The wireless telecommunications market is rapidly expanding, fueled by convergence in the consumer segment, and increased wireless integration in the enterprise segment. At the same time, conventional voice services are being commoditized, resulting in stable or declining voice ARPU (average revenue per user) for most operators, especially in developed markets. Thus, operators are looking to advanced and rich data services to help spur revenue growth. To support such data services, operators are fast realizing that they must look beyond their 2G/2.5G networks for long-term, cost-effective and proven solutions.
