2015predicitons

2015 will be remembered as the year that carriers interconnected together to provide rich integrated IP messaging for consumers, much the same way SMS has provided dependable text messaging for the past two decades.

Here are my predictions for the catalysts triggering the growth of Carrier IP communications services:

1. RCS will be recognized as the de-facto standard for IP Messaging. Carriers will leverage Jibe’s IP Communications Cloud and branded client to deliver innovative, dependable, easy to use communications services for consumers to instant message, share content, and video chat in the same experience while still able to access SMS/MMS.
