Smart consumer devices – from smartphones to tablets, eReaders, connected TVs and more – are changing from being premium items to suit mass-market customers. While this offers potentially significant new revenue streams from end users, it also adds to the much-discussed ‘data tsunami’.
Moreover, as Internet, application, content and device companies scramble to take advantage of this brave new world, operators risk becoming marginalised unless they can develop business strategies and partnerships to gain a share of a fruitful new market.
What will the smart device future look like and where do operators fit into it? What strategies and services offer the greatest opportunities? How can operators avoid simply being drowned in data? We examine how operators across the globe are leveraging their positions and resources to take their share of these new revenue streams.
