Take a look inside the report

For the last 30 years Mobile Messaging has been an essential part of the services offered by operators to subscribers and businesses. Although operator provided messaging (SMS, MMS & RCS) is now just one of many messaging platforms available to users, it still retains a unique value due to its universal reach to billions of subscribers across the globe. Once primarily used as a person-to-person communications channel, the present and future of mobile operator messaging is as an application-to-person channel, and increasingly as a channel for machine-to-machine communications on the emerging Internet-of-Things.

As we move into a fourth decade of Mobile Messaging services, operators need to ensure that they have the functionality and capacity in their network to meet the changing demands of the market. Spectrum allocated to 2G and 3G networks will be shut-down in the near future, forcing all messaging traffic over 4G and 5G infrastructure. Operators will need to provide a variety of solutions to support different messaging use cases for private networks, IoT, and rich communications for subscribers. Future messaging platforms will be cloud-based, multi-generational, and feature-rich.

Are You Prepared?

Openmind’s 5G and IoT Messaging 360 Assessment is a convenient tool that helps you establish how ready your network is to exploit opportunities for new messaging services, and to deal with emerging threats. When you have completed the questionnaire, you will be provided with a report that will help you determine what steps you should take to prepare your messaging network for 5G and IoT.

Our 5G and IoT Messaging 360 Model examines the following aspects of future messaging networks:

  1. Are you ready to exploit Cloud Architectures for your Messaging Platforms?
  2. Can you support messaging services on a multi-generational mobile network that includes legacy 2G and 3G, 4G, 5G Non-Standalone (NSA) and 5G Standalone (SA)?
  3. What is your strategy for Rich A2P functionality to Business Customers?
  4. Are you ready to provide a solution for IoT use-cases and Private Networks?
  5. Have you considered what steps you need to take to secure messaging services for Rich A2P, 5G, IoT and Private Networks?

Each of these aspects is further broken down into statements and scores that help contextualise and measure your overall readiness for future messaging services.
