From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Feb 10 2016

Over the top (OTT) messaging leaders are rapidly evolving their key mobile messaging application interfaces to new voice and video communications, with revenue dilution implications for carriers worldwide. The progress made in mobile IP voice and video this year alone from key OTT players such as Facebook and Google is a clear indication of heightened mobile communications competitive pressure from these new players in 2016 and beyond. Operator have picked up the pace with the deployment of new digital communications technologies such as VoLTE ,Wi-Fi Calling and WebRTC. Despite its slow growth to date, Rich Communications Services (RCS) may turn out to be mobile operators' best-bet in offsetting the OTT competition, supported by large industry partners. Few carriers are giving enough thought to the B2B2C opportunities implicit in WebRTC and far too many continue to view the technology as a threat to their existing calling business, as opposed to an opportunity for external monetization. We believe that provisioning easy-to-access developer tools and WebRTC APIs for in-browser communications has the potential to revolutionize the carrier wholesale business on a whole new digital level.
