New Applications and New Business Models

Whether it's LTE or WiMAX or local WISPs using combinations of Wi-Fi, WiMAX and other technologies, we are on the verge of having affordable mobile broadband in the US (it's already available in the UK and Scandinavia and becoming available elsewhere in the EU). What services can be provided over the top and what services need or can benefit from operator capabilities (QoS, security, ...)? The iPhone store, Android store and similar initiatives suggest power is shifting away from the operators and into the hands of application developers and the end user. How can operators leverage their core capabilities (QoS, security, billing, customer relationships, call detail, ...) to provide applications and remain relevant to their customers?

    • “3G” Services • 3G-324M Video telephony • Location-based services • Push-to-Talk (VoIP w/o QoS) • Rich presence (instant messaging) • Fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) • IP Multimedia Services (w/ QoS) – Video sharing (conversational video on IP) • Converged “All IP” networks – the Vision 14
    • “3G” Services • 3G-324M Video telephony Limited adoption • Location-based services • Push-to-Talk (VoIP w/o QoS) Limited adoption • Rich presence (instant messaging) • Fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) Limited adoption • IP Multimedia Services (w/ QoS) – Video sharing (conversational video on IP) Limited adoption • Converged “All IP” networks – the Vision 15
    • “3G” Services • 3G-324M Video telephony Limited adoption • Location-based services Bypassed ! • Push-to-Talk (VoIP w/o QoS) Limited adoption • Rich presence (instant messaging) No traction • Fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) Limited adoption • IP Multimedia Services (w/ QoS) – Video sharing (conversational video on IP) Limited adoption • Converged “All IP” networks – the Vision Still waiting … 16
    • Mobile operators miss the boat • Location-based services (LBS) • Required in US for 911 services • Fully implemented (after multiple delays) • Not made attractive for 3rd parties Result: • All US location-based services based on alternate location approaches – GPS, Cell ID, Navizon, Skyhook 17
    • Mobile operators slow the boat • Billing Services – Mobile operators have efficient billing systems & own the customer relationship – DoCoMo showed (I-Mode in 1999) the enormous potential of affordable billing services – Yet billing still offered only via premium rate #s • Result: – 3rd party content is paid for via 3rd party billing systems or (multiple) premium rate SMS(s) 18
    • Mobile Broadband Access US prospects for “over the top” access to the open Internet 19
    • iPhone traffic per month 20
    • iPhone glimmer of what’s possible • Controlled eco-system – Applications approved by Apple – Must meet unpublished standards under contract between Apple & AT&T – E.g., can’t run VoIP over 3G, only over Wi-Fi But, $30/ month flat rate data plan (on top of $40+ phone plan) • Explosive growth in web usage 21
    • Mobile Internet Access • Available for PC’s with restrictions, e.g. no servers, no P2P, no substitution for private lines or frame relay • AT&T: 5GB @ $60/mo • Verizon: ditto • Sprint: ditto • No US operator offers flat rate unlimited plans 22
    • Breaking Oligopolies • Four or more viable competitors is what it takes; more than four and it can be rapid – Many examples in mobile voice telephony from around the world 23
    • Breaking Oligopolies • Four or more viable competitors is what it takes; more than four and it can be rapid – Many examples in mobile voice telephony from around the world • 2009: Three established US 3G operators – AT&T Mobility, Verizon Wireless & Sprint PCS – Flat rate data plans exist; but with caps – No unlimited open Internet access 24
    • Additional US 3G/4G Competition 25
    • Additional US 3G/4G Competition • USA (well financed) – Paid $4.2B for AWS spectrum in 2006 and committed additional $2.7B for initial rollout – Currently spending almost $1B per quarter, 3G had reached 1/3rd of cell sites as of 3Q08 26
    • Additional US 3G/4G Competition • USA (well financed) – Paid $4.2B for AWS spectrum in 2006 and committed additional $2.7B for initial rollout – Currently spending almost $1B per quarter, 3G had reached 1/3rd of cell sites as of 3Q08 • (build out partially financed) – WiMAX on Clearwire and Sprint spectrum 27

    • Subscribers & Applications • Historically, only applications pre-installed on handsets had any traction – “On-deck” applications and content offers • Apple iPhone application store is on-deck – Provides access to 50K+ applications • Andriod store, RIM, Nokia, Qualcomm, Palm, Handango, Adobe, Samsung, … 29

    • Handset diversity Remaining obstacle to widespread deployment of 3rd party applications 31
    • IMS doesn’t solve inter-operability 32
    • Handsets more & more diverse • Browsers – Openwave, Opera, Safari, … – Using: WebKit, Netfront, Presto, … • Runtime environments as several levels – Adobe AIR, .Net/Silverlight, Brew, JavaME, … • Operating systems – Symbian, WinMobile, Android, OpenMoko… • Hardware capabilities – CPUs, supported codecs, screen size, … 33

    • Internet will win in the end, but… Mobile Facebook by: http://www.flickr.com/photos/philiphubs/ 35
    • Important trends • App stores! – Easier distribution; Easier discovery • More and more smart phones • Richer browser capabilities – Approaching PC browser functionality • New access to device capabilities – User data (contacts, logs, …), events (incoming calls) and core functionality 36
    • Uniquely Mobile Internet • Phase 1 – cut down web, e.g. WAP • Phase 2 – full web accessible on mobile • Phase 3 – designed-for-mobile web – Optimize the mobile user experience; speed ups • Phase 4 – client-side mashups – telephony, address book, location, camera… • Phase 5 – apparent persistence – Despite battery limitations; widgets; push; … 37
    • 38
    • Challenges • Handset diversity • Pace of change • User interface – minimum clicks; max speed • Battery life – “chatty” apps drain power • Application concurrency – Manage events over browser, native & helper apps • Persistent user experience across multiple applications 39
    • Dealing with handset diversity • Browser-based application first • Optimize for top N phones by market share – For most applications, N likely equals 1-3, not 10-12 SmartPhone market share Source: StatCounter 40
    • Smart Phones & Feature Phones • Smart Phone adoption soaring – Nokia, Blackberry, iPhone, RIM, WinMobile, Palm, Android, … – Moore’s law suggests it will only get better But • 85% of US phones are “feature phones” – Higher percentage in emerging markets • Application environments emerge – Java, Flash, Qt and ever richer web runtimes 41

    • Advertising won’t cover lost voice $ Source: Telco 2.0 Manifesto, STL Partners Ltd. 46
    • Two-Sided Markets • eBay connects sellers and buyers • Nightclubs: women get in free • Media – Newspapers – low prices for subscribers facilitates sales of advertising – Broadcast TV – free attracts viewers facilitating sales of advertising • Akamai caching benefits – Free to ISPs; Paid for by content providers 47

    • Billing Service • Most operators cautious about partnering – Fear of “dumb pipe” slow roll out of new services • DoCoMo i-mode 2G data service launched 1999 – Small screens, slow (9.6 kbps) data rate • But i-mode business model was wide open – Free development software kits; No access restrictions – DoCoMo’s “bill-on-behalf” with 9% commissions • i-mode big success in first 24 months – 55,000 applications, 30M subscribers ! 49
    • DoCoMo i-Mode: 2-sided business model • Subscribers pay for data access (flat rate monthly bundles) • Application providers pay DoCoMo for billing services 50
