Colombo, Sri Lanka, 7-10 April Continuity - Fixed Mobile Convergence MOBILE NETWORK MSC HLR /VLR FIXED / WIRELINE NETWORK WiFi/GSM Dual Mode Handset EXISTING SOFTSWITCH EXISTING MEDIA GATEWAY PSTN/PLMN NETWORK SS7 NETWORK Inter-Roaming between WiFi domain and mobile network CS (Call Server) SG (Signaling Gateway) SLR (Subs Location Regiser) PSC (Processing Server for CDR) MAP over SS7
Colombo, Sri Lanka, 7-10 April Solution fit for different Operators MNO (e.g. Cingular, Sprint) Improve the mobile coverage with low cost WiFi- Residential / Enterprise / Public hotspot Partner with Cable/Fixed Op to offer total package- Triple or Quadra-play NGN Operator (e.g. Vonage) Enhance their current offerings with mobile capability Partner with MNO as whole sell (MVNO) or roaming Integrated Service Provider (e.g. Brazil Telecom) In-house Mobile and Fixed line operation FMC allows them to use fixed line infrastructure to offer mobile service The combined infrastructure provides lower OPEX ratio comparing with pure MNO Cable Operators (e.g. GCI, Comcast) Partner with MNO to offer FMC Natural extension from Triple-play to Quadra-play – Voice, Data, TV/Video, Mobile FMC-Enabler (e.g. VeriSign) Host equipment and provide FMC backend capability to other NGN, MNO operators Work with multiple small/tier 2/3 operators – Don t acquire FMC subs directly
Colombo, Sri Lanka, 7-10 April FMC Solution Advantage – Service Provider Perspective Converged service infrastructure by consolidating the voice services between the fixed and mobile networks Mobile coverage (GSM, CDMA) – Offering mobility, convenience and ubiquity Wi-Fi SIP over broadband – Offer better quality, lower cost and feature rich capabilities Enhancement of Service Quality Stimulates the new service opportunities to increase ARPU Capability to quickly include value added services - VMS, SMS, CRBT, FMFM, Centrex.. Provides the service differentiators and creates the service stickiness to lower the churn rate Reduction in CAPEX/OPEX by offloading the traffic from cellular to WLAN and spending less on infrastructure buildout Single set of user credentials Using GSM IMSI method authentication for both networks simplifying the user management System Reliability and Scalability backed by Real Deployment Based on the proven NGN (mSwitch) platform (and its IP core) The single mSwitch solution implementation serves over 2.1 m subscribers Architecture compliant with 3G/IMS Future-proof via open standards
Colombo, Sri Lanka, 7-10 April FMC Solution Advantage- User Perspective FMC enable users to access their voice and data services transparently, regardless of their location, device, or network-access method One Number and One Phone service WiFi SIP or GSM/CDMA coverage The user will be able to initiate and terminate calls at any place Seamless Roaming The user will have non-interrupted call sessions when moving from one network to another Uniform and consistent service accessibility & behavior independent of access especially attractive for enterprise users to extend corporate VPN to cellular networks. Reduced monthly charges & convenience of a single bill Simplified and Unified service plans and payment schemes. A single always reachable phone number (Option for dual number) Availability of new services e.g. IM, Unified VM, SMS, Unified phone book, CRBT ….
Colombo, Sri Lanka, 7-10 April FMC Value Proposition ValueConsumersEnterprises Price Reduce/Simplify monthly bill Free WiFi Calling Consolidate/Reduce service plans for better volume Route calls free via PBX/VPN Convenience Simplified service plan Same number everywhere Single always-on number Same phonebook everywhere Quality No more missed calls when out of range No more garbled or dropped calls inside buildings Advanced Features IM everywhere Instant conferencing Fast music downloads Mobile desktop Abbreviated dialing everywhere Fast file transfer everywhere Service providers can now: Reduce churn by providing single number NGN & wireless service to customers Increase stickiness through advanced services Generate new revenue through supporting roaming agreements Future-proof via open standards Maintain a single cost-optimized network infrastructure
Colombo, Sri Lanka, 7-10 April No Impact to Existing Networks To Existing NGN Networks: A functional module addition to the existing SoftSwitch and backend application Able to use the existing NGN for call processing and routing Normal NGN users are still served by existing infrastructure Zero impact of the FS addition All (home/visiting) FMC users will be served by the FMC-FS Registration, authentication, roaming, call processing, handover FMC-FS requires access to FMC user profile data HSS (Home Subscriber Server) model of IMS To Existing GSM Networks: GSM Homed FMC users appear to be regular GSM users NGN Homed FMC users appear to be visiting GSM users FMC-FS uses standard roaming Interface to the GSM Network

Colombo, Sri Lanka, 7-10 April PSTN to NGN Migration Case Study Background A leading tier 1 carrier in Philippine Owning 2m fixed & 22m GSM mobile customers as of Q A public company listed in NYSE Total market cap of US$7.8B as of Sept 2006 Total revenue US$2.5B in last 4 quarters EBITDA US$1.6B in last 4 quarters Operating margin 37% A fast growing service provider in Asia Provides fixed line, GSM mobile and broadband data service to both residential and enterprise customers Problem Statement How to sustain and grow the fixed line service? Lots of population without telephone service Lots of business users demand more service How to increase the ARPU leveraging NGN/IMS? IPTV? FMC? Triple-play? Quadrupled-Play? How to lower the OPEX? Real estate expense in the big metropolitan area? Power consumption? Human resource required for operation? How to manage EOL/EOS of the aged TDM switches? The cost of maintaining is unbalance with the cost of buying new
Colombo, Sri Lanka, 7-10 April UTStarcom Solution PSTN Emulation Subsystem – PES Provide services to green-field customers Replace the existing TDM switch – total 7 models in place mSwitch as the core SoftSwitch + Gateways + Backend office applications iAN8000 as the access Combination of DSL, DLC and VoIP AG Foundation for FMC and IPTV in the future Phase 1: Started with 150K NGN lines capacity Network installation and migration planning for 3 months First TDM switch replacement/migration in March 2006 Adding customer via both old switch migration and green field expansion Service extension to Centrex Targeting under served enterprise customers Phase 2: Network expansion to total of 500K NGN lines Contract signed in later 2006 Network fully deployed Phase 3: Planning for total of 1.5M NGN lines in 2008 Total 5m NGN lines planned in next 3 – 5 years 150+ CO sites replaced by 3 NGN SS sites
Colombo, Sri Lanka, 7-10 April Migration Benefits CAPEX Savings Central Office (CO) consolidation Simpler network with fewer types and pieces of equipment OPEX Cost Savings- 80% Operation and Maintenance cost reduction Reduced power consumption- 94% (Reduced air-conditioning requirements) Faster provisioning of services Floor Space Savings- 92% Reduced space requirements Consolidation of cabinet areas Improvement in time-to-market for new services- 90% Faster introduction of new services Increase in Revenues EOL management End of support to critical TDM components- High cost of vendor support Stop manufacturing of components Salvage components to support in-house repair of modules when they run out of spares.
