As the number of IoT devices increase at a fast rate, the need to support them with appropriate IoT data connectivity is also rising. The fact that data requirements will be in zettabytes in the coming years makes the situation all the more challenging for mobile virtual operators like MVNOs. As these small-scale operators rely heavily on the network frequency spectrum provided by the MNOs, they would have to think out of the box if they truly want to rule the market. The biggest challenge is to grow across all verticals as IoT requirements are quite diverse.
Growth in Different Verticals, But Data is the Key
IoT is a multi-faceted technology and it requires you to have presence across all verticals. From SIM delivery to security, you need to provide above par experience to the subscribers in order to succeed. But the ground-reality is that the MVNOs are already pushed to the limit. Barring a few MVNOs, most virtual operators are struggling to keep up with the new industry challenges. As FCC announces new rules every other day, MVNOs need a platform that allows them to stay adherent with every new compliance, and at the same time let them launch attractive IoT offering. Some major verticals that an MVNO needs to grow in are:
IoT has immense requirements that start from the hardware. Sensors, SIMs and real-time charging servers are some of the most basic needs for sustaining an IoT network.
APIs need to be written for IoT use cases. Non-tech MVNOs do not have the capabilities to design their own APIs. A telecom services vendor like Telgoo5 has several APIs that are built from the ground up to meet the unique requirements of its clients. Apart from that, it also excels in adapting to the industry changes and tech developments very quickly.
IoT data has the most important role in the IoT use case. Unlike regular connectivity, IoT use cases require unique connectivity solutions ranging from Wi-Fi, mobile connectivity, WLAN, satellite, LoRA, SigFox etc. An MVNO requires the right kind of connectivity at its disposal, if it wants to serve clients from different niches. For example, LoRA is a low power connectivity solution that can be implemented in situations where bandwidth requirements are low and sensor discharge is a major issue.
Accurate IoT Billing
Once an MVNO has customers, it is important that it treats them right. Bringing in transparency into billing can build trust amongst subscribers, but it is more difficult than it seems. A true real-time billing system is required to charge and rate every service in real-time, so that charges are applied precisely on every service. Implementation of an Online Charging System (OCS) like the one provided by Telgoo5 is the key to winning new customers and keeping the existing customer base satisfied.
IoT data connectivity is a boon for the evolution of technology, but it is also the entry point for hackers. With encrypted IoT data, this threat can be neutralized. At Telgoo5, we not only implement strong security measures on the data, we also provide a unique public IP for every connection. Telgoo5 is one of the leading telecom support services providers for both MVNOs and MVNEs. We have the right tools and setup to serve your every need. Our reporting is world-class and we use analytics to improve the efficiency of your telecom billing services. We provide you the perfect back up in the time of your need by offering you 24×7 customer support services. Partnering with Telgoo5 is the best way to monetize and deliver IoT data services.
