LogiSense, a global usage and subscription based billing solution provider, announced today that Ribbon Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: RBBN), a global leader in secure and intelligent cloud communications, has selected LogiSense to enhance its Service Provider solution portfolio by integrating white label billing and monetization capability into the Kandy Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS).
As noted in this article from McKinsey & Company, just a few years ago, messaging, fixed voice, and mobile voice services from OTT players accounted for 9, 11, and 2 percent of relevant revenue, respectively In the most aggressive scenario, the share of messaging, fixed voice, and mobile voice provided by OTT players could be at 60, 50, and 25 percent, respectively, by 2018 in an all-IP environment. According to Ovum, this will likely result in a drop in spending on traditional communication services by 36 percent over the next ten years, further pushing incumbent telcos to the margins of voice and data provision.
Residential and business users expect their carriers to provide the same level of flexibility and functionality they currently obtain from over-the-top (OTT) applications. Ribbon's Kandy Platform Solutions allow Communication Service Providers (CSP) to extend the reach of their communications services into any device, on any network, and swiftly add real-time communications into any application.
By extending its platform with LogiSense's end-to-end monetization capabilities, Ribbon is able to provide a solution that better enables CSPs to get to market dramatically sooner. It will also support customer centric business models and do so with a much lower cost of ownership by removing the burden on the carrier of having to integrate next generation CPaaS services with their existing billing and customer care infrastructure.
