Posted by IVR Technologies, Inc. | Convergent Billing - VAS


The use of data for voice and messaging has seen a surge in popularity over the past year.

This has led over-the-top (OTT) applications, such as Skype, WhatsApp and WeChat, to consume a large portion of the voice and messaging market.

ABI Research: 5G in 2020 Rare, 5G in 2025 Huge

Posted by IVR Technologies, Inc. | Convergent Billing - VAS


It's perhaps one of the biggest truisms the technology sector contains: everything that is now is at least somewhat overshadowed by what's next. So much so that, in some cases, what's brand new today could be meaningless and obsolete in a matter of months. Those who are into 4G, meanwhile, have little concern about this, according to a new report from ABI Research that suggests that 5G will be a while in coming, but when it shows up, will go over in a big way. The ABI Research report notes that…

An increase in smartphone and tablet use means more Internet use. This in turn, results in more mobile VoIP (mVoIP) use. BYOD policies and a growing availability of…

Posted by IVR Technologies, Inc. | Convergent Billing - VAS


A new report by Juniper Research forecasts carriers to lose up to $14 billion revenue on over the top (OTT) apps in 2014. That’s 26 percent more than last year. The firm found that in some markets, including Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom, carrier revenues had fallen to less than 60 percent of what they’d been five years ago. Not only are these carriers facing lower revenues, they’re also struggling to keep up with the traffic these services generate. There’s an…
