IoT Monetization – BSS Essentials for CSPs
Date / Time: Thursday, May 2, 2019, 12:00 pm New York / 5:00 pm London
sponsored by
Steve Bell, Senior Analyst, Heavy Reading

Curt Minter, Vice President of Digital Services, CSG

Every forecast for the IoT indicates a trillion dollar industry within a few years. CSPs are set to get a share of that revenue through device connectivity. But there is a far greater opportunity beckoning - providing monetization capabilities to the broader IoT ecosystem. This in turn has implications for CSPs as they expand their relationships into new verticals and business models.

This webinar will discuss the impacts to BSS systems and the essential monetization capabilities CSPs can put in place today to manage their 2020 and beyond revenue streams. We will cover:

  • Managing the diversity of offerings with IoT-centric catalogues
  • Deploying rich charging capabilities that match pricing to cost profiles
  • Managing the partner ecosystem through standards and automation
  • Exploiting cloud first technologies and the implications of 5G
