Why migrate your PSTN services?

PSTN services will support 70 percent of fixed voice users in 2017, according to Infonetics Research. In other words, your legacy PSTN services have the potential to provide value and generate significant revenue for years to come. But your network needs transformation to realize this potential. With an effective PSTN transformation strategy, you can:
