Published: Feb 2014 | No Of Pages: 43 | Published By: Global Wireless Research

Product Synopsis

Cloud services are largely business-to-business (B2B) to date with little business-to-consumer (B2C) services impact other than some data back-up and synchronization. Furthermore, it is largely third-parties offering consumer services and not the wireless carriers.

Wireless carriers have an opportunity to utilize their unique assets (network and data) and to leverage current and future partnerships to their advantage. Carriers must begin to do this now as they build out their 4G networks in anticipation of many more data users and much more data usage.

This report provides recommendations for wireless carriers to deploy consumer cloud services as a value-added complement to their data services. These services will bring incremental revenue and leverage carrier assets and their unique position in the ecosystem.
