Today MVNOs and MNOs are being served by a fragmented market of Mobile Virtual Network Enablers (MVNEs) ranging from large scale global vendors, system integrators and many small specialist providers and niche players.

With growing pressure to win new businesses, the MVNE (enabler party of MVNO) market is becoming increasingly commoditized and competitive. As the product offerings of MVNOs and MNOs evolve, so too must the propositions of MVNEs if they are to succeed. This viewpoint explores the challenges and opportunities for MVNEs seeking to differentiate and drive incremental revenues.

MVNEs need to extend their services beyond traditional OSS / BSS platform solutions such as the service fulfillment, network inventory management, service assurance, subscriber management and channel management to serve these needs.

HSS/HLR and Unified Core Network Platform for Mobile Virtual Network Operators

he MVNO’s business depends mostly on the cost-efficiency of its core infrastructure and roaming agreements. For each new market entry an MVNO will get a type of agreement that gives access to the radio network infrastructure of at least one MNO:

An agreement in which the MVNO buys a range of IMSI codes from the MNO,


An agreement in which the MVNO has its own MCC and MNC. In this case the MVNO has its own IMSI range and the agreement is mainly for the radio network infrastructure access and for other commercial reasons.
