Roaming Vendor Hub:
Competitive Intelligence 2023

October 2023

The Most Detailed Competitive Intelligence Available on Mobile Roaming Vendors

The Kaleido Vendor Hub provides the industry’s most thorough assessment of roaming vendors’ product offerings.

Updated annually, the research is based on extensive primary and secondary research, conducted over a 4-month period involving more than 400 hours of research. The process covers all established roaming vendors, enabling like-for-like comparisons of product capabilities which also enables all vendors included to be assessed equally and on their own merits.

Kaleido’s 2023 Vendor Hub has been expanded, now assessing 51 separate vendors. Each vendor is active across one of the eight roaming product categories assessed, receiving product score(s) alongside company-specific profiles to give clear and impartial analysis to inform vendor positioning and competitive benchmarking.

Kaleido’s method entails categorising vendors based on their product excellence, recognising each company’s distinct market positioning, problem-solving skills, innovative prowess, and their ability to align with current market needs and future demands.
