Have you ever dreamed of receiving more value while doing less work? Definitely, everyone has. In tech sphere, for instance, it’s possible due to API. However, the fact is that for many people it’s something they’ve probably heard of, but never got in details what exactly it is or how it functions. Some people even confess that at first API sounded more like a name of an airline than a technical term.

According to Nokia Bell Labs, over the next five years, the amount of IP traffic will more than double and in 2022 it will reach 330 exabytes a month. Today, customers’ needs are growing and changing, they are striving to receive more comprehensive services in telecom field, including 24/7 internet connection, high-resolution video streams and much more.

According to analysts, by 2020 there will be about 30 billion smart devices connected directly to each other in the world. All these plug-in devices – mobile phones, wearable gadgets, smart home appliances and everything else that includes plug-in sensors, actuators or microprocessors – will provoke an unprecedented increase in the amount of data transferred. By 2020, the predicted amount of such data will be 14 zettabytes. To compare the scales, we note that in 2009 the entire World Wide Web contained only a half-zetabyte of data.

Since communication protocols are an integral part of any telecom business, it’s of vital importance for any billing software user to know what two major protocols—RADIUS and SIP—are and how they work. So what is the difference between SIP billing server software and RADIUS billing server software?

Over the years, video content has been a source of headaches for telecoms operators: the costs of its transmission grew faster than any revenues from it, and the viewer remained dissatisfied. However, as the technology improves and the behaviors of the viewer change, there are good prospects in this sector.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a whole ecosystem, covering a wide variety of components – from devices and sensors to communication gateways, network connections, and management platforms. For today’s average millennium, a mobile phone and broadband Internet are part of their basic needs. However, even a cursory glance at the history of telecommunications is enough to understand that its whole history lasts a little more than a hundred years.

As the market becomes saturated, competition becomes fiercer and the cost of attracting subscribers also increases for a telecoms operator, such that becomes more realistic for the operator to concentrate on stemming the tide of subscriber outflow than to invest in attracting new subscriber inflows.

“When you are starting your own telecom business, you automatically start dreaming of becoming the next Version. However, the fact that you’ve basically got nothing to lose seemed rather advantageous and to some extent inspiring for me,” says Andrii Bashtannik, CTO at Spacetel. “When we just started, all we’ve got was passion, it turned out to be enough.”

IoT is not in itself an engine of the telecom business unless this technology is developed. In other words, if within the framework of the IoT the communication operators will provide only communication channels for the final services, then the profit will be able to earn from it only in the short term. The fact is that the cost of communication services for IoT will fall steadily as the number of devices will grow.

Communication operators, who for may decide for some reason to change the billing system software they are using, face a choice. Firstly, to migrate independently or to seek help from the developers of the chosen new system. In the first case, billing system migration is always carried out in half-manual mode – it is a one-time operation, there is no sense in automating it. As a result, errors occur, time frames shift and resource costs often grow well beyond the original budget.
