ALBANY, New York, September 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research "VoIP Services (Individual Consumers, Corporate Consumers, Mobile VoIP and Others) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020," the global VoIP services market was valued at USD 70.90 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach USD 136.76 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 9.7% from 2014 to 2020. Europe was the largest revenue contributor to the global VoIP services market in 2013. The Asia Pacific region is expected to be the fastest growing market for VoIP services during the forecast period. The CAGR for revenue generated in this region is expected to be 13.6% from 2014 to 2020, with equivalent growth of subscriber base for VoIP services in the region expected at a CAGR of 14.6% during the same period. The fast increasing adoption of smart portable devices such as tablets and smart phones in the corporate and residential sectors across the globe is the major factor driving the VoIP services market growth.

The VoIP services are cheaper and affordable for both the corporate and individual consumers. Additionally, these services enable the corporate consumers in saving the operational cost incurred on availing the traditional telephony communication services. As a result, several corporate consumers are encouraged to use VoIP services for communication. The corporate consumers segment is further classified on the basis of the type of services offered to these consumers. In 2013, the major contribution in terms of revenue was from the hosted business services offered by the VoIP service providers. This segmented contributed 35.8% of the total revenue generated from the corporate consumers segment. However, in terms of subscriber base the market was led by the managed IP PBX (private branch exchange) services offered to corporate consumers. However, in spite of promising growth signs, the VoIP service providers face challenges due to the lack of infrastructure and limitations of bandwidth allocation in emerging countries, which are crucial for long term growth.

These VoIP services can be provided through different configurations such as computer-to-phone VoIP services, phone-to-phone VoIP services, and computer-to-computer VoIP services. The computer-to-phone VoIP services segment was the largest and accounted for 37.9% of the total subscriber base in 2013. However, the phone-to-phone (Mobile VoIP) configuration is expected to witness healthy revenue growth during the forecast period, recording a CAGR of 14.7% from 2014 - 2020. Moreover, due to increasing smart phone penetration and demand for mobility among the corporate and individual consumers, the market for computer-to-computer VoIP services is expected to show minimum growth, wherein computers (desktops) are gradually being replaced by smart phones and other portable devices.

On the basis of call type, the VoIP services market is segmented into two major categories, namely, international long distance VoIP calls and domestic VoIP calls. In 2013, the international long distance VoIP services segment dominated the market in terms of both, revenue generated and number of subscribers. It is expected to remain dominant throughout the forecast period, with expected rise in revenue market share to 62.3% in 2020. The segment accounted for 54.9% of the total subscriber base for VoIP services in 2013.

Geographically, Europe led the global VoIP services market in 2013, in terms of revenue share and subscriber base, followed by Asia Pacific. However, by end of the forecast period, Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as the leading market, accounting for highest revenue and subscriber base. In 2020, the market size of Asia Pacific is expected to contribute 41.1% and 40.2% in terms of subscribers and revenue respectively. This growth of Asia Pacific is fuelled by increasing awareness about advantages of VoIP services and rising level of quality infrastructure development in the region. This is even attracting global players to further expand their operations in the region offering a competitive product mix. The global market for VoIP services is dominated by major players such as Microsoft Corporation (Skype), Viber Media S.r.l., Ring Central, AT&T, Inc., Sprint Corporation, Avaya, Inc., Vonage Holdings Corporation and 8×8, Inc. among others. The competitive rivalry among these players was intense in 2013 and is expected to remain so throughout the forecast period.

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support.
