SAP Mobile Services: The value of a true IPX

  1. 1. The Value Of A True IPX SAP Mobile Services, Operator Guide 2013 William Dudley& John Candish, SAP Mobile Services
  2. 2. The Value Of A True IPX IPX is fundamentally about building a connected community of telecom operators, services and applications. Being able to guarantee quality of experience and keep costs under control are key requirements for the mobile operators.
  3. 3. The Value Of A True IPX
  4. 4. The Value Of A True IPX The features of a great IPX An IPX needs to deliver the full range of services, ranging from the basics that include data roaming, messaging and voice, to LTE-based multimedia services, to applications such as OTT services. Once operators are able to offer the full range of services through an IPX, they can leverage the benefits and economies of scale that IPX delivers.
  5. 5. The Value Of A True IPX Strong and capable An IPX should be strong in all areas, not just basic services like voice or 3G data roaming. While the underlying network quality is clearly key to an IPX, the services provided are no less significant.
  6. 6. The Value Of A True IPX Data roaming Quality data roaming (specifically 3G roaming or GRX) depends on the community of mobile operators connected to an IPX. This is not just about the number of mobile operators connected to an IPX. It’s about which mobile operators are connected.
  7. 7. The Value Of A True IPX Messaging The ability to leverage the benefits of an IPX to route SMS (and MMS) messaging traffic to mobile operator hubs is becoming paramount. The resiliency of an underlying MPLS network provides multiple benefits over VPNs (for SMPP) and direct SS7-cloud reach.
  8. 8. The Value Of A True IPX Voice interconnectivity Customers and providers are connected to create an on-net community of IPX Voice. This allows for all parties to maintain full control over the quality and routing of voice calls end-to-end, whilst also achieving full transparency between the partners regarding transit and termination charges. Of course, voice destinations may now include VoIP or OTT Voice providers as well as fixed networks. IPX Voice is by no means just limited to mobile operators.
  9. 9. The Value Of A True IPX LTE When LTE services are deployed, customers will expect the ability to roam to other LTE networks to be supported from day one. IPX can deliver a one-stop solution for LTE services, managing end-to-end connectivity and quality. By leveraging an IPX Diameter hubbing service, operators can rapidly achieve roaming relationships for LTE data services and mobile broadband. The IPX enables connectivity between LTE networks, delivering subscribers virtually the same services and quality of service while they are roaming that they know from their home network.
  10. 10. The Value Of A True IPX Applications and OTT services With IPX there will be no need to set up dedicated connections and policies for each service, nor will it be necessary to manage the capacity of each separately. Going forward, these services will likely include other advanced mobile capabilities that leverage existing models like voice connectivity or interworking (such as Diameter or Messaging), and for services including but not limited to - RCS and IMS.
  11. 11. The Value Of A True IPX For mobile operators, the choice of IPX provider should not just be decided with a view to the handful of services they are required to deliver today. It should be based on an understanding of their long-term needs.
