Mobile Internet Media Usage Analytics Tool

The GSMA and comScore announced the launch of Mobile Media Metrics (MMM), a solution to the challenges of mobile media usage measurement and reporting. Taking anonymous mobile Internet usage data from all five UK mobile operators, the service provides insights into market-specific mobile media consumption.

MMM was designed to deliver actionable reporting tools to the media industry, while respecting the privacy of individual mobile service subscribers. According to comScore, access to transparent measurement is essential in establishing Mobile as a legitimate marketing and advertising medium.

The service is based on anonymized census-level data for mobile Internet usage across all mobile networks, which is then augmented with demographic data that has been collected with the consent of a representative sample of mobile Internet users.

The service provides an aggregated view of mobile Internet usage behavior, enabling market-level analysis of site visitation and engagement metrics -- such as page views, time spent on specific sites, and mobile device types and features.

Based on pre-production data, 16 million people in the UK accessed the Internet from their mobile phones in December 2009, viewing a combined total of 6.7 billion pages and spending an aggregate of 4.8 billion minutes online during the month.

The top 10 sites accounted for 70 percent of both total pages viewed and total time spent online on mobiles during the month.

Mobile Internet usage is accelerating, driven largely by the adoption of smartphones, which are now used by one fifth of the total UK mobile phone service subscriber base, according to comScore.

While smartphone users represent just 29 percent of the UK total mobile Internet audience, they accounted for 47 percent of total page views, and 51 percent of the total time spent online in December 2009.

The service will also be expanded to include Wi-Fi traffic through site-centric measurement of publisher and ad network sites -- using comScore's Media Metrix 360 solution, for a de-duplicated view of the online and mobile Internet.

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price.

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards. Robocall Mitigation Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Jun

Upside for New 5G Network Transport Infrastructure

The global mobile communication sector is in the midst of a significant network infrastructure upgrade to support the introduction of new high-bandwidth and low-latency broadband service offerings.  Telecom service provider data centers have an important role in fifth-generation (5G) network deployments. Providers undergoing their transition to Stand-Alone (SA) 5G must understand the technical demands of telco data centers and the key enablers of those offerings. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the major prerequisites of 5G and the emerging transport solutions would help operators position themselves to successfully capitalize on the new revenue opportunities from delivering differentiated 5G connectivity services. 5G Transport Network Market Development "The rise of the telco data center has a high degree of confluence with the requirements of SA 5G architectures. SA 5G and its increasing reliance on telco data centers can be attributed to the incr
