Kaleido Intelligence’s Roaming Vendor Hub presents the most detailed competitive intelligence available on mobile roaming, providing a full understanding of the market for all roaming vendors and wholesale service providers.

The 95-page Sponsored Roaming Vendor Hub report, based on extensive primary and secondary research, allows  leading providers to be compared equally and on their own merits.

Kaleido’s  approach to competitive analysis will finally enable all roaming vendors to showcase their strengths on an equal playing field. This will enable mobile operators and service providers to choose a vendor based on their product/service offering strengths rather than existing popularity.

Our approach focuses on categorising vendors, examining their strengths and weaknesses, identifying the company’s unique market position, problem-solving capabilities, innovation leadership and, finally, how the vendor is positioned to meet MNO/MVNO needs and requirements.

Report Deliverables:

  • Strengths of roaming sponsor offerings for the roaming industry, providing services for tier-2 MNOs, MVNOs, IoTVNOs and travel eSIM providers.
  • Insight into company strategy and its key strengths, alongside a focus on product innovation
  • Key clients and partner evaluation, where applicable
  • Scoring for all roaming vendors based on:
    • Company positioning score: Company positioning and industry specific performance measured
    • Roaming product leadership score: Competitive benefits analysed specific to the platform
    • Innovation and future prospects score: Awarded to each vendor based on key strengths, innovation and future business scope
