Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5mt4pc/telecom_network) has announced the addition of the "Telecom Network API Marketplace: Strategy, Ecosystem, Players and Forecasts 2014 - 2019" report to their offering.
While a significant portion of the digital media ecosystem is yet to recognize the strategic importance of Application Programming Interface (API) as a means of accessing data for a variety of applications, Telecom API play a critical role in network operator strategy for support of business-to-business (B2B) services.
Telecom Network APIs capitalize on existing network infrastructure to create a vast array of business opportunities for carriers worldwide to offer B2B services in a Data as a Service (DaaS) basis, which represents a fast growing secondary and revenue stream.
Telecom APIs allow carriers to disseminate a wealth of internal information or resources to third parties on an asymmetric basis as the network operators typically do not provides services to the end-users. Instead, network operators offer API for DaaS in an arms-length manner for B2B to Business (B2B2B) and B2B to Consumers (B2B2C) services. Carrier customers include Aggregators and Over-the-Top (OTT) providers as well as direct to enterprise customers.
