Smart CPE Migration Approach

Smart CPE Migration Approcah

  • The IP network ends at the customer’s premise
  • New CPE has to be installed at the customer
  • The customer has to be informed when the migration is carried out
  • The customer can keep using his old PBX

CO Migration Approach

CO Migration Approach

  • The IP network ends in the exchange or in the box near the customer’s premises
  • A Trunking Gateway has to be installed at the CO or in the street cabinet
  • The customer does not always have to be informed when the migration is carried out
  • The customer can use his old PBX
