Network operators are faced with the daunting challenges of raising network capacity in response to exploding data traffic, moving all services to a single shared network, and migrating to packets in a cost-effective manner. Determining the right strategies and timing in today's business environment requires the end-to-end expertise of a trusted partner. Download our white paper today for more details.
Skyrocketing broadband traffic is stressing the mobile infrastructure, compelling operators to deploy higher bandwidth transport networks. Scaling legacy systems may be a short-term option, but legacy revenues are declining and packet transport offers a vastly more efficient mode of transport. While the right 4G network topology supports high traffic volume to the very edge, achieving dense hotspot coverage is another challenge.
Operators are migrating to packet transport, which enables scaling for explosive growth, native support of IP-based RAN infrastructure, fixed-mobile convergence, and cost-effective network sharing by multiple operators. Challenges include choosing the most cost-effective migration strategy, supporting the legacy infrastructure, and training staff to manage the network with its new core technologies.
