An MVNO has connections to a carrier and the ability to activate and provision a service. Previously many players were light MVNOs which implemented a billing platform only.
According to Gartner, the number of connected ‘things’ in use will reach 20.4 billion by 2020. IoT market boosts on manufacturing, transportation, utilities, healthcare and consumer electronics such as connected home.
Some MVNOs are moving to be part of the value chain but not only offering connectivity simply. The scope needs full MVNO platform. Typically, an IoT MVNO needs HLR/HSS, GGSN/PGW, OSS/BSS, CMP, etc. But ARPU of IoT is much lower than traditional service. MVNOs need balance between CAPEX and revenue. It needs cost efficiency and rapid implement solutions.
IPLOOK Technologies provides innovative core network solution for both MVNO and MNO. The NFV architecture reduced CAPEX and OPEX. Please visit Pode Zone C on MVNOs World Congress in Madrid, 23 - 26 April 2018.
