That success can be measured in terms of customers: Today, nearly 2.5 billion people worldwide are considered active users of mobile networks, with more than 2 billion on networks that use the Global Standard for Mobile communications (GSM) family of technologies. In some countries, such as Algeria, Argentina,India, Kenya and Norway, wireless users far outnumber wireline customers, according to the International Telecommunication Union. 1 Third-Generation (3G) wireless is continuing this success. By the end of 2006, approximately 167 million people worldwide will be customers of 3G networks, according to Strategy Analytics 2 , an independent research firm. By 2010, the 3G user base will top 1 billion, the firm forecasts. 3G also is successful from a business perspective. Although 3G users will account for only one-third of all mobile customers by 2010, they will drive more than half of all wireless revenue, according to Strategy Analytics.The firm’s outlook is based partly on the upcoming launches of 3G in major markets such as Brazil, China, India, Pakistan and Russia. Tellabs ® IntegratedMobile SM Solution:2G and 3G Mobile Solutions for ETSI Markets However, these trends have created challenges for mobile operators, including fierce competition and margin pressure. These challenges typically are reflected in metrics such as Average Revenue Per User (ARPU), percentage of customerturnover (churn) and net additions to the user base (net adds). Mobile operators, investors, press and analysts all focus on these metrics when assessing the operator’s competitive position and outlook.In order to optimize these metrics and improve both their profit margins and competitive positions, mobile operators are increasingly focusing their attention in three areas:  Reduce Capital and Operational Expenses (CapEx and OpEx). By reducing these overhead costs, operators are better able to price their products and services competitively yet profitably. Reduced costs also free up capital to invest in developing new, market-differentiating products and services.  Improve service quality.  High Quality of Service (QoS) is important regardless of the target market or demographics, but it is particularly important if the operator targets enterprises and individual business users. QoS also affects overhead costs because when it is poor, the operator has to spend more to attract and retain customers.  Develop new products and services including a wider range of content, such as multimedia.  A wide range of products and services, including innovative offerings that rivals can’t match, positions an operator to compete on something other than price. Another benefit is that the more ways customers have to communicate, the more they are likely to spend more — further improving the operator’s bottom line.In addition to these three trends, mobile operators increasingly are focused on transport, largely because its costs representup to 25 percent of their leased-line OpEx according to a March 2006 report by Heavy Reading, 3  an independent analyst firm. One way to minimize transport costs while increasing network flexibility is to use 3G build-outs as an opportunity to build their own infrastructure and avoid leased-line expenses. At the same Foreword by Steve McCarthy, Senior Executive Vice President, Tellabs 1  www.itu.int/ITU-D/icteye/Reporting/ShowReport.aspx?ReportName=%2FWTI%2FCellularSubscribersPublic&RP_intYear=2005&RP_intLanguageID=1&ShowReport=true 2  www.strategyanalytics.net/default.aspx?mod=ReportAbstractViewer&a0=3055 3 www.heavyreading.com/details.asp?sku_id=999&skuitem_itemid=880&promo_code=&aff_code=&next_url=%2Fdefault%2Easp%3F Tellabs ® IntegratedMobile SM Solution — 2G and 3G ETSI Solutions Primer 3www.tellabs.com/solutions/integratedmobile/   4 Tellabs ® IntegratedMobile SM Solution — 2G and 3G ETSI Solutions Primerwww.tellabs.com/solutions/integratedmobile/  time, operators can prepare for migration to a packet-based architecture, which achieves bandwidth savings through statistical aggregation of non-voice data services. This migration can be accomplished as slowly or as quickly as the operator desires. For example, some operators may wish to begin an aggressive transition to a network based on Internet Protocol/Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) technology. With IP/MPLS, wireless operators can significantly reduce their transport costs and thus improve both their competitive position and profitability. Other operators may prefer a “grow-into-it” strategy where their first step is to establish an infrastructure of their own to save the leased-line cost and then transition to a packet-centric architecture. The Tellabs ®  IntegratedMobile SM  Solution provides operators with the flexibility to choose the migration model that best fits their needs. The Tellabs IntegratedMobile solution also lets operators leverage Tellabs’ industry leadership in the development of IP/MPLS network technology, as well as the company’s 30-plus years of carrier network design, implementation and support experience. Tellabs’ customer base shows that the company is widely perceived as a leader in telecom throughout the world. Customers include Cingular, Verizon Wireless, Vodafone Hungary, Vodacom South Africa, China Mobile and TeliaSonera. This primer is designed to educate readers on mobile network evolution and the challenges mobile operators face, as well asprovide a comprehensive overview of the Tellabs full-servicemobile portfolio. This primer will also illustrate how easily higher margins can be realized, how quickly revolutionary new revenue-generating services can be introduced, and the key benefits and differentiators of the Tellabs IntegratedMobile solu-tion. Lastly, we’ll demonstrate how the Tellabs IntegratedMobile solution can empower mobile operators to expand the scope of their network while reducing the number and complexity of network elements and the corresponding OpEx and CapEx that negatively impact profits. Executive Summary For mobile operators, the evolution to 3G brings challenges and opportunities. Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS), High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) and High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) enable an almost limitless range of new voice, data and multimedia services, providing operators with additional revenue streams, new market differentiators and the opportunity to compete on services rather than on price alone. But the evolution to 3G also means increased spending on transport to accommodate new bandwidth-intensive services. The evolution also includes a period of at least a few years when operators must support both 2G and 3G customers, services and infrastructure simultaneously. That overlap increases cost and complexity, which make it difficult for mobile operators to price their 2G and 3G services competitively yet profitably. But savvy mobile operators recognize that these challenges can be turned into opportunities. For example, by using 3G evolution as the opportunity to redesign networks around a packet-oriented architecture, mobile operators can begin reducing overhead costs today while setting the stage for tomorrow’s technologies, including IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). The Tellabs IntegratedMobile solution meets these and other challenges with a full-service portfolio of products and services specifically designed for the mobile market. This solution empowers mobile operators to reduce OpEx and CapEx, improve service quality and develop alternative products and services to deliver exciting new revenue-generating content. The Tellabs Integrated Mobile solution includes industry-leading hardware, software, engineering and support services that have been validated time and again in some of the largest carrier networks in the world. With major deployments in more than 150 mobile networks worldwide, along with strong cooperation and joint development with leading mobile infrastructure vendors, Tellabs is a leader in the development of mobile communication technology. The Evolving Mobile Market GSM is a dominant, worldwide standard. As of August 2006, more than 2 billion people — 29% of the world’s population — were customers of GSM-based networks, including UMTS, according to the GSM Association. 4  That is approximately 82% of all mobile users, making the GSM family of technologies the world’s de facto wireless standard.GSM’s customer growth has significantly increased over the past few years. Although GSM took 12 years to amass 1 billion customers by early 2004, it took only 30 months to pass 2 billion by mid-2006. One drawback to this growth rate and penetration is that some markets are becoming saturated. For example, wireless pen-etration is 91% in Australia and 96% in Germany, according to ITU research. 5  In some countries, such as Singapore, Israel and the United Kingdom, penetration has hit 100% (see Figure 1). 4  www.gsmworld.com/news/statistics/index.shtml 5  www.itu.int/ITU-D/icteye/Reporting/ShowReport.aspx?ReportName=%2FWTI%2FCellularSubscribersPublic&RP_intYear=2005&RP_intLanguageID=1&ShowReport=true
