Our study into TDM-to-IP migration indicates that some European operators have adopted a progressive approach and that their transition programmes are well underway.
The PSTN is beginning to look unsustainable for many incumbent fixed operators. Most operators have plans for decommissioning legacy assets, and the PSTN is likely to feature significantly. But is the cost of transforming the network worth the returns it could deliver on a service that fewer and fewer people actually want? In this Report, we closely examine the subject of migrating voice services onto an IP platform and switching off the PSTN.
