SAP Mobile Services: Mapping a new world for mobile operators

412 views

Published on

A decade ago, an operator’s world revolved almost exclusively around voice – a far cry from the interoperable, pan-operator network topology that has since evolved.
 
Over the last ten years, operators have had to deal with significant changes, including the advent of 4G, an all-IP environment, and the open infrastructure that came with it. As a result, they’re collaborating with old competitors to fight the new entrants that threaten their dominance.
 
How has this situation developed? And are operators on the right track?

SAP Mobile Services: Mapping a new world for mobile operators

  1. 1. Mapping A New World For Mobile Operators SAP Mobile Services, Operator Guide 2013 John Sims, President, SAP Mobile Services
  2. 2. Mapping A New World for Mobile Operators A decade ago, an operator’s world revolved almost exclusively around voice – a far cry from the interoperable, pan-operator network topology that has since evolved. Over the last ten years, operators have had to deal with significant changes, including the advent of 4G, an all-IP environment, and the open infrastructure that came with it. As a result, they’re collaborating with old competitors to fight the new entrants that threaten their dominance. How has this situation developed? And are operators on the right track?
  3. 3. Mapping A New World for Mobile Operators The complexity that now distinguishes operator services brings with it a rich abundance of opportunities to those who are forward-thinking and adaptive in their strategies and capabilities.
  4. 4. Mapping A New World for Mobile Operators   Operators have had to abandon their “closed system” approach to mobile data as it has increasingly eclipsed voice.   The cost of spectrum and need for new network technologies has lead them to explore cooperative arrangements and joint ventures.   In order to compete against internet-based players (so-called OverThe-Top players) they’ve needed to provide innovative new services.   Achieving a more rapid and ubiquitous network footprint both locally and globally will be key to defending their franchises against this threat.

  6. 6. Mapping A New World for Mobile Operators Growing mobile data consumption has completely transformed the landscape for mobile operators over the last six years.
  7. 7. Mapping A New World for Mobile Operators Having previously taken a “walled garden” approach to mobile data, they now need to significantly rethink their business models to generate profits in this new environment. This is where SAP Mobile Services provides the most critical value, delivering the world-class interoperability and reach that comes with being an independent custodian.
