Wireless carriers are facing tremendous technological, competitive, and regulatory pressures. Carriers who originally built out their networks on older analog or TDM-based technology are being forced to upgrade to next-generation equipment to offer newer services and integrate with other carriers on a global basis. Price competition is causing many carriers to increase their capital and operational expenses for smaller profits. Finally, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is passing mandates such as E911, local number portability (LNP), and support of wireless data that are increasing the cost of doing business without any guarantees of new revenue streams.
