With the modernization of networks accelerating heading into 2018, the promise of more open technologies and more orchestrated ecosystems has become a reality for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) who are now able to spin up, deliver, bill for and manage new services faster and more efficiently than ever.
The Internet of Things (IoT) as a stand-alone world of connections without question will continue to grow and make machines more efficient, make the production of goods less expensive, make our energy grid more reliable, our environment more sustainable, and our cities safer.
Why is the communications platform market so hot right now? Why was Twilio one of only a few successful IPOs this year? Why are companies like Cisco and Vonage acquiring communications platforms? The answers to these questions are simple. Because Communications Service Providers (CSPs) especially see the value that communications platforms can bring – the ability to give mobile and web developers access to real-time communications services and embed these capabilities directly into workflows and mobile apps simplifies and enhances the user experience.
When I joined GENBAND in early 2015 I had firsthand knowledge of the innovation that was taking place at the company and that’s one of the things that made the organization so attractive to me. I’ve known David Walsh, our CEO, for many years and I know that he is fully committed to anticipating our customers’ needs and delivering the solutions and services that help them compete and maintain their dominant position in the communications industry. Staking out leadership positions across this dynamic landscape is part of our DNA.
