Voice Networks Need to Change

Today’s voice networks need to change to better align with today’s market realities. While web-scale and virtualized software will be at the heart of new voice networks, how should service providers embrace cloud technologies and migrate to a next-generation virtualized software solution?

Virtualization Road Maps

Service providers have two options for taking advantage of network virtualization technology: build an NFV network or leverage a hosted virtualized VoIP software platform. Building NFV presents a number of challenges relative to agility, operational complexity and total cost of ownership. A hosted approach to NFV VoIP is emerging as an alternative and, for many providers, is the best path forward to realizing the goals of NFV transformation.

This white paper explores:

  • Coping with the commoditization of voice
  • Challenges in building and operating an NFV voice network
  • Benefits of cloud sourcing next-generation VoIP/IMS platforms
