CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The ongoing evolution of advanced telco services is driven by changes in how consumers want to access communications and content services, and these changes in behavior are no longer limited to the Millennials. Service providers that best manage their way through these changes while preserving existing business models will gain a competitive advantage, according to a new report from Pyramid Research (www.pyr.com).
How NGNs Enable Advanced Telco Services addresses both the technical and the business value aspects of NGN and provides an overview of the NGN market context and drivers. Pyramid looks into the technologies and their readiness, including the IMS architecture. Mobile IP access and communications, application signaling, IPTV, and service deliver platforms are also examined. Pyramid explores NGN services, devices, pricing models and best practices. Case studies of NGN deployments are presented next, followed by analysis of NGN performance and business opportunities for operators.
According to the report, the rise of the digital lifestyle, in which consumers rely upon a host of digitally connected devices, and the software and applications – and the networks that power them – is compelling operators to evolve their delivery capabilities accordingly. A facilities-based approach using NGN principles is the winning formula for the long term, because the network intelligence inherent in NGN can accommodate a blend of managed services, OTT content and ecosystem-based delivery over any access with guaranteed quality of service. As service providers gain further experience in deploying, managing and maintaining these offerings, and develop more efficient methods of service, support and maintenance, the value proposition of NGNs will be even more compelling.
How NGNs Enable Advanced Telco Services is part of Pyramid's thematic report series, and is priced at $3,495. Download an excerpt or purchase the report here. For more information, contact Jarka Justova (for those in EMEA or Asia/Pacific) or Juan Gobbi (for those in Latin America or North America).
