Telecom Network API Marketplace: Strategy, Ecosystem, Players and Forecasts 2014 - 2019

http://www.reportbuyer.com/telecoms/data/telecom_network_api_marketplace_strategy_ecosystem_players_forecasts_2013_2018.html

Overview:

While a significant portion of the digital media ecosystem is yet to recognize the strategic importance of Application Programming Interface (API) as a means of accessing data for a variety of applications, Telecom API play a critical role in network operator strategy for support of business-to-business (B2B) services.
Telecom Network APIs capitalize on existing network infrastructure to create a vast array of business opportunities for carriers worldwide to offer B2B services in a Data as a Service (DaaS) basis, which represents a fast growing secondary and revenue stream.

Telecom APIs allow carriers to disseminate a wealth of internal information or resources to third parties on an asymmetric basis as the network operators typically do not provides services to the end-users. Instead, network operators offer API for DaaS in an arms-length manner for B2B to Business (B2B2B) and B2B to Consumers (B2B2C) services. Carrier customers include Aggregators and Over-the-Top (OTT) providers as well as direct to enterprise customers. Data accessed includes everything from network QoS for video service delivery to Subscriber Data Management (SDM) for advertising, profiling, and identity management.
