The Carrier Solution
The next five years signal a period of a global explosion of smartphones and mobile VoIP, Over the Top (OTT) apps. In 2013, 919 million smartphones are expected to ship globally, surpassing feature phones for the first time ever. As the total number of smartphones shipped grows, OTT applications gain more and more popularity around the world. OTT applications drive voice minutes and SMS to data, curtailing carrier revenues. Furthermore, the current fat transmission footprint of SIP-based VoIP clogs spectrum and infrastructure.
Smartphones consume 24 times more data than feature phones, while tablets consume 120 times more data than smartphones. All of which leads to deteriorating network data and call service quality, regardless of the capabilities of the wireless network. More demand for minutes, messaging and data places a severe stress on carrier economics due to customer churn, OTT voice revenue cannibalization, and explosive capital spending requirements.

This frees circuit-switched bandwidth and offers free app-to-app calls or messaging to reduce load on circuit-switched networks. Additional sales drivers include recapturing lost voice and messaging revenue and engaging in profile-based in-app advertising.
