    Value Added & Central Services

  • Xantaro Value Added & Central Services

    The telecommunications industry is evolving rapidly to embrace innovative new applications and services, presenting telcos, service providers and mobile operators with a chance to expand revenue streams. Rather than doing one thing well, providers must expand their portfolios to extract maximum value from their business customers and optimise returns by adding extra services on top of underlying connectivity packages.

    Telecommunications companies, service providers and mobile operators alike must also embrace emerging IP based voice, data, video, messaging, collaboration and mobile technologies if they are to effectively compete with rivals - both incumbents and over the top (OTT) players which have already proved more agile in identifying and exploiting innovative applications and services. The move from circuit-switched, time division multiplex (TDM) networks to an IP orientated architecture needs careful design and planning. Xantaro works with leading vendors to provide expertise in specific technology platforms to support integrated IP voice, video, messaging and collaboration applications.
