In-Stat Study Finds Managed Services to Provide Competitive Edge in Maturing Mobile Markets


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., January 31, 2006 – As the mobile industry matures and service providers seek innovative ways to reshape their businesses and successfully compete for subscribers, they are increasingly turning to vendors of outsourced and managed services solutions to support key areas of service delivery and network operations. These managed services solutions enable mobile operators to rapidly launch innovative applications and services and explore new business opportunities while reducing capital expenditures and operating costs and better mitigating the risks associated with innovation.

A newly-released In-Stat ( study examines a wide range of managed services solutions and strategies currently being used by mobile operators, focusing on the Managed Application Services (MAS) and Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) markets. The high-tech market research firm’s study also provides global and regional vendor revenue forecasts through 2010 for a broad range of MAS, MVNE, managed network services, and managed BSS/OSS services targeted at mobile operators.

Some of the key findings include:

- The overall global mobile managed services market is projected to more than double over the next five years – growing from $22.2 billion in 2006 to $52.2 billion in 2010.

- Evolution of network operator technology infrastructure is creating new opportunities for third-party vendors to deliver managed services to mobile service providers and requiring service providers to re-evaluate their managed services strategies.

- Markets for traditional managed services, such as customer care and billing and network management, will continue to grow but will be eclipsed by rapidly growing markets for MAS and MVNE solutions.

- Leading mobile infrastructure and applications vendors are aggressively developing and marketing comprehensive managed services solutions as they migrate from product-based to services-based solutions.
