The 4G rollouts in Africa, Latin-America and the APAC will continue strongly for years to come. The 4G coverage expansions, proliferation of cheap smartphones and change in user habits will double the amount of broadband enabled smartphones by 2021.
Sicap with its TargetMe Customer Insight and Engagement solution will play a central role in this value chain by accelerating operators’ 4G payback time and ROI through faster service adoption and more efficient sales and marketing.
International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasted that by 2020, more than 70% of the US workforce will work from a mobile location. Together with the rapid global growth of mobile working and the Bring Your Own Device model grows also IT security concerns. Central corporate mobile security and device management become crucial, which means a vast future revenue opportunity for mobile service providers.
In Sicap’s vision its Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution is positioned to enable mobile service providers to tap into this risk-free enterprise cloud revenue opportunity.
In the coming years, the trusted reputation of mobile services becomes operators an increasingly important value to protect due to the growing frequency of cyber-attacks and IT security and privacy breaches. The intensifying global migration and general insecurity impose more homeland security requirements on mobile service providers. The regulations and the growing awareness of security issues increase operators’ costs in the future.
Through its Mobile Security offering Sicap wants to enable operators to cost-efficiently conform to even the most demanding homeland security requirements and public security expectations.
According to Juniper Research the number of connected IoT (Internet of Things) devices, sensors and actuators will reach over 46 billion in 2021, an increase of 200% from 2016. In the future operators are uniquely positioned on the IoT value chain, either on a regional or global level, which makes IoT a vast revenue opportunity for them.
Sicap’s role in the IoT value chain is to enable mobile operators, MVNOs and MVNEs to become the preferred IoT service providers for enterprises and verticals in their own markets, unlocking their IoT business growth without large investments.
