This report module provides an economic analysis of the benefits of Gmpls. It begins with a careful explanation of the methodology and major assumptions followed in the construction and running of Pioneer’s proprietary economic model. It then proceeds to analyze model outputs in terms of Opex, Capex and revenue. Finally, net present value is calculated to estimate discounted cash flows from Gmpls in order to simultaneously consider all financial impacts. Summary statistics are provided to aid interpretation of results. Key findings are summarized and major conclusions rendered. Recommendations for carriers are also provided. For any equipment manufacturer considering Gmpls or any network operator seeking to maximize financial performance, the information of this module is indispensable.
