Accelerate Innovations in the Telecom Industry
The Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (GIA) in their new release ‘Telecom Services: A Global Outlook’ states that the
global telecom services industry would reach a massive $1.8 trillion in three years. This is definitely not surprising
considering the fact that the telecom industry underwent revolutionary changes over the past few decades. For
instance, the past decade witnessed the advent of VoIP, Wi-Fi networks, Smartphones, fixed mobile convergence,
Mobile entertainment, and location-based services via GPS tracking and 2G, 3G, and 4G mobile networks. Thus,
the telecom industry has come a long way from the time when telecom operators generated revenue strictly
through voice communication services.
Today the telecom industry is witnessing dramatic growth as it tries to meet the demands of the modern society.
As a result, a profound part of a carrier’s revenue is generated by value-added services such as mobile content
delivery, LBS for mobile devices, cloud-based PBX, M2M enablement services, and much more.
The telecom industry now includes not only telephone and long-distance but also wireless communications,
Internet services, satellite communications, cable TV systems, and fiber optics networks. Besides, the growing
popularity of Smartphones, tablet PCs, eReaders, netbooks and other portable devices is also driving it forward.
This broadening of the telecom industry has launched the growth of what is now a distinctly large market segment

increase in the expectations of the consumers are swiftly transforming the telecommunications ecosystem. Today
