how do I bring wireless capabilities to my e-business?

Research indicates that the mobile workforce will reach 47 million workers by 2003. Wireless data subscribers will grow from 3 million to 36 million subscribers in the same time frame. It all means that the wireless revolution is poised to affect e-Business more than anyone can fully realize.

Accessing data anytime, anywhere is one part of the wireless equation. So is doing business anytime, anywhere. Mobile commerce (m-Commerce), whether business-to-commerce (B2C) or business-to-business (B2B), is an express train that companies must hop on if they are to capture the biggest possible slice of the overall e-Commerce pie.

Despite all the attention lavished on the wireless revolution, it is still very much in its infancy. Standards are being developed, applications are being built, and an infrastructure is falling into place. You can't wait until all the pieces fit before you address wireless networking as part of your e-Business. The articles in this section provide you with information you need to start weaving wireless capabilities into your e-Business infrastructure. Among the issues you'll read about:

  • Wireless application design. It's not the same as Web application design, so you must understand the differences.
  • Wireless networks. They're not all about buying and selling. LANs and now personal area networks enjoy improved efficiencies once you cut the wires.
