[VoiceOps] Multi Tenant Commercial Softswitch Besides Broadsoft

I've used mobile data heavily since 2002. And I've never seen it switch 
IPs based on towers. The only time I see it change (other than while 
roaming) is usually if you go from 1xRTT to 3G, or 3G to 4G (and that 
last part varies depending on whether you're using 3G in a 4G enabled 
area, which doesn't typically switch IPs) (that's CDMA centric, but my 
experience was similar with GSM (CSD/EDGE/HSDPA/LTE). Of course, 
Nextel's packetstream service never changed IPs (in mid session, anyway) 
for the most part that I can remember, but that was 12 years ago and who 
knows, my memory could be fuzzy here. I think they actually would end up 
changing IPs if you roamed to a different nextel region (there were 
several that I can recall)

I have had very few problems maintaining long term data connections over 
cellular networks over the years, at least not ones related to something 
other than signal reception or changes in what region of the network you 
were in, or what access technology was being used by the handset or device).
