B5: The Road to Network Convergence
2:30-3:45 PM
Room S220

While convergence-like services are offered today, service providers need to gauge when and how network convergence is warranted. When will operators expand convergence offerings beyond voice to more advanced services? What timelines are in place to migrate towards an all-IP core network? Do fixed operators need a mobile asset to be successful in the FMC market? Service providers and network operators offer their insights on the road to full convergence, including what milestones will appear along the way.
