Two individually pressing issues are converging to create an urgent dilemma for service providers and mobile operators.
 
While bandwidth demands explode, especially for mobile Internet, ATM vendor equipment support wanes due to Nortel's bankruptcy and breakup (leaving support for its Passport line of ATM switches in question).
 
In Tellabs' new white paper, "From ATM to IP/Ethernet: Three Strategies for Cost-Effective Network Convergence," you'll learn strategies that both mitigate risk to your existing network and enable you to efficiently migrate to meet coming demand through a single, converged platform.

When short message service (SMS) debuted more than 15 years ago, few could have guessed that a 160-character message exchanged between mobile subscribers was destined for such great success. According to Portio Research estimates, global texters sent nearly 3.5 trillion messages in 2008. To put that figure in perspective, that is roughly five-hundred times the global population. And, all those messages are creating impressive returns; SMS generates more revenue than all other data services combined (Frost & Sullivan, 2008). While operators have welcomed this dramatic growth, they are beginning to discover that success has a downside.

This handbook presents the toughest infrastructure challenges and demonstrates how Tekelec's SMS Network solution is helping operators address them.
