  9. 9. Slide 9 Evolution of SS7 Infrastructure (1) • SS7 infrastructure market is still growing ($8.5B by 2012) – CAGR of 3.6% throughout period 8704,1 – Expansion in China, India, MEA 9000 8477,2 8250,3 7971,4 8000 7692,5 – Flat in NA and Europe 7161,1 7380,8 7000 6000 • SS7 infrastructure includes the 5000 Networks Elements deployed 4000 by Service Providers 3000 – 2G/3G MSCs, HLRs and SMSCs 2000 – Wireline SSPs 1000 – STPs 0 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 – SS7 Gateways Global Market of SS7 Network Elements ($B) – SS7 & Application Platforms (Source: VDC, April 2008)
  10. 10. Slide 10 Evolution of SS7 Infrastructure (2) • Top 3 growing SS7 elements – Signaling Gateways 9% – SMS Centers 8% – MSCs 6% 4% 4% • Main drivers 2% – Migration to IP – Signaling Gateways enable Carriers to add NG elements SS7 Gw SMSC MSC STP HLR Platform SSP -1% into their legacy SS7 networks 2006-2012 SS7 Network Elements Growth Rates – Continuing expansion of SMS (Source: VDC, April 2008) drives demand for SMSC and MSC
  11. 11. Slide 11 Why SS7 / SIGTRAN? • Service Continuity – New applications & networks need connectivity to existing deployed circuit switched networks • Amortized & Proven Technology – SS7 network backbones still deployed in developing regions • Wireless Subscriber Growth – 2G / 3G networks largely deployed on SS7 backbones • Cost Reduction – Leveraging IP to reduce network OPEX and CAPEX
  12. 12. Slide 12 Telecom Networks & SS7 Applications IP Network Fixed Network SS7 SS7 SS7 SS7 SS7 SS7 SS7 SS7 SS7 SS7 Wireless Network
  13. 13. Slide 13 Scenarios for SIGTRAN Adoption • New Generation of Traditional SS7 Equipment – Wireline and 2G Wireless Networks – Upgrades and new deployments – (internal) IP-based architecture • STP, SSP (Class 4/5, MSC), SCP, Service Node – (external) IP environment • STP, SCP, HLR, SMS-C, SGSN • Equipment for IP Networks – Wireline and Wireless (2G and 3G) – New deployments – NG Networks • IP MG, Softswitch – 3G Wireless Networks • CS-MGW, MSC-Server, IM-MGW, MGCF
  14. 14. Slide 14 Key Growth Applications • Value Added Services (VAS) – SMS / MMS, Location, Presence, Ringtones, etc. • Rebirth of IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) – IMS critical for Next Gen Mobile – Service Continuity – Voice over LTE
  15. 15. Slide 15 The VAS Opportunity • Mobile messaging = $102B market today – SMS, MMS, E-Mail, IM – Other VAS: gaming, music, TV, navigation, search, marketing, stock trading, payment • Source of ARPU growth in dev markets – China MVAS over $22BM in 2009* – India MVAS over $5B in 2009 – 2010* • Low investment with high returns – Leans on existing network infrastructure – SS7 / SIGTRAN is the tap for VAS providers *Sources: Research & Research (2010), IResearch (2009)
  16. 16. Slide 16 Network Elements Used in VAS SS7 / SIGTRAN Transport used in Critical VAS Network Elements Messaging Enablement Location, Subscriber, Billing Enforcement
  17. 17. Slide 17 The IMS Opportunity • IMS Suffered the Hype Cycle – A concept without an application – Next generation mobile is the application • Service Continuity over NGNM – VAS / IN porting to new mobile core / RAN • LTE OneVoice Initiative – Specific IMS “profile” for delivering VoLTE • GSMA -endorsed – Support from almost every major operator worldwide • 3 Group, AT&T, Bell Canada, China Mobile, NTTDoCoMo, TeliaSonera, Verizon, Vodafone …

  19. 19. Slide 19 SS7 / SIGTRAN Offerings • Solutions for the low protocol layers – SS7 Boards • Hardware + MTP1-2 protocols – SIGTRAN Protocol Stacks • SCTP + Adaptation layers => to build Signaling Gateways – Signaling Gateways • SS7 boards + SIGTRAN protocols + NIF + HA and management, in a fully- packaged appliance • Solutions for the upper layers (for SS7 and SIGTRAN) – Protocol Stacks • MTP3 to User/Application Parts (ISUP, MAP, INAP, etc) => to build endpoints – SS7 Board+Stack packages • Pre-integrated solutions – Signaling Servers • Front-end units, including boards, protocols & interface to back-end systems
  20. 20. Slide 20 Trends in SS7 Technology Demand • Off-The-Shelf SS7 solutions – Especially from Tier 1 TEMs – With higher level of integration • PCI-Express interface – But demand for PCI/PCI-X solutions still strong • Low-Profile add-on cards – Market split between LP and FH – Technical challenge for high-density cards • Solutions for ATCA/µTCA systems (telco apps) – SS7 AdvancedMC modules (AMC) – Demand for IP-based Host/Module interface • Higher T1/E1 port density – 2 ports  4 ports  now 8 ports per SS7 module • Mixed Media Interface & SS7 solutions – e.g., with I-TDM (ATCA systems) or raw data mode (HMP on rack-mount servers)
