International Wholesale Carriers: Growth Drivers & Growth Services
Global Wholesale Carriers have seen limited growth as well as a dramatic decrease in wholesale voice revenues. Historically the mainstay of the international wholesale business, wholesale voice revenue has been declining, driven by the contraction in voice volumes and termination rates. Voice OTT providers have cannibalized an important portion of the voice traffic carried on international routes.
Furthermore, pressure from retail telecom operators to protect their voice margins, combined to the emergence of roam-like-home mobile plans and the roaming regulations designed to slash international roaming prices, have also had a depressing effect on wholesale termination prices. International wholesale providers need to harness new market growth drivers in order to activate new service revenue streams while carefully managing the decline of the traditional international voice business.
The emergence of Internet players, ranging from cloud providers to OTTs, is expanding the addressable market for global wholesalers. Multinational companies (MNCs) and telecom operators’ need for digital transformation, agility, and in some cases scalability is also driving the need for a new set of digital wholesale services, including on-demand cloud connectivity and cloud-based communication services. Moreover, IoT and security services are also creating new demand pools.
