Benefits of A over IP
Improve the voice service quality
end to end call between 2G-2G can avoid inserting TC unit by TrFO, so the voice quality can be
improved greatly

Economize BSS network cost


TC unit in BSC will move up to MGW and the TrFO can reduce the needed TC resource greatly

In favor of A-Flex networking and improve network reliability


The flat networking brought by IP can make the network deployment of MSC, SGSN resource
pool easier

2G/3G sharing the network transmission


IP BSS can make 2G and 3G sharing the basic network and no need to maintenance a TDM
basic network for 2G BSS separately

Save transmission resource cost


voice compression, transmission multiplexing and compression technique can improve the
transmission efficiency and resource utilization ratio. The cost of building or renting IP
transmission is quite lower than TDM network of same bandwidth
