IPX Competitive analysis 2017

2017 marks the 10th year anniversary of the creation of the IPX concept by the GSMA. How time flies when you are having fun! A decade on and a lot has happened, but the question that begs to be answered is: Has IPX really delivered on its promises?

Now 10 years on, what is the reality? We can say thatalthough the road to a global IPX has been a difficult and slow one, the global IPX platform is now fully operational and supports the full suite of basic voice, data and signalling IP services.

Through the course of this 111 page report, we cover the capabilities and service features offered by the IPX providers, providing a detailed picture of the current status of the marketplace with facts and analysis. We also detail our expectations relating to the future developments of IPX.
