Report Analyses MVNO Prospects

Juniper Research has released its report, Consumer MVNOs: Current Status, Future Markets & Strategies 2006-2012, which looks at global MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) market developments and strategic options for the next five years, including voice, data and entertainment adoption, including subscriber and revenue predictions by region.
The confusion surrounding what constitutes a consumer MVNO makes it a difficult and subjective market to evaluate, says Jupiter, reducing the reliability of any business cases that may be used for investment purposes. This report, the company claims, cuts through the uncertainty, providing unambiguous definitions and clarity while affording valuable insight for current and potential industry players.
It discusses the current status of the MVNO market, providing a review of generic MVNO strategies, and impact assessments of MVNOs on the mobile market and end-users, along with case studies of MVNOs and MNOs, and an overview of MVNO activity in selected markets.
The report includes market forecasts to 2012 providing the latest market predictions for subscribers and revenues across all regions of specific strategic importance,  including North & South America, Western & Eastern Europe, the Far East & China,  the Indian Sub-Continent, the rest of Asia Pacific, and  Africa & the Middle East.
It also includes key market developments, assessing technological factors, end-user demand trends, and the supply environment. The report also looks at strategic options considering the value proposition for MVNOs/MNOs, and behaviour and segmentation in consumer markets. Finally, there is a detailed market status section., which analyses mobile penetration, network operators and usage trends, and considers current MVNOs and relative positioning for 12 key nations including the US, the UK, France, Australia and The Netherlands.
