Softswitches Provide the Backbone for the Next-Generation Network

Circuit switching, which has characterized the public
switched telephone network for the last century is giving
way to packet switching in the Next-Generation
Network. This burgeoning network, which will use cost-
effective Internet protocol (IP) technologies, will rely on open-standard software switches —softswitches— to
integrate voice data, and video while executing protocol
translations between separate networks. As enterprises and carriers continue to migrate toward IP networks, the markets for softswitches are expected to see tremendous growth. This Frost & Sullivan research evaluates the emerging markets for softswitches and includes in-depth assessments of technological trends. By highlighting new opportunities and pinpointing winning strategies, this study can help your company capitalize on a lucrative field.
