Communication Service Providers around the world continue to evolve and modernize their networks from circuit switched to VoIP/IMS and from GSM/CDMA to LTE/EPC Diameter-based networks; while at the same time preparing for their 5G futures. Meanwhile, multiple vendors are choosing to retire legacy and proprietary equipment which still generate important revenue streams for the CSP and are vital to the continual running of CSP networks and services. All providers today are faced with important decisions such as negotiating out-of-warranty support contracts or consolidation and modernization with a platform that will see them into a future-proof architecture and operational environment.
In this webinar, NetNumber will discuss 3 main topics; First is some of the common challenges today that CSPs are facing when going through a network modernization; Second we will evaluate a range of underlying elements that should be considered during a transformation, including the importance of data analytics; and third, the short-medium-long term benefits of marrying legacy services (such as STP, Number Portability, HSS, HLR, ENUM) with future services (such as DSC, Signaling Firewall and 5G) on a flexible and forward-facing platform in a virtualized world.
