Telecom Practice Highlights

Challenges & Opportunities

Mature communications operators have typically grown through consolidation. Addition of bolt-on solutions to an existing infrastructure for handling new services resulted in complex, unwieldy and often isolated operating models. Competing with more agile players will require enterprises to simplify key operational requirements such as customer understanding and responsiveness, ongoing cost reduction, usage-based pricing, and bundled offerings.

The lines are blurring between wireline, wireless, cable and satellite companies – they are interconnected like never before. Enterprise success is now linked to differentiating a new integrated portfolio with innovative service offerings.

Telecom companies face a unique set of challenges that stem from technology trends and customer demands. The convergence of applications, networks or content in this new-age information super highway has become the next path-breaking move in core mass-market technology providing single connectivity and integrated user experience. Today, Communications enterprises are navigating some of the biggest shifts ever witnessed in technology, culture and business models–from adoption to preference, from fragmented audiences to convergent industries, from emerging economies to game-changing new players.

Embracing technology and business forces that create this shift will help tomorrow’s enterprises lead the ‘digital evolution’ and stay strong–creatively and financially.


Offerings & Solutions

Telecom service providers are facing tremendous challenges on improving profit margins, falling ARPU's, high customer churn, fierce competition, customer experience, maintaining QoS, demand for new services and bundles, and heavy investments for network transformation.

At the same time, fast-paced innovation, advent of next generation wireless technology (LTE/Wimax), converged networks, competition from new entrants and demand for end-to-end managed services from service providers is putting immense pressure on telecom equipment vendors.

Overcoming the Limitations of Legacy Networks: Case Study

A service provider's intelligent network is critical to innovation and profitable growth today, supporting the cost-effective development and provisioning of new network services. For many companies, however, legacy intelligent networks are reaching the end of their life; some platforms are no longer supported by the vendors who implemented them, and costs for maintaining the network are high. Companies are looking for ways to increase margins and stay competitive by reducing their operating expenses.

The next-generation intelligent network solution from provides operators with a practical approach to migrating their networks toward an all-IP service layer supporting both IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and legacy SS7 networks.

The solution is based on two components: next-generation application servers and a service broker.
