  4. > The PSTN migration strategies: an update on operator initiatives

The end of the PSTN (and all TDM networking) is inevitable, but not all operators see a need for a proactive and timetable-driven approach to IP transformation. This report looks at the options available, and the rationale for the decisions that have been made.

- This report provides an update on the PSTN/ISDN switch-off strategies of incumbent operators. It looks at the following three subsets of operators.
- Operators that are pursuing an active voice over broadband (VoBB) strategy, whereby end users are migrated onto VoBB with new customer premises equipment (CPE).
- Operators that are pursuing a MSAN-based approach to migration, whereby media gateways are inserted into the network allowing a transparent migration to IP voice in most cases.
- Other operators that have no timetable-driven approach to PSTN/ISDN switch-off.
- The report also provides recommendations for incumbent operators wishing actively to pursue a timetable-driven migration off PSTN/ISDN.
- This report is based on several sources:
- Analysys Mason’s internal research based on operator statements of intent and regulator responses
- discussions with stakeholders in the fixed-line market.
