a division of Bandwidth and the leading choice for innovative and
scalable voice, 9-1-1 and SMS solutions, today announced the results of
a new survey it commissioned from research firm ATLANTIC-ACM
to better understand the disruptive factors and trends U.S. wholesale
voice buyers think will most impact their businesses.
End of the (Land) Line
Specifically, the survey revealed the dramatic changes in how service
providers will offer - and end-users will consume - telephony services.
Key findings tied to disruption in the communication services market
APIs for Phone ServicesThe ATLANTIC-ACM survey also
revealed the availability of application programming interfaces (APIs)
increases respondents' interest to work with a given wholesale provider.
In addition, the influence of APIs is particularly evident among those
who plan to increase their spending in the coming year, indicating that
more businesses are looking to integrate voice services directly into
their end-user applications or services.
"A growing number of our wholesale voice buyers are going beyond selling
dial-tone by using our APIs to embed voice and SMS services into their
end-user offerings. They are breaking new ground by developing
'over-the-top app' for IP-enabled mobile devices, call analytics
purposes, rich media, social networks, limited only by their
imagination," said Steve Leonard, executive vice president and general
manager of Bandwidth's inetwork division. "The survey results prove that
the 'phone' as we know it, and the telecom industry in general, are
pushing the boundaries into an entirely new phase - one that inetwork is
uniquely positioned to support."
