As legacy TDM networks reach end of life status, coupled with support personnel becoming increasingly scare, service providers are seeking innovative ways to continue supporting legacy TDM services, as well as modern packet services. Since its well-understood that owning and operating parallel legacy TDM and modern packet networks is costly, complex, and ultimately unrealistic, there must be a better way to bridge the old with the new.

Join this webinar to learn how converging legacy and modern packet services onto a common packet-based network simplifies service delivery while reducing costs to retain existing and attract new customers.
