Service Broker Operator Guide Published by Moriana Group

Analyst Firm Publishes Operator Guide to Help Service Providers Leverage Investments on Legacy Infrastructure and Applications as They Move to Next-Gen Networks

RICHARDSON, TX--(Marketwire - March 25, 2010) - Founding members of the Service Broker Forum today announced the release of a new operator guide, published by the Moriana Group in order to help service providers understand how Service Brokers can help bridge the gap between legacy and next-gen network architectures. The guide, which is available for free, offers recommendations for carriers looking to use Service Brokers to increase ARPU by leveraging previous investments on legacy applications and network architectures as they migrate to NGN and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) environments. The report can be downloaded at www.morianagroup.com.

"As service providers move to advanced NGN architectures, they are faced with the prospect of investing tremendous amounts of time and money on new applications designed specifically to ride on these new network architectures. The value behind Service Brokers is their ability to enable service providers to monetize their networks by not only deploying new services but by also leveraging legacy application deployments over new networks." - Mac Taylor, Founder and CEO, Moriana Group

About Service Brokers

  • A Service Broker is a purpose-built network element that provides carriers with application connectivity, service interaction, network orchestration and support for 3GPP standards. A Service Broker, with its inherent ability to connect multiple legacy voice service platforms to NG/IMS networks, is a cost effective alternative to traditional single-purpose Evolved IN platforms.
  • Service Brokers enable service providers to extend current, revenue generating applications and services to NGN subscribers regardless of which access architecture is chosen.
  • Service Brokers are open, flexible platforms that break vendor "lock-in," and significantly reduce deployment time. Service Brokers are capable of extending new NGN/IP applications to legacy wireless and wireline networks, something Evolved IN solutions cannot do without costly customization.
