Rich Communications Services (RCS) Market 2013 - 2018: Global Industry Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast Research Report Available Online By ResearchMoz

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Albany, NY (PRWEB) October 22, 2013 RCS represents the first LTE-enabled value-added service (VAS) application for carriers.

There are some pre-Voice over LTE (VoLTE) options, and a migration path for RCS that is pre-IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), but we ultimately see RCS adding most value with ubiquitous VoLTE coverage and IMS integration. We also see significant value via open API integration for various VAS applications focused on RCS. One of those applications is the so called Corporate or Enterprise Dashboard, which provides a key application for the carriers most valued customers.


This report provides analysis of the RCS market drivers, technical issues, forecast and future outlook. It is must reading for any company focused on monetizing LTE, IMS, and integrating VAS with carriers in a next generation IP environment.

Key Findings:    •  Forecast for RCS revenue from 2013 - 2018 representing incremental revenue.

   •  Presence, location, and API integration will key enablers of VAS applications for RCS.

   •  RCS represents arguably the first true LTE-based VAS application that carriers must deploy.

   •  Facing price erosion of core services (voice and data), carriers must deploy their own VAS applications.

   •  RCS lite represents a market entry strategy as a precursor to IMS deployment and integration for RCS-e.

   •  RCS provides the ability for a corporate entity to allow their employees to customize their own mobile experience via the RCS interface.

   •  Compared to all other applications, RCS is arguably the one that affords the incumbent network operators with the best opportunity to prevent them from becoming a so-called "dumb pipe". Target Audience:    •  Mobile network operators    •  Value-added service providers    •  Wireless device manufacturers    •  Telecom infrastructure providers    •  API providers and management companies    •  Content providers and commerce companies    •  LTE and IP Multimedia Subsystem integrators Browse other reports by Mind Commerce Publishing - http://www.researchmoz.us/publisher/mind-commerce-publishing-4.html.

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
