Mobile Policy Management Solutions Market to Approach $1.6 Billion in 2016

New York, New York - May 25, 2011

Mobile data usage has skyrocketed over the last year or two, and mobile network operators are struggling to keep up with the surge in demand. Operators need policy solutions to manage the bandwidth congestion. Forecasts from ABI Research show that the market for policy management servers in mobile broadband networks will grow from approximately $350 million in 2010 to almost $1.6 billion by 2016.

“In most businesses, a big increase in demand for your products and services would be considered a good thing,” says principal analyst Jim Eller. “Instead of trying to block or throttle data traffic, mobile operators need to figure out how they can profit from the huge opportunity that has fallen into their laps. With worldwide data traffic volume growing at a CAGR of more than 50% annually, trillions of dollars in data revenues are at stake.”

“Policy is more than just bandwidth management,” adds practice director Aditya Kaul. “Policy is also about quality assurance, flexible tariff plans, and creating new revenue streams.”

The new ABI Research study “Policy Management for Mobile Broadband” explains how policy management can improve the quality of the user experience, and reduce the need for additional capital expenditure to expand mobile data networks. Policy solutions will support new tariff plans which allow subscribers to interactively customize their mobile data experience.
