By September 27th, 2010 AT 3:43 PM

India’s National Telecom Backbone Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) will roll out fixed mobile convergence (FMC) service for its subscribers in India to provide seamless indoor coverage for GSM mobile service users.

Talking with the media on the sidelines of 3G INDIA conference held at Taj Lands End in Mumbai, Mr. R. K. Agrawal, Director-Consumer Mobility, BSNL said that Company is geared up to launch the facility of the fixed mobile convergence which is able to provide better user experience and convenience with full connectivity while deep indoor area.

BSNL will launch its fixed mobile convergence facility to its subscribers once the mobile number portability (MNP) comes into effect.

The Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) is the trend towards seamless connectivity between fixed/landline and wireless/mobile telecommunications networks. The term also describes any physical network that allows cellular telephone sets to function smoothly with the fixed network infrastructure.

The ultimate goal of FMC is to optimize transmission of all data, voice and video communications to and among end users, no matter what their locations or devices. In the more immediate future, FMC means that a single device can connect through and be switched between wired and wireless networks.

Typically, these services rely on Dual Mode Handsets, where the customers’ mobile terminal can support both the wide-area (cellular) access and the local-area technology (for VoIP). However, an alternative approach achieves FMC over 3G mobile networks – eliminating the requirement for Dual Mode.
