Global revenue from payment platforms that enables merchants to process payments will grow from US$106 billion in 2019 to US$158 billion by 2024, according to Juniper Research.

In its report on the payments platform market, Juniper forecasts over half of global revenue will be generated in China by 2024, primarily owing to its increasing affluence and vast usage of social payments such as WeChat Pay.

Juniper Research urges payment platform providers to leverage the efficiency of emerging technologies to fight this “increasingly sophisticated threat”.

The research recommends payment platform providers invest immediately to diversify their solutions and, as result, Juniper says they must offer services such as store management solutions, customer insights and merchant capital finance in order to remain competitive.

According to research author, Dr Morgane Kimmich, “The market will move beyond solely offering payments in the near future by expanding to new services”.

“These value-added services will enable payment platforms to differentiate themselves in a saturated market and build out new business models to allow vendors to generate additional revenue.”

The research assessed 16 payment gateway platforms, scoring them on their service capabilities, extent and breadth of offerings and future market prospects.

Juniper Research positioned the five leading vendors as:

  1. Fserv
  2. PayPal
  3. FIS
  4. CyberSource
  5. Adyen

Juniper says the research scored Fiserv highly for its acquisition of First Data; allowing it to create an end-to-end solution in the payments space and a wide range of payments such as the Clover POS system.

“Fiserv and FIS have both significantly increased their customer reach and breadth of solutions through recent mega-mergers. This has allowed both companies to further assert their strong positions in the payment gateway space,” Juniper notes.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
