31 percent of all IoT SIMs were managed with third-party IoT CMPs at the end of 2021

Berg Insight, the world’s leading IoT market research provider, today released new findings about the market for IoT connectivity management platforms (CMPs), a standard component in the value proposition from mobile operators and IoT MVNOs around the world.

Developments in the areas of network virtualisation, eSIM technology and LPWA networking are currently driving a shift in the market towards a greater diversity of IoT connectivity management services. Delivery of global IoT connectivity services comprises a key focus area for most vendors, propelled by enterprises’ demand for managing their global IoT device deployments through one interface or IoT connectivity service provider.

About 31 percent of the global installed base of 2.1 billion IoT SIMs were managed using third-party IoT CMPs at the end of 2021. Cisco is the largest IoT CMP provider by mobile operator partners, supporting the IoT operations of more than 60 mobile operators worldwide. The main challengers are Ericsson, Vodafone and MAVOCO. These companies focus on reducing the complexity associated with multinational deployments of cellular IoT devices. The China-based vendors Huawei and Whale Cloud are key players on the domestic market.

Several IoT MVNOs, including 1NCE, Eseye and Soracom also provide white-labelled or branded IoT connectivity services via mobile operators. In addition to being a strategic partner to Deutsche Telekom, 1NCE recently announced a deal with SoftBank, which will sell 1NCE’s IoT services exclusively in 19 markets across the Asia-Pacific region.

The major US-based IoT MVNO Aeris’ acquisition of Ericsson’s IoT business in December 2022 marks a significant development in the space. A first priority for Aeris will be to establish a sustainable business model for the loss-making IoT Accelerator business. Depending on the response from mobile operators using the platform, Aeris could potentially develop a managed service offering around the IoT Accelerator, which can be resold by mobile operators. The new IoT Accelerator Device Connect service already resembles the offering of many IoT MVNOs, in which enterprises can buy managed connectivity services from multiple mobile operators off-the-shelf via the Device Connect global marketplace.
