  • Nine Ways To Get More Value Out Of IPX IPX can reduce connectivity costs, boost service quality and improve the time to implement new services and roaming destinations. Clearly, IPX should have a central role in operators’ strategies to develop and deliver future services. Here are 9 key lessons to guide operators along the path to IPX and equip them to maximise the benefits.
  • Nine Ways To Get More Value Out Of IPX Choose A Quality Network – it’s critical that operators choose and IPX capable of providing the network service levels and resilience to deliver these services, as well as proactively managing the different traffic types Plan for Future Capacity – the growth of roaming data volumes has been considerable over the last few years. Add to that voice, messaging and LTE-based services and the need to plan ahead when deploying IPX is clear. Involve Vendors Early – once an operator has connected and tested a service over IPX, the initial testing process is fundamental to success and enabling infrastructure vendors early is key to this.
  • Nine Ways To Get More Value Out Of IPX Recognise the Value of Community – an IPX is about connecting operators together with each other and with services and applications. When choosing an IPX, operators should consider both the range of services provided and the community of operators connected. Plan Roaming Connectivity At The Same Time as Domestic Roll Out – the success of roaming has set a high bar, with users expecting all home services to be available when roaming from day one. Provided operators build IPX into the deployment plans for new services early on, roaming revenues can be achieved for new services.
  • Nine Ways To Get More Value Out Of IPX Ensure The IPX Service Can Translate Between Systems – IPX is about enabling connectivity and with the rapid roll out of new services this increasingly requires the ability to bring differing implementations of the same service together via multiple switches. An IPX should be able to translate between these switches, ironing out the differences and enabling seamless communications. Choose an IPX with Strong Policy and Access Control – it is vital that operators remain in control of who can access services and what policies are applied to that access. It is therefore essential that an IPX provide clear control of services and does not merely function as a ‘dumb’ pipe connecting the various parties.
  • Nine Ways To Get More Value Out Of IPX Select an ISP with Strong Accounting Capability – as well as enabling connectivity, IPX must also ensure that the revenue streams follow services. Whether connecting data, messaging, voice or other applications, IPX has a key role to place in accounting functions ensuring payment follows the traffic. Consider the Commercial Relationships as well as the Connectivity – when testing IPX connectivity it’s important to plan ahead and select the priority roaming destinations for a service. This enables an IPX to be working on the roll out of an operator’s roaming footprint and significantly shortens the time between the IPX connectivity being completed and the revenues and service benefits delivered.
