Telecom infrastructure development is moving into a third phase of infrastructure development: the shift to pre-integrated systems that include high availability middleware, protocol stacks, unified management, and hardware platforms. These systems offer a quick path to market since the equipment manufacturer develops only the application that runs on the system.

The first phase of infrastructure development had telecom equipment manufacturers (TEM) using a vertically-integrated approach. The second phase was marked by a shift to the commercial off the shelf (COTS) model where the individual blades and software modules are procured from different vendors and integrated together by the TEM. The desire for even quicker time-to-market has given rise to a third model, the pre-integrated system. These systems feature a comprehensive software stack built on a standards-based hardware platform, designed and tuned for particular network elements. This article discusses some strategies to ensure that the time-to-market advantage is preserved.
