For carriers, the next five years signal a period of a global explosion of smart devices and mobile VoIP from 3rd party Over the Top (OTT) apps operating on their networks. In 2016, 3.9 billion smart devices were active around the world. As the total number of smart devices shipped grows, mobile VoIP applications gain more and more popularity around the world. These applications carry voice minutes and messaging using operators’ mobile data without contributing to carrier revenues. Furthermore, the current high bandwidth consumption of these 3rd party SIP-based VoIP solutions overloads carriers spectrum and infrastructure.
Smartphones consume 24 times more data than feature phones, while tablets consume 120 times more data than smartphones. All of which leads to deteriorating network data and call service quality, regardless of the capabilities of the wireless network. More demand for minutes, messaging and data places a severe stress on carrier economics due to customer churn, OTT voice revenue cannibalization, and explosive capital spending requirements.

Importantly, with Horizon Globex, global carriers can customize Features and Pricing consistent with carrier business strategy. This includes displacing “free” OTT apps with a high quality branded offering, creating differential tariffs with circuit-switched calls moving from premium to packet-switched calls or offering lower tariffs to VoIP-based calls on lower wholesale SIP interconnections. This frees circuit-switched bandwidth and offers free app-to-app calls or messaging to reduce load on circuit-switched networks. Additional sales drivers include recapturing lost voice and messaging revenue and engaging in profile-based in-app advertising.
Horizon Globex offers dramatic savings on international roaming via bandwidth efficiency where calls can be made and received using GSM data roaming or WiFi and operators can break-out the PSTN minutes. Target markets include subscribers with loved ones overseas, travelers outside your territory, overseas visitors in your territory and international business calls.
