“Mobile Virtual Network Operator Market”
Mobile Virtual Network Operator Market, by Type (Reseller, Service Operator), by Service (Network Routing, Customer Care, Handset Management and Marketing & Sales), by Infrastructure (Skinny MVNO, Thin MVNO, and Thick MVNO) — Forecast till 2023

Market Synopsis:

Mobile virtual network operators are service providers that resell wireless network communication services using the infrastructure of a mobile network operator (MNO). This provides benefit to both mobile virtual network operators and mobile network operators. MNO contains an extra unused network bandwidth which they offer MVNO at a low price, thereby making optimum utilization of the unused network bandwidth. MVNO offer these services to end users without having any support infrastructure or paying the license fee to the government.

According to Market Research Future, the Mobile Virtual Network Operator Market is segmented into type, service, and infrastructure.

By type, the market is segmented into reseller, and service operator. A reseller is a third party arrangement selling the services of a network provider/operator. Service operator, on the other hand, have the same controls as the network operators, without the obligation of an operator-level regulation, and network engineering.

By service, the market is segmented into network routing, customer care, billing & collection, handset management (2G, 3G, 4G), and marketing & sales. Network routing refers to the foundation of routes that data packets take on their way to a particular destination. Network routing can be applied to data exchange on the Internet, over 3G or 4G networks used for telecommunication. The 2G technology introduced call and text encryption, plus data services like SMS, picture messages, and MMS. 3G is used for faster data-transmission speed in more data-demanding ways such as video calling and mobile internet. With the implementation of 4G, some 3G features are removed, such as the spread spectrum radio technology. 5G is a not-yet-implemented wireless technology which is expected to improve 4G technology.

5G promises significantly faster data rates, higher connection density, much lower latency, among other improvements.
