Perform a total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis to deliver top line growth and bottom line profits
Communication Service Providers need to increase revenue from new services to grow their top line while reducing CapEx and OpEx to improve their bottom line. In a recent in-depth TCO study, ACG Research compared an integrated virtual EPC solution (vEPC) to standalone virtualized solutions components such as DPI, GiLAN services, CGNAT, optimization services and virtual probes. What ACG found was that the integrated vEPC solution offered a significant savings in both CapEx and OpEx over a five-year period.
The challenge for the mobile operators is that past experience and success with 3G and 4G is not necessarily the recipe for success for 5G. Success requires new thinking to unlock the value of current and future networks which means rethinking the mobile core. Affirmed’s integrated cloud solution reduces CapEx by approximately 60% and OpEx by up to 90% according to our study. This is where the success of mobile networks will be won - in the core.”
