Services Over IP: Delivering New Value Through Next-Generation Networks

Overview: IP technology is the catalyst for change. To telecom SPs, IP brings unprecedented changes beyond what is considered an ongoing evolution, in particular to the network: Network convergence brings together previously parallel networks (cellular, fixed, enterprise) onto a single IP-based infrastructure. Service convergence enables integrated service propositions (e.g., ""Triple"" and ""Quadruple"" plays). Network convergence links with service convergence to enable virtually ""Anytime, anywhere, anyhow"" service delivery. Such changes present major challenges and demand renewed SP attention to their network strategies.
