Overview

Since its inception 8 years ago, the i3forum’s main objective has been to foster and accelerate the industry’s transition to IP/IPX. It is now time to take stock to evaluate and understand where the carrier community stands, what their plans are when it comes to their IP/IPX migration and what would further accelerate their transition so that the i3forum can determine how it can provide additional help.

A survey was conducted by HOT TELECOM and the i3forum to find out the current status of the migration. This report reflects the answers of twenty i3forum carrier members who completed the survey, which was divided in 5 main sections as follows:

Section 1 - General information (demographics)
Section 2 - IP migration status
Section 3 - IP migration strategy
Section 4 - IPX migration status
Section 5 - IPX migration strategy

This report is therefore structured in two main areas. The first part discusses and outlines the results of the survey into the status and strategy of the IP migration.

The second part of the report summaries the results of the questions pertaining to the migration to IPX.
