weightless' web - key speaker M2M & IoT to offer revenue replacement for MNOs

Good idea to attend Digital Services Congress next week

It seems that currently everywhere mobile network operators [MNOs] turn, their revenues are being eroded.

The key lies in identifying where the growth will come from. GoMo News has a key recommendation – especially for those who happen to be in London, England next week (2nd-4th June 2014).

Aitken pointed out that there are subtle differences in the ecosystems. With IoT. services will be sold by one business to another business which then markets that on to the consumer. So B2B2C, then.
