    Why you need to take a second look at MVS 

    RIM adds Wi-Fi, SIP support to FMC platform.

    Previously all I had ever heard the big selling point with MVS was that if you used T-Mobile (because of their UMA package) you could save money with reducing voice recurring charges by lowering your overall minutes.  However, that was a problem as depending on your area T-Mobile may or may not have been the carrier of choice for your employees or company.

    Now that RIM has opened up MVS to take advantage of SIP, and allowing itself to move off of strictly Cisco PBX branded hardware (a problem for us).  In addition, RIM did not make wi-fi ubiquitous throughout all their handsets.  Now that even CDMA handsets will include wi-fi, the choices are much more open, and could compel businesses with especially international needs to take advantage of this version of MVS (Mobile Voice System)

    RIM CEO pulls an AT&T: “We need to conserve bandwidth” 

    “Manufacturers had better start building more efficient applications and more efficient services. There is no real way to get around this.”

    via RIM CEO pulls an AT&T: “We need to conserve bandwidth”.

    Ultimately, Jim Lazaridis is correct.  Wireless telecom, at least how it is today will not be able to grow total bandwith at an exponential rate.

    Firstly, there is no existing model of ISP that matches wireless.  Current last mile ISPs can provide nearly 50Mbps and eventually gigabit bandwith to the home (see Google http://bit.ly/aONrrF).  Conceivably, the market could demand that the pipe that goes to your house is accessed through some central hub that any ISP can hook into (kind of like that failed DSL experiment) and you simply pick and choose who provides the Internet.  Wireless telecoms own their spectrum and don’t simply allow any wireless carrier to hop onto it.
