Interconnection is the linking of the networks of two or more service providers thus enabling the subscribers on one network to access the subscribers of the other networks. In a multi-operator environment, seamless interconnection is the most important factor that could affect the growth of the industry. The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) estimates that in most telecom environments, at least 60% of all traffic is interconnect.
In today's evolving telecommunications market, operators are looking to save money while making the most of existing investments. Increased competition is forcing operators to focus on customer-facing operations and to allocate their non–core, back-end operations to vendors, which may include outsourcing network management and design.
Network vendors, therefore, have become a key component in operators' day-to-day operations, and can really make a difference. Carriers and vendors have had long relationships, and operators trust vendors to know their gear and how to keep the network running smoothly. As such, more and more carriers are moving toward managed services as a way to do business.
