Voice continues to be the main source of revenue for the mobile industry. Last year, revenues totaled 350 billion euros, a figure expected to grow by more than 100 billion euros within the next five years. The industry is also demanding OPEX savings as well as new services to boost voice business.
With the Nokia MSC Server system or MSC and the new Enriched Voice Services, Nokia is helping operators boost revenues. Electronic Prepaid Refill (eRefill) eliminates the need for printed vouchers for prepaid services and this keeps users talking and helps operators manage prepaid subscribers more cost-effectively.
Nokia Push to talk over Cellular offers a direct one-to-one or one-to-many voice communication service in GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks and new opportunities for voice business. Several operators will launch commercial push to talk services during 2004.
In 3G WCDMA networks, the service with the potential for rapid uptake will be Circuit-Switched Video Telephony. An investment in the Nokia Video Telephony solution today is protected in the long term, because the same gateway platform can be used when introducing packet-switched video services.
For enterprises, the high cost of leasing PBXs seems increasingly unnecessary when measured against the lower cost of using a single infrastructure for all main voice services. The Nokia Mobile Business Voice solution provides the operator's enterprise customers with a proven solution for migrating to full voice mobility, achieving greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
