Telephony API Growth Expected to Accelerate with Healthy Growth through 2018

Telecom or carrier API transactions are expected to increase significantly over the next five years.  The average volume of API transactions for a Tier 1 wireless carrier will significantly increment over the next five years eventually reaching 160 Billion transactions a month on average.  This is due largely in part to improved economies of scale and scope realized through improved operational support accompanied by a rapidly accelerating customer base.

While the cost of API transactions will slowly reduce overtime, the actual volume of transactions will significantly improve. Mind Commerce estimates that on average a Tier 1 North America or Western European carrier handles an average of 13 Billion API calls a month as of 2012. We expect this figure to significantly increase to nearly 167 Billion by the end of 2018.
