ast year, the Center for Communi-

reported that 40% of
enterprises had international mobile
roaming charges that exceeded
$1,000 per user, per month, and 13%
of them reported these same fees
exceeding $3,500 per user, per
month. Numbers like these inevitably
deter professionals from using their
smartphones for international
communications. In fact, 55% of the
enterprises surveyed in this study
have specifically created policies
restricting international mobile
communications. This limits profes-
sionals from using their mobile
devices, bothwhen they’re traveling
abroad andwhen they’re at home
reaching out to international
contacts.
Restrictivemobile policies, while
oftentimes necessary to curtail huge
wireless bills, have their drawbacks.
For instance, in the same report, 20%
of respondents indicated that
limiting international mobile usage
resulted in lost business opportuni-
ties. And, 25% stated that it caused
their employees lost productivity.
This is why companies have been
seeking awireless solution that will
allow them to ease their international
mobility restrictions so they can
provide their employees the access
they need tomaintain productivity
and facilitate business opportunities.
