Techopedia explains Mobile Network Operator (MNO)

Mobile network operators create a network of high-end telecommunication devices, specialized software and client-end subscriber identity modules to provide end-to-end communication between wired and wireless telecom end-user devices.

Mobile network operators install a number of base stations, while mobile subscribers use a circuit-like chip in their cell phones to access network services when they are in the range or coverage cell of a base station. Besides providing voice dialing and receiving capabilities, MNOs also provide data communications through text messages and Internet connectivity and are now providing video communications as well.
