In September 2012, Heavy Reading launched a comprehensive custom Diameter market study research project. This exclusive research project included a global survey of more than 35 questions, capturing insights from 79 telecom professionals working for mobile operators across all regions. The study was augmented with 6 one-on one-interviews with senior telecom staff and executives to gain additional insight into key findings and trends noted in the survey. The driving force of the project was to capture the impact of Diameter signaling, both on a short-term and long-term basis, examining services drivers and preferred architectures.
This market study report presents an excerpt of the key findings, specifically those associated with market and services drivers.
