Syniverse: Fueling the Connectivity of the Future

Top 10 VAS Companies - 2018

The emergence of EDGE network eventually led to bundling of Value Added Services (VAS) along with telecommunication services, in an effort to enhance the utility of standard voice calls and fax transmissions. With a primary motive of overhauling the traditional mobile communication, VAS has become a part and parcel of the daily life amongst the people. Though these services were born out of the promotional campaigns for standard telecom services, VAS offers subscribers a diverse set of options and functionalities directly from their service providers.

VAS is the non-core services offered in the telecom sector. All services apart from standard voice calls and fax transmissions are considered a VAS. To stay relevant the value-added services companies have been forced to reinvent their business models in the smart phone age. From working with telecoms to offer services, VAS is evolving into Internet companies that need to use operators’ pipes to deliver apps or content, putting them in the crosshairs of the raging net neutrality debate raging across the world. These services boost an operator’s primary business.

Most of the telecommunication service providers of the current day and age offer services ranging from live streaming with mobile TV and Over The Top (OTT) services to ring tone or caller tone features to SMS and location-based services. Though they seem generic, considering the role these services play in an average consumer’s life, VAS occupies a significant market share. It upholds collaborations and partnership amongst service providers such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and subscription based bundles that utilize the data connectivity provided by the telecom service providers. Telecom companies are behind for operation and upkeep of telephone and related services. Consequently, it nurtures the growth of partnerships among standalone OTT service providers and VAS vendors, thereby broadening the viewership of OTT services and increasing the number of loyalty subscribes utilizing the VAS services from a particular vendor.

VAS is beneficial for the customers and the service providers in various ways. Through VAS customers get superior service experience, and improved pricing proposition. Users get the potential of significantly enhancing the growth and practicability. For service-providers it enhances growth of revenue, improve customer experience, optimize investment, accelerate service availability, and decreases leakage of revenue.
