In a saturated, competitive telecommunications market, the Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) segment continues to grow year-over-year. With a 4.5% market share of mobile connections and over 300M users across 1,300 operators, it is predicted to accelerate more in the near future.
Several factors contribute to the growth of MVNOs and help to ensure that new, nimble players can challenge the larger, more established Mobile Network Operators (MNOs).
To launch a new operator in a competitive market and run a successful MVNO business, an organization should continuously create value for its base and prospects. It can do so by:
To achieve these success factors, you need a robust BSS framework behind you. For MNOs launching an MVNE platform to host MVNOs and for MVNOs buying their IT infrastructure, a cloud-native BSS on the public cloud offers the magic combination of the maximum benefits at the lowest cost.
Lowest TCO, up to 80% in savings
Savings on the public cloud result from several factors. Some of these savings come from cheaper compute power and decreased hardware and operating costs — these savings are available when leveraging the scalability of public cloud and free, open source software (vs. proprietary).
Freedom to focus on your business, not your infrastructure.
Most MVNE/Os do not have the budget or in-house skills to embark on a BSS development project, not to mention managing infrastructure and data centers. With a public cloud BSS solution, any aspect of your BSS can be managed by your vendor — from your hardware to your data centers and applications.
Elastic compute power and autoscaling.
Compute power resources on the public cloud with Google Cloud Platform (GCP) require no need for pre-purchasing. You pay only for the resources you use. MVNE/Os can enjoy unparalleled scalability and latency, scaling operations up and down as required and paying fees accordingly.
Leveraging best practices and packaged templates.
A BSS stack designed and customized heavily is sometimes overkill. Instead, MVNE/Os need a BSS developed and packaged for their needs that is also modular and flexible for changes. With the public cloud, discover a dynamic solution with rapid time to value and constant access to new features, using automated CI/CD pipeline for bespoke needs.
