Imagine all the people being connected

- 5 MIN READ - 10 Mar 2013

Have you ever wondered how many people actually own or use mobile phone?

Recent studies have shown that by the year 2017 there will probably be 5 billion unique mobile subscribers all over the world. Whereas by the year 2012 the number was approximately 3.2 billion, which is a bit less than half of the world population. This fact shows, that in less than 5 years, the mobile industry is expected to grow and spread even more, reaching countries and regions which do not even yet have proper infrastructure.

It is obvious that the growth is decreasing in developed countries and increasing in developing countries. For example in Africa, only one third of the population is in the list of mobile subscribers.

Who’s to say that the whole world must be covered with mobile networks? Still, we see how these crazy technical ideas and solutions have helped us in our every day life, in business and most of all keeping in touch our loved ones. Needless to say, one can not even imagine the amount of new cool services that can be built on such powerful platform of communication.

I am anxious to see, how does the growing number of mobile network users impact the mobile services industry, as well as the usage of smartphones.

Startup Conferences: What’s the point? (Slush 2017)

20 Oct 2017

With Slush coming up in about a month, it’s a good time ponder the purpose of large startup conferences. Many entrepreneurs head to conferences, like Slush, around the world and throughout the year looking for investments from venture capitalists and angel investors, yet there’s a lot more to gain from startup conferences. Think about it: there will be over 17,000 motivated and creative people in one place at one time. Get creative and gain as much as you can out of the experience.

The economics behind undelivered, failed SMS messages    

17 Oct 2017

The cost and full impact of undelivered or failed messages isn’t immediately clear. The financial impact is not simply the combination of the failed SMS and the cost to resend the message, which isn’t very much at times. There are other indirect costs that result from undelivered SMS messages that matter from a financial perspective. Let’s take a deeper look into the ripple effect of undelivered messages, which make the reasons behind our focus on SMS delivery quality even more clear.

Here are a few examples.

Fraud and Security: 2FA Considerations for PSD2

10 Oct 2017

The second Payment Services Directive (PSD2) is less than three months away from enforcement. While the regulation’s text is lengthy, a key component of the law is its extended reach in comparison to the first directive. PSD2 applies to all payment service providers and affiliates, including account information service providers and payment initiation service providers. In addition, the law applies when at least one part of the transaction is in the European Union. This means that payment service providers and their affiliates outside of the EU must comply with the law when the payer is in the EU. The additional geographical reach guarantees the same level of security expectations for all EU residents regardless of the location of the payment service provider.
