restructure the telecom sector in China, to a great extent deciding the path, operating mode, and application mode of FMC in the future. Following the development of technology and the increasingly diversified demands of customers, the convergence of voice, data, content, and applications will be the mainstream FMC services in China,"says Owen Li, research analyst, Telecom Research, IDC China.
