NGN Migration Approaches ITU-T o Two steps to migrate to NGN: • Softswitch based PSTN Emulation — Highlights : 100 % preservation of TDM voice features • IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) based PSTN Simulation — Highlights : Some important voice features + NEW multimedia services ITU-T Workshop on “Next Generation Networks“ Hanoi.

All PSTN/ISDN services remain available and identical (i.e. Vietnam. with the same ergonomics) such that end users are unaware that they are not connected to a TDM-based PSTN/ISDN. ITU-T Workshop on “Next Generation Networks“ Hanoi. although end users expect to have access to the most popular ones. possibly with different ergonomics. There is no strict requirement to make all PSTN/ ISDN services available or identical.
