In today’s telecommunication markets, basic telephony services are still a major source of revenue for carriers, but in many geographies they have become a commodity offered by numerous service providers with little differentiation. Under the pressure of eroding margins, network operators are focusing on new sources of revenues while making best use of their existing assets. The new end-customer demand is in voicedata converged services. Businesses as well as residential users are increasingly asking for next generation services and applications. Residential users are continuing to adopt broadband at a rapid rate and are increasingly looking for value-enhancing applications for their broadband environment such as interactive games, movies, TV replay, video-telephony and music downloads. Business users are facing difficult communication dilemmas that need to be solved. People must no longer work in isolated teams, but in global communities with a common goal – and they will become increasingly mobile. As can be seen in Figure 1, the next few years will see a shift in business communication behavior: the synchronizing, integrating and managing of communications regardless of media, device, application or location. Increasingly, ISP’s are encroaching into the domain of voice carriers by offering VoIP services with enhanced features. Carriers need to have a solution to defend and retain their markets and revenues from this new threat. This poses a major problem for those carriers who have a TDM base that is still profitable but who are not yet under pressure to implement IP-based services. They are well aware that this situation will change, and may change faster than expected. Carriers worldwide regard the Next Generation Network as the right approach to changing customer demands, but have functioning TDM networks in place. Most carriers therefore prefer a step-by-step migration approach for their transition process, successively adding IP functionality to their existing network. The ideal solution would provide the best of both worlds by allowing continued investment in TDM while preparing the ground, both financially and technically, for IP-based services that can be taken advantage of at the appropriate time. But does such a solution exist? And if so, does it really give freedom of choice in deciding if, when and how the threshold to an IP-based solution is crossed?

falling tariffs also drive up PSTN traffic volume. In the course of time. This consists typically of capping the investment in existing TDM switches and deploying the SURPASS hiE 9200 Migration Switch and Trunk Gateways for the growth of trunk capacity using an IP transit infrastructure. SURPASS IP Trunking provides conversion of circuitswitched voice streams into packet data streams (and vice versa) and call-setup and media gateway control through the IP-based network. To cope with the traffic demand. for the largest part of the revenues and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. mainly competitive. extension of your transit network must be considered. Thus. for example when TDM switches become obsolete. however. Voice revenues still account. The challenge now is to support all existing voice services while taking advantage of cost-optimized IP backbone capacity. while interconnection to other networks.
