Akil Chomoko, Product Marketing Director, MDS Global

The strategic approach taken by CSPS around the world to launch IoT services is proving important when shaping the development of propositions, specifically with regard to the billing of IoT services. Many CSPs are still in the early stages of progressing billing and exploring new IoT monetization models, but there is also awareness of emerging billing models which are more frequently being used by small and medium-sized IoT vendors. As the diversity of IoT applications increases and the number of partners in ecosystems grows, the CSPs will need to adopt new business support systems [BSS] to move beyond being just a connectivity provider, and into the functional role of lead enabler.

Key topics include:

  • Exploring the current status on CSP IoT Monetisation strategies – survey-based analysis
  • Critical elements in building an IoT Monetisation practise
  • The hurdles in CSPs executing and generating revenues from IoT
  • The case for agile billing and the move to lead enabler
