Huawei unveiled its SoftMobile solution which helps operators create commercial opportunities by opening the way for MBB success.
Total revenue from subscriptions will increase via the expansion of the number of connections beyond what is possible with today’s smartphones as tablets, connected cars, cameras and vertical businesses of all types herald a world of infinite machine-to-machine connections.
This creates a huge opportunity for operators to become enablers of innovation by opening up network functionality to third parties developing applications to run across an expanding ecosystem. A common open API is an integral part of SoftMobile for capitalizing on these new business opportunities.
Huawei believes that SoftMobile represents at least a USD2 trillion market opportunity for operators by 2020.
