Accenture IP migration services: Services overview

IP Migration Services help clients maintain business model flexibility, increase wireline competitiveness and generate financial and operational benefits.


In order to reduce network operating costs and generate increased annual revenue per user (ARPU), communications service providers are increasingly seeking new approaches to optimize their network investment. Accelerated migrations offer opportunities to optimize both network performance and the operating model, improving organizational agility while reducing cost and enhancing cross-organization alignment.
