In the “good old days” of telecommunications, network design wasn’t all that difficult. There was a manageable number of technology options available, and the solutions were from reputable long-term providers. New technology emerged at a reasonable, predictable pace enabling network managers to plan and accrue finances. In those days, design and product selection were a matter of balancing current finances with long-term goals.
Today, the migration to IP networks has left many network operators in a precarious position — the potential means to design a solution are many, vendors seem to offer every combination possible, and the level of integration is questionable. The market in general is in a constant state of turmoil, with both traditional and “up and coming” vendors exiting the market and/or abandoning platforms, equipment becoming obsolete before it is fully expensed, and lots of promises being made. If that isn’t enough, the once-secure telecom network has now, with the addition of IP, opened a whole new door to malicious attacks and network-wide failures.
