The Proof is in the Numbers: The Business Case Behind Multiservice Edge Routers
by TeleChoice

 

Abstract:

 

Remember the days when a service providerís stock almost instantaneously spiked up with announcements about new service launches, a new technology deployment initiative, or the purchase of a new equipment platform to support value-added services?

 

Those days are long gone. The market no longer lives and dies by PROMISE or POTENTIAL. In todayís environment, the financial and investor communities put service providers under a high-powered microscope, watching expense and revenue decisions that make immediate impacts on bottom line PROFITABILITY.

 

The intense focus on profitability and accompanying cost containment creates a challenge for service providers. They must have the ability to launch new services and react to competitive threats with minimal additional investment.

 

This document specifically concentrates on the role of multiservice edge routers in improving service provider profitability. In fact, some of these devices were designed and built from the ground up to address profitability through their ability to integrate routing and switching and to support multiple networking protocols and access technologies all in one device.

 

TeleChoice has conducted a study including research, analysis, and quantification of the benefits of deploying multiservice edge routers. This document highlights the following:
