This report paints a picture of the future of the voice market as 3G and VoIP services take their toll on fixed-voice revenues. She looks at the potential for cost savings from migration to VoIP in the core and access networks and calculates the business cases for these compared with maintaining a TDM network.

The strategic consequences of network migration are analysed from the points of view of the incumbent operators, competing operators and mobile operators.
The report includes forecasts of the overall market sizes for both fixed and mobile voice and compares the business case for maintaining a traditional voice network with those for:
-- Migrating a core Class 4 voice network to VoIP and IP multi-protocol label switching (MPLS)
