Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) are increasingly investing in their own infrastructure. Why? Because running on someone else’s mobile network and trying to differentiate via marketing / branding isn’t good enough anymore. So MVNO’s are putting in some of their own infrastructure to use with the host network to create functional differentiation in addition to the marketing differentiation. 019 Telzar in Israel has recently done this, and it resulted in a 50% increase in its customer base in 5 months. Mobile Virtual Network Enablers (MVNEs) have also emerged to supply the infrastructure differentiation to the MVNO’s, so the MVNO itself doesn’t have to invest in the infrastructure.

Dialogic has had a consistent presence for over 15 years - not because we do any minutes exchange, but because we have a large customer base of carriers using our softswitches and SBCs that do. As such, just like MWC, this is a great place to meet with our customers and prospects.
But this is a challenging industry.

According to some research from the GSMA, all is not lost with the SMS battle against the IP messaging services. With WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and WeChat at about 1 billion monthly active users, it would seem that it’s just a matter of time before SMS becomes extinct. However, according to this report, “SMS retains its lead in markets that were early adopters of unlimited SMS bundles,” which makes sense. Start using it and you get used to it, especially if there are no extra charges.
What does this mean for service providers?
Everywhere in the world, small and big enterprises spend a considerable part of their budget on Antiviruses, Firewalls, and other appliances to protect their network and data. The typical network hacker usually targets the larger enterprises which are potentially a better mark with deeper pockets and lucrative secrets to keep. The PBX hacker though does not care about your enterprise size, because you can be as lucrative as any other company one hundred times bigger than you. When telephony shifted to IP, it brought many advantages, but it also exposed the voice to the same threats as the network.
