  • Matt Hatton
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the most mature of the Digital Transformation technology families. It provides a concrete ROI based on a simple premise: take IT tasks that would previously have been undertaken by humans and automate them as much as possible, typically by way of bots that track human action and replicate it.

                        he topic of mobile private networks (MPNs) has attracted increasing attention during 2020 thanks to the arrival of 5G and the increasing availability of dedicated spectrum. In many cases these will be used to support sophisticated IoT use cases in manufacturing, transportation, energy and agriculture. There is an immediate and substantial opportunity associated with the provision of MPNs but the business model for delivering them remains uncertain. There are a number of different possible deployment models for such networks, and several permutations for the commercial arrangements between the various stakeholders (e.g. enterprise, infrastructure vendor, and mobile network operator) for delivering them. This report examines all of the various participants in providing MPNs and how their internal dynamics and interrelationships are likely to evolve in the next 5-10 years. It proposes Transforma Insights’ view on who will be the likely winners in terms of realizing the benefit from the market. It is the third in a series of three reports on Mobile Private Networks. The others are ‘Mobile Private Networks for IoT: 5G capabilities and new dedicated spectrum drive demand’ and ‘Mobile Private Networks for IoT: Which sectors will see the biggest adoption?’.

                            Mobile Private Networks (MPNs) have attracted a lot of attention over the last two years as a growth opportunity for mobile network operators and infrastructure vendors. Some of the early deployments have focused on factories and ports but there are dozens of potential campus-type locations where there will be some value associated with a more secure and reliable private network using licensed spectrum. This report examines the use cases for which MPNs will be deployed, including connected workers, site security, connected assets, robotic processes, and transportation. It also looks very closely at the various deployment scenarios and the likely verticals into which MPNs will deployed, including manufacturing, transportation, supply chain, oil & gas, education and many more. In particular, it focuses on those deployments where the MPNs will be used to facilitate new Internet of Things (IoT) applications. It also includes Transforma Insights’ forecast for the number of IoT connections that will be supported by private networks, and in which verticals. This is the second in a series of three reports on Mobile Private Networks. The others are ‘Mobile Private Networks for IoT: 5G capabilities and new dedicated spectrum drive demand’ and ‘Mobile Private Networks for IoT: Who will be the winners?’

                                The topic of mobile private networks (MPNs) has been high on the technology agenda during 2020. In particular it is seen as one of the most immediate opportunities associated with 5G. The last twelve months has also seen an increasing availability of spectrum that will be useful for MPNs. This report examines the reasons why MPNs have moved to the top of the agenda for many technology companies, the particular appeal of 5G as a technology, and the related issue of the availability of dedicated spectrum, including detailed analysis of the awards in Germany, UK, US and many other countries. This is the first in a series of three reports on Mobile Private Networks. The others are ‘Mobile Private Networks for IoT: Which sectors will see the biggest adoption?’ and ‘Mobile Private Networks for IoT: Who will be the winners?’

                                    The ‘IoT Connectivity Support Platform’ is a critical piece of middleware deployed by Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to handle the activation, management and billing for the cellular connectivity upon which IoT devices rely. The vendor market is dominated by two main third-party vendors (Cisco and Ericsson). Many CSPs have their own in-house developed capabilities which are either their exclusive platform (as is the case with Verizon and Vodafone) or which are used alongside those of third parties (as done by Deutsche Telekom and Telefonica). A recent report ‘Communications Service Provider (CSP) IoT Peer Benchmarking 2020’ (September, 2020) examined the strategies of ten leading connectivity providers for IoT. Each profile contained a Middleware section which included, amongst other things, an examination of each’s Connectivity Support Platform strategy. This report expands upon those sections, looking at the emerging trends for Connectivity Support Platforms, including the changing dynamics for multi-sourcing of platforms, their increasingly cloud-native nature, the impact of API-ification, the arrival of 5G, OpenRAN and eUICC, and changing commercial models.

                                        Servitisation, or rendering an asset as-a-service (X-aaS) is increasingly frequently talked about in the IoT and PLM domains, and the operational benefits have been explored at length. But the concept of servitisation could potentially be more far-reaching and transformational than is generally realised. In this Key Topic Insight report, we explore some of the knock-on and second-order effects of servitisation, including in secondary markets, financial markets, and in terms of market size.
