MVNO Types and Operational Models

MVNO Types and Operational Models

MVNO types, e.g. branded reseller, service provider, full MVNO, etc. are defined by which of the operational components the MVNO manages and which one the network operator manages. A MVNO does not own spectrum, instead it leases and resells network capacity in cooperation with a network operator

MVNO Types

Reseller MVNO (Branded Reseller)

RESELLER MVNO (Branded Reseller)

A reseller MVNO will either operate under its own brand or co-branded with the mobile network operator (MNO). In most cases, the branded reseller brings a brand, distribution channels and/or a large existing customer base to the table, from which it can leverage its sales.
