Global Market Potential for Annual Identity as a Service Revenue Exceeds $20bn, According to Frost & Sullivan

VAS providers could be key for carriers to take full advantage with Movius' myIdentities solution, which leads the market to convert potential to actual revenue

ATLANTA - February 14, 2014 - Research published by Frost & Sullivan today, providing in-depth analysis of the evolving VAS industry, has estimated a Total Addressable Market for Identity as a Service solutions exceeding $20bn and reaching more than 1.1 billion subscribers worldwide.

The analysis suggests that VAS will give carriers a timely boost against a backdrop of squeezed revenues especially with the disconnect between exponential traffic increase and slower revenue growth becoming more exacerbated. Increased OTT competition, rapidly developing technologies and dynamic user habits are some of the major culprits, but an evolving VAS sector may have the answers.

Frost & Sullivan identified a host of new identity-based services which are shaking up the VAS market including for BYOD, temporary number and privacy, work/life balance, social communications and split billing. The research examines vendors providing Identity as a Service, and notes that Movius Interactive Corporation stands out with its myIdentities solution.

"Operators are increasingly faced with newer threats from OTT players that are nimbler and more agile, enabling them to identify a niche market and move to address it before carriers can even begin to reconfigure their networks to deliver the service in the traditional modus operandi," says Ronald Gruia, Director for Emerging Telecoms at Frost & Sullivan. "Therefore, service providers need a partner that can provide innovative solutions that can deliver OTT services in an agile fashion."

Through the use of Movius' myIdentities, carriers can offer consumers multiple or split identities on one device, enabling end users to easily access and manage their personal and business data. This also provides security for businesses by keeping employees' personal and public data separate, protecting company assets. Each identity also has separate voice, data and messaging, with the added benefit of split billing using both the data and TDM networks.

"The analysis and projections in today's research support what we know already having a number of live real-world implementations out there. Carriers can give end users value-added services which match the needs of today's modern consumer and at the same time boost revenues significantly. The projections suggest increased ARPU of between eight and 10 percent which when considering there is the potential for over a billion subscribers is very impressive," added Jose Romero, VP of Product Strategy and Marketing at Movius.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself?
