Smartphones to replace landlines within 5 yrs finds survey
A recent study has suggested that smartphones will outstay Landline phones in offices within five years.
According to a research carried by Virgin Media Business, the current importance of office landline will soon be a matter of the past and will be replaced by smartphones.
Sixty-five per cent of CIOs (chief information officers) said that the desk telephone will loose its vitality due to the growing dominance of dominance.
"The pace of change with technology is having a transformative effect on the way we work. A decade ago it would have been unthinkable to suggest an office without telephones. Now it's hard to imagine being separated from our smartphones," the Telegraph quoted Tony Grace, CEO of Virgin Media Business, as saying.
In the complete study, 62 percent of the total interviewed told the next piece of office technology that is most likely to disappear is the desktop computer.
Peter Cochrane, a futurologist, predicted that landlines would soon be replaced by wireless technology, with the set up of optical fibre in all office spaces.
"Optical fibre will replace landlines and most devices will connect using wireless. But the landlines can't go until there is wireless connectivity to replace it. There won't be wireless connectivity to replace it until there is optical fibre available to offices and homes in sufficent density," he said.
Cochrane suggested that with the gradual development of the technology, people will be more inclined towards Skype-style conferencing systems to communicate with each other.
