Mobile Operators are facing ever increasing pressures to control investments and manage billing, revenue, assets & resources efficiently. We are always asked to do more with fewer resources.

It is also time efficient as the local deployment time will take at least 1 – 3 months to deploy. He said that Cloud based services can be scaled up or down depending on the requirements.
It is also fully advantageous as no physical resources is required, that is there is no need of servers or switches but only a PC & reliable internet connection is all one needs.
