The multi-access IP edge: Key to delivering FMC

While it may seem slow relative to the number of years it has been talked about, the communications services market is moving inexorably towards fixed mobile convergence of IP-based services.

The case for convergence at the edge of the network to align with convergence at the core and generate a mass market in profitable FMC services is overwhelming. The current trajectory of proliferation in the numbers and types of devices at the edge of the network is unsustainable in the long term.

This white paper outlines different consolidation options for the multi-access IP edge and the requirements of a profitable mass market in converged IP services.
