- "Evolution not revolution" brings greatest ROI

Reading, England - A new white paper, released today, gives the first insight to the technical challenges facing mobile telecoms companies and handset manufacturers as license holders struggle toward 3rd Generation (3G) mobile phone services. "GSM to 3G: Evolution or Revolution?" takes a pragmatic look at the technologies and standards proposed by the industry, plotting the best route through the maze.

The paper is jointly authored by Adax, the world's leading supplier of signalling controllers and software that provide the foundation for telecoms networks, and Hughes Software Systems, a leading developer of communication technologies and applications. It is aimed at senior managers within the telcos, offering a jargon-free analysis of migration options.

The complexity of the migration path and the number of intermediate standards is cited as the major challenge. Adding WAP to GSM services is a temporary first step to adding data services that will progress via GPRS, HSCSD and EDGE to true 3G and beyond.

Managers wanting a copy of the white paper should call Adax Europe 0118 946 6203 or HSS Europe at 01908 326272 or visit the respective company web sites
