Building a Next-Generation Mobile Operator Business on an IP Foundation
Source: Cisco Systems
Mobile operators are facing an unprecedented period of transition as they consider how to transform their second-generation (2G) or 3G networks to an all-IP infrastructure to support Evolved High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA+), Long Term Evolution (LTE), and the evolution to 4G. The changes are not just at the physical level; they must reflect what customers want to do - today and tomorrow. More and more carriers are looking at HSPA+ as part of their LTE-readiness program so that they can transform their business from commodity-based service provider to experience provider offering premium value-added services.
