Segmentation of the Mobile Data Demand Drivers

Mobile network service provider data plan revenues will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of nearly 9 percent and are expected to exceed $102 billion worldwide by 2016, according to the latest market study by ABI Research.

Regionally, data plan revenue share among different device classes can vary significantly.

As an example, currently in North America, data plans for smartphones deliver the majority of revenue. However in regions lacking fixed line access to the Internet, such as Eastern Europe and Latin America, connections to other computing devices constitute the majority share.

But according to ABI practice director Dan Shey, "By 2016, smartphones will become the largest portion of each region's mobile data plan revenues with over 50 percent share."

Increasing smartphone penetration rates among mobile enterprise customers are major drivers for data plan revenue growth. But connectivity for other devices such as tablets will become increasingly important and contribute significantly to overall connectivity revenues from the business sector.

Data plan growth enables other opportunities for the enterprise sector. More connections mean greater need for applications, and content, security, expense and other mobile device-related services.

Forward-looking mobile network service providers that are targeting the enterprise segment are looking holistically at the opportunities presented by increasing enterprise mobile device connections.

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.

Secure Digital Workspace Apps Enable the Future Enterprise

In early 2020, as the world responded to the COVID-19 pandemic disruption, many organizations were forced to rapidly transform their communications networks and IT infrastructure to support an unprecedented shift to remote work. Before the pandemic, approximately 38 percent of employees were remote full-time or had a flexible work arrangement where they split time between home and office locations. During the pandemic, the percentage of remote workers that CIOs had to support reached almost 72 percent. Future Enterprise Technology Market Development Enterprise leaders have been forced to adapt to a new state, shifting from traditional office-based operations to distributed workforce environments that must still provide the same level of connectivity, security, and efficiency across the organization. According to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC), addressing connectivity across geographies and transforming networks to become more virtual and agile
