This article explains why carriers are buying their "next generation" equipment from their longtime equipment suppliers. In April 2005, British Telecom named its 21st Century Network preferred equipment vendor selection. BT is one of the first incumbent carriers to begin replacing its traditional Public Switched Telephone Network infrastructure with a converged multimedia next-generation network. Another big win for incumbent equipment suppliers was recently announced by China Telecom. The ChinaNet Next Carrying Network, referred to as CN2, is China Telecom's next-generation network. The evolution of global equipment suppliers discussed. The effects of globalization and offshoring on the telecommunication industry are also discussed in this article.
