The Death Of GRX

Press release from: Digital Oxygen

As big cloud service providers like Microsoft, Amazon, and Google invest heavily in cloud-telco services, one of the most affected businesses will be traditional GRX/IPX providers, finds the recent discussion paper of the Munich-based telecommunications consultancy Digital Oxygen.

Munich, July 22th 2020.
With their most recent telco acquisitions, big cloud service providers like Microsoft (Azure), Amazon (AWS), and Google (Google Cloud) are showing a keen interest in the further expansion of their services to the telco industry.
“With its acquisition of Metaswitch Networks and Affirmed Networks, we expect Microsoft to offer its own Network Function Virtualization (NFV) services to MNOs in the near future.” says Axel Meiling, Partner at Digital Oxygen.
Traditionally, most of an MNO’s network functions require dedicated hardware. With NFV, these components can be virtualized, reducing costs but also making the operator more flexible: If e.g. more capacity is needed, operators can spin it up on demand.
The natural first step for MNOs to switch to NFV will be gateways – network components that enable the communication with other operator networks and are anyhow close to the network’s borders.
GRX/IPX providers offer services like interconnectivity between networks, data, and financial clearing. As MNOs move to the cloud, interconnectivity between these networks will be provided within the cloud. As a consequence traditional GRX/IPX providers will become obsolete. While this shift requires a critical mass of MNOs relying on interconnectivity in the cloud, the strong advantages make this a very likely development.
For Meiling, this will only be the first step towards a full move-to-the cloud for MNOs: “Once operators have a foot in the cloud door with gateway and interconnectivity services, the shift of core network functions to the cloud is just a matter of time.”

The Future of Enterprise Connectivity: How MNOs Can Solve the eSIM Dilemma
As enterprises increasingly adopt eSIM-capable phones, they start to demand eSIM support from their operators - a dilemma for MNOs: While they must support the eSIM to stay in the Enterprise game, it will inevitably lead to lower revenues as the eSIM makes switching operators a lot easier. The recent discussion paper by the Munich-based telecommunications consultancy Digital Oxygen shows how MNOs can extend their Enterprise solutions to escape this

Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) to Gain Ground Through Greater Bandwidth …
Global Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) Market: Snapshot A highly positive short-term driver for mobile virtual network operators is the displacement of excess bandwidth by 3G telecom operators into MNO and MVNO for leverage. A lot of 3G bandwidth is going unused in developed economies, which can be easily rented out to mobile virtual network operators. The operators can use this to boost their revenue generation and add better customized services.

How MNOs can generate revenue from Machine-to-Machine services
Paderborn (Germany) 15 March 2011: Many operators have realized the revenue opportunities for machine- to-machine (M2M) business. Taking a look at today’s margins for this business, it becomes obvious that it will be a tough task to realize profitable margins for these M2M services. To act profitable, operators need to offer connections on a high volume basis bundled with dedicated managed service offerings. What is more, they need to dramatically
