A huge category, the Internet of Things (IoT) refers to uniquely identifiable objects and their virtual representations in an Internet-like structure. IoT represents the logical evolution of the cloud and big data: the idea to enable sensor-equipped "things" to communicate with one another in meaningful, actionable ways, such as the following examples:
Aggregators of telecom Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) connect multiple carrier APIs with various other resources. The main interest groups are API providers and third-party developers. The API aggregator role is gradually gaining momentum within the market as developers create more innovative services, and as operators can also provide mash-ups as end-products. Carriers may perceive aggregators as a threat, as an operator may suffer from a dependency on third-party services, and uncertainty in the provided services and APIs.
The value chain for telephony APIs takes many forms depending on the specific capabilities of an API. Generically, the network API value chain initiates from carrier which serves as the primary resource pool for assets and capabilities. Through network APIs these assets are exposed to developers.
Developers may have to work in conjunction with Web/Enterprise asset providers to integrate functionalities with other applications or web interfaces.
Historically, network infrastructure is the most expensive component in a mobile operator's overall CAPEX, which holds true in China, the biggest and fastest growing 4G market in the world.
