Mobile Operator Strategies for Success in M2M: The Role of Cloud Platforms

29 September 2012
Report type: White Paper
Author(s): Jim Morrish

Cloud based platform capabilities can help a mobile operator’s ability to compete in M2M markets in a number of ways.

Machina Research has undertaken a detailed business modeling exercise to quantify the potential benefits of such an approach. We have concluded that the action of adopting a cloud-based M2M platform solution could have the effect of increasing 8-year cumulative profits from M2M five-fold in comparison with a scenario where the same mobile operator does not adopt any form of platform capability1. The main sources of benefit that we identified include: additional local client wins, additional regional client wins, ARPU uplift, and cost reduction.
