Management for Next-generation Multi-service System Networks

The history of telecommunications management is rife with examples of good technology failing to meet business requirements. Historically, while business has needed management of service definitions, technology has focused on element management, leaving a gap between what is desired and what is possible. If operational expenses are to be lowered, this gap must be closed.

The Convergent Mediation Solution--Competitive Advantage Enabler

The notion of having disparate mediation systems in today’s service oriented telecommunications industry is no longer valid. The accurate and timely knowledge of customer information, such as usage patterns, preferences, spending habits and duration can provide competitive advantages to service providers. Learn about convergent mediation systems that can support multiple service types (voice, data, content) in this white paper.

Boardless Fax Servers in VoIP Environments

Although faxing remains the communications bedrock for countless enterprises, people are now seeking ways to replace outdated fax technology and improve workflow efficiencies. Thus, the lure of converged networks has driven many enterprises to embrace voice-over-Internet protocol (VoIP) technology, and to merge their voice and data networks. In fact, VoIP is the harbinger of sweeping transformations in the communications industry.

Network Engineering to Support the Bandwidth Manager Architecture

Network-level behaviors can impact the determinism of call admission control decisions for a particular bandwidth management deployment. However, different network routing and forwarding models can have different impacts when used in conjunction with the bandwidth manager. We examine these models, considering their ability to provide the deterministic admission control capabilities available within the public switched telephone network (PSTN).

NGN Control Plane Overload and its Management

Given the types of overload scenarios encountered within traditional networks, similar traffic principles requiring overload management will be required within (NGNs). What, then, are the characteristics of overload protection within real-time communications servers? And what types of overload management methods are available for optimizing server performance?
