  • 1. A Brave, New, All-IP World SAP Mobile Services, Operator Guide 2013 Elena Sacco, Chairman, IWG GSMA & Senior Interconnect Manager, TIM
  • 2. A Brave, New, All-IP World An open and flexible model for service exchange will be part of the critical path the industry will travel in order to implement Voice over IP (VoIP).
  • 3. A Brave, New, All-IP World IP eXchange, or IPX, is the industry standard solution to solve the interconnect problem by setting out common specifications for end-to-end IP traffic delivery and quality of service. On the market there is a high level of awareness and interest in IPX. However, there is currently a low level of demand for IPX services due to the low number of IP inter-connections between operators on the market. This is because mobile operators are not yet launching IP data services on a large scale. But this is changing.
  • 4. A Brave, New, All-IP World A chicken-and-egg situation? To understand the hold-up, it’s important to understand the dynamics at play. VoIP services are expected to drive the move to an all-IP environment that will stimulate the use of IPX. However, several factors are slowing the evolutionary path of mobile operators towards offering VoIP services. These include:   The existence of VoIP services offered by non-telecom players   The high cost of LTE implementation   The availability of LTE devices
  • 5. A Brave, New, All-IP World Driving demand for IPX deployment If VoIP services may not be considered the imminent driver of IPX deployment on a large scale, data services requiring a guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) might. LTE Roaming is the perfect example. IPX would be the essential enabler, being the only current solution for a QoS guaranteed IP inter- connection able to ensure proper traffic exchange between different players in the market.
  • 6. A Brave, New, All-IP World Peering matters When it comes to IPX, peering among IPX providers is an essential element because it enables global reachability. Peering enables general interoperability of services on IPX between operators and multiple connections. It also enables the offering of data services on IPX at a high QoS and, above all, the migration of voice services over IP.
  • 7. A Brave, New, All-IP World The move to an all-IP world doesn’t only present operators with a world of opportunities. There is also the increased competition from alternative service providers. Clearly, the big question is how to implement a proper interconnection with these parties and find a model that properly compensates all the players in the value chain.
