MVNO Global helps verticals to master their complex global connectivity on the long term.

In particular, MVNO Global accompanies Transportation / Automotive OEMs to assess the best flexible connectivity strategy enabled by a combination of complementary solutions encompassing becoming potentially a Mobile Virtual Network Operator for the Connected Vehicle and the future Autonomous Vehicle services, the so -called own automotive MVNO concept where economies of scales and local regulation justify the investment, using local connectivity more easily by deploying the new IoT eSIM (SGP.32), and still keeping international roaming with local break out. The flexible combination allow migrations from one to another technical solutions in view of regulation or economics changes.

We are looking at the next generation hybrid networks too. Verticals consider private LTE/ 5G networks for critical use such as factory 4.0. More and more the private networks are seen as the starting point of the connectivity journey of goods that will be spread out worldwide, and that need to be kept connected. While owning and operating such private networks, Verticals may consider adding the ubiquity of a secured full MVNO, by using their existing core network and operation skills to develop such hybrid private LTE-5G / MVNO as a credible alternative. As the IoT eSIM (SGP.32) appears a good and simple solution for private networks, this could also motivate a reassessment of the overall connectivity strategy, even if an own MVNO strategy is not favored.

We can accompany verticals in the journey to define strategically the best mobile networking business model all the way, from the business planning phase to the implementation and operational launch.

We are a group of professionals with extended operational experience in full MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network operator with own core network).

The cellular revolution of the verticals

The importance and use of cellular services by verticals have recently increased strategically.

On one hand, they need to control their production processes that will migrate towards industry 4.0, replacing Wifi by cellular services with low latency 4G or ultimately ultra low latency 5G. As they need to control the production secrecies, they would need to operate themselves private cellular networks.

On the other hand, they would need to access ubiquitously goods or products with embedded connectivity. It could be for logistics, tracking components or finished products to be delivered: that is the IoT revolution; or it could be essential connected services embedded in the finished product, in the connected car for example. Verticals would need to get ubiquitous coverage with acceptable costs for those services, while making sure that those essential cellular services are of the highest quality, reliability and fit.

When you combine production, logistics and commercial connected services requirement, you may look at hybrid networks private LTE or 5G (in the vertical premises) / full MVNO (outside the vertical premises)  taking advantage of economies of scale in having a single core network infrastructure for private and full MVNO network for example and mutualizing mobile network skills, while being able to integrate other technologies such as LPWan. And anyway the new IoT eSIM may be an efficient glue to pursue  combined on premises/outside premises connectivity.

Let’s discuss on this subject.
