Signaling in the Telco Cloud

Signaling refers to establishing, transmitting, controlling and interrupting connectivity (both telephony and internet). Signaling in telco networks have significantly evolved in past two decades.

This research report looks into the history of the evolution of signaling and attempts to identify current market trends and developments related to signaling. The report also includes signaling features in newly released protocols including NG Core System Architecture, Control Plane CIoT Optimization, and Control and User Plane Separation (CUPS), and provides necessary roadmap for telcos to migrate into next generation of signaling
