Telecom Network APIs 2012 - 2016

Telecom Network APIs capitalize on existing network infrastructure to create a vast array of business opportunities for carriers worldwide. In essence, these APIs allow carriers to disseminate a wealth of internal information or resources to third parties.  This could entail everything from network QoS for video service delivery to Subscriber Data Management (SDM) for advertising and profiling, the goal being to enable third party developers to offer services in return for revenues.
Today nearly 9 % of all Web and 5 % of all mobile applications utilize APIs. This figure is expected to increase to over 68 % by the end of 2016, driven by growing investments from the vendor, developer and the carrier community. As a consequence, the Telecom Network APIs market is expected to account for nearly $ 75 Billion in global revenues worldwide by 2016, growing at a CAGR of 37 % between 2012 and 2016.
