Typically all these services were offered by different companies. The players are searching for new revenue stream in each other's traditional markets. As a result service providers had to start the consolidation process to begin utilizing the same common infrastructure for all customers, all networks and all types of data. This has put a lot of burden on the network itself as it needed to become aware of all possible services and provides guarantee for each service from plane internet connectivity, to video delivery, etc..." commented Mr. Michel Atallah, Technical Manager, Levant at BMB.
