“Frictionless onboarding, and consumer like features,” says Guilaume Le Mener, SVP Le Mener about the type of mobility services people expect as consumers, but may not always get for their enterprise. In this podcast we hear a message that traditionally went to the carriers that his year was placed in front to the UC community at Enterprise Connect by Mavenir.
This week, Mavenir announced its Mobile-Native Unified Communications and Collaboration as a Service (UCaaS) solution, created specifically to acknowledge the mobility needs of SOHO and SMBs. The solutions leverages Mavenir’s immense mobile network knowledge with Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Rich Communication Services (RCS).
Mavenir held a 'virtual' analyst meeting - essentially a webinar - that conveyed the company's efforts on several new initiatives: SMB UCaaS - small business unified communications, Messaging as a Platform (MaaP), Monetization of messaging, Security Solutions (relating to toll fraud, for instance), and xRAN/Open RAN/
Big Bet No. 1: Mobile UCaaS
The latest in unified communications, collaboration and contact center services will be on display at Enterprise Connect 2018.
Mobile Network Operators (MNO) are under pressure on the consumer market, traditionally their largest, with flat growth, an intensive war on voice and data plans, and fierce competition from over-the-top (OTT) applications and services. The enterprise market offers a better growth outlook—15.2% CAGR between 2016 and 2021 for Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS)—with relative protection from OTT (due to privacy protection regulations), higher ARPU, and stickiness.
Network transformation continues to be a hot topic in the mobile sector, whether you’re talking about the RAN, the core or everything in between. That brings us quickly to Mavenir, which knows a little something about transformation, having been through several in its corporate history.
The small office/home office represents significant untapped potential.
Mobile network operators (MNOs) have a sizeable revenue opportunity in the high-growth UCaaS market. They're exceptionally well positioned to emerge victorious, and profitable, in the largest of all market segments.
