Telecommunications capability: Not the way we have always done it
Conclusion: Telecommunications services and the supporting infrastructure have historically been complex, costly and difficult to change. The modern technology landscape now allows for greater flexibility in the design of networks, and the telecommunications services of voice, video and data they deliver.
The use of software defined networking (SDN), Cloud-based standard operating environments (SOE) with unified communications (UC) and Cloud-based call centre solutions are now mature, secure and commonplace in the market.
These changes with the significantly reduced cost of physical connectivity (lines and links), which are now viewed as a commodity, enable the telecommunications landscape to be agile to each organisation’s business needs and delivered at greatly reduced costs.
