The research forecasts that operators’ revenue from voice services will fall from $380 billion in 2019 to $210 billion in 2024; owing to increasing usage of OTT (Over-the-Top) apps, including WhatsApp and Viber. In response, it recommends that operators sign partnerships with CPaaS vendors to allow access to their mobile subscribers for voice and messaging services as a strategy to mitigate declining revenue.
