Re: VMWare?
Yes, it is one of the most popular and attracting inventions in this age of technology and now the mobile networks are going to be served as the cloud service and it gives us a bunch of facilities like storing the data on the mobile, printing anything directly connecting a printer with the mobile and many more. In the case of printing, you may face a different type of errors, but those can be fixed by Epson printer error 0x69, you can also get lots of redirection to solve other errors in this regarding.

Re: Costs
For IoT or an MVNO who wants to start out with thier own EPC (smart move), this can be a good entry option - despite the costs - due to no lag time for servers, networking, etc. Not worth flogging the dead horse argument that renting servers is cheaper. TCO in AWS is a matter of scale, and it takes a lot to get close.

Costs
 

AWS is probably wildly inappropriate to use to offer these kinds of services.  The cost to rent the hardware is dramatically higher than dropping servers in data centers.  Go run the math.  You will see it is about 3x the cost.  The reason to use AWS here would be some form of peak load challenges whether that is turn up of major new traffic, working around network failures or some other form change based challenge.

If you are renting spectrum and deploying radios just to smack yourself in the head and say "Hey we should have bought some routers.", then your company has much bigger problems.  Unlike Enterprise networks, service provider networks need to optimize for cost.  AWS has nothing to do with building low cost anything.

Web clouds cannot replace telco clouds
AWS or any other web cloud may be good for some things, but it is unable to provide carrier-grade reliability, responsiveness, latency, etc. Not to mention connectivity and other parts of the equation.

On the other hand, if you add telco capabilities to web clouds and harden the connectivity, it looses the initial cost attractiveness.

So, what's in it for MVNOs?

Re: Secure spectrum and offer mobile services without needing to build a network
the major barrier to entry in mobile and 5G is spectrum and the radio access network

You don't need to be an expert to figure that out! For the most part right now we are talking about IoT and enterprise core networks using leased radio access. MVNOs and operator sub-brands are also candidates.

Re: Secure spectrum and offer mobile services without needing to build a network
if you had signficant user plane traffic you might find hosting the EPC yourself was cheaper than using AWS.

Yes, this is a major barrier, alhtough perhaps less acute for IoT. Cloud platforms will have to reduce cost signifcantly to carry 4G/5G user-plane. There are a few options  for this.

Re: Secure spectrum and offer mobile services without needing to build a network
I tend to agree with James. I am not the expert here (Gabriel?) but I was under the impression that the major barrier to entry in mobile and 5G is spectrum and the radio access network, which seems to account for the vast bulk of the cost. And then, as James says, you need that fiber in the ground for backhaul and transport - also expensive.

Good Article
In my opinion, in the near future, cloud services will contain 90% of all information, on the one hand it's good, the internal memory of the device will not be so important and you will always be able to restore data, and on the other it will be difficult to ensure the security of information stored in the cloud

Secure spectrum and offer mobile services without needing to build a network
Leaving aside the challenge of buying spectrum, wouldn't you also need to build a radio access network and transport links? Perhaps you mean secure an MVNO agreement and then with an EPC running on AWS you can start offering a service. It is an interesting way of lowering the barriers to entry although I expect if you had signficant user plane traffic you might find hosting the EPC yourself was cheaper than using AWS.

VMWare?
VMware has been doing Network as a Service for a few years.

 

Going forward 

Google Kubernetes made the Container only Services Model statement with RedHat:
