Operator Challenge: As mobile subscribers increasingly adopt powerful new devices such as Android, BlackBerry and iPhone smartphones, as well as the emerging category of media tablets, operators are experiencing explosive traffic growth on their data networks from the use of new voice, messaging, data and video services. To make the most of these potentially lucrative services and avoid competing on price alone, operators must employ a service delivery framework for converged network services that enables interworking and roaming between operators, as well as provides guarantees for quality and service level.
